The Alchemist to open its first venue south of the River Thames at Embassy Gardens


This spring, creative cocktail bar and restaurant concept, The Alchemist, will be opening on Tuesday 24 March at the riverside neighbourhood Embassy Gardens in Nine Elms.

Off the back of a hugely successful launch over in Canary Wharf at the end of 2019, which saw the group sell over 5,000 cocktails in its first five days. Embassy Gardens will be The Alchemist’s fifth venue in London, with existing sites in Old Street, Bevis Marks and St Martin’s Lane.

The new 5,200 ft venue sits in the heart of Embassy Gardens and will offer a stunning 94- cover restaurant for all-day dining, 66-cover bar and 24-cover outdoor terrace. The Alchemist Embassy Gardens has the groups classic sleek design, with crisp geometric lines a striking bronzed bar and amber pendant lighting.

Embassy Gardens is one of Europe’s most highly profiled regeneration projects that is
establishing a new community within central London, wrapped around the new US Embassy. The development’s riverside location in LDN Travel Zone One on the South Bank making Embassy Gardens well connected, with the neighbourhood a 10-minute walk from Vauxhall station and the highly anticipated Northern Line extension due to open in 2021.

Embassy Gardens was the perfect space to bring our famous cocktails south of the River Thames. It’s extremely exciting to be right in the hub of this highly anticipated and state-of-the-art development and we can’t wait to open our doors in March.
