Five years on, the Alchemist is still the jewel in the crown for Spinningfields

The Alchemist Cocktail Bar Celebrates 5 Years in Business - SantanderCB

The Alchemist cocktail bar in Manchester's Spinningfields district has celebrated five years in business. It was the first such undertaking by Living Ventures, which sought to stand out by focusing on molecular and scientific concoctions from its distinguished team of mixologists. The Alchemist has been a hit since its doors opened in December 2010, and Living Ventures has enjoyed a period of success which has seen its inclusion as one of the fastest growing privately owned UK companies in the Sunday Times Fast-Track survey (ranked 20th in 2014). Living Ventures has banking facilities with Santander, and has attracted an injection of private equity funding through Palatine Private Equity to help fuel its ongoing expansion plans for other cities in the UK.
