The Alchemist - Coming soon to Newcastle's Grey Quarter

Hot on the heels of it's Greek Street opening in Leeds, I am so excited to hear that pretty soon, Newcastle will be home to it's very own branch of fashionable restaurant chain 'The Alchemist' after the company have signed a 25 year lease with intu Eldon Square.

The Alchemist will be double fronted with the option to enter directly through the mall or from it's entrance on Nelson Street. Open for coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails, I am confident the restaurant come bar will be just as popular as The Botanist which is also owned by the same parent company Living Ventures.

Known for it's theatrical molecular mixology, The Alchemist will definitely be a real talking point in the city when it opens later this year. Smokey Old Fashioned anyone?

Intu are investing £25 million into their new Grey's Quarter which will be home to a total of 20 new restaurants including TGI Fridays, Tapas Revolution, Ed's Diner, Frankie & Benny's, Chiquito, Bella Italia, Handmade Burger Co, Giraffe and more. I have to say though, it's The Alchemist that excites me the most!

Have you visited a branch of The Alchemist before? I'd love to hear more about their extra special cocktails and if you have any recommendations for me to look out for.
