In Victorian times the area around New York Street was a highly desirable residential location, with the magnificent Portico Library and Royal Manchester Institution just a stone's throw away.
Nowadays, stone throwing is generally frowned upon and cocktail sipping and delicious dining have thankfully taken precedence. Our signature glimmering windows welcome you into an inner sanctum. A large bar area, bedecked in dark artworks and lit to stir the senses, plays host to a range of innovative events throughout the year.
As Foodinate's first national restaurant partner, The Alchemist has taken our fight against local food poverty to deprived communities across the nation. You can now head to ANY of The Alchemist venues and enjoy either the Duck Gyoza or the Chickpea Curry knowing that a hot, nourishing meal will be provided for a person in need in the exact same community as a result - at no extra cost to you! All in the power of choice...
Simon Potts, Managing Director of The Alchemist, said of the new partnership: "We love the work Foodinate do. We're the first national restaurant brand to partner with the cause and we're immensely proud to work alongside such a fantastic charitable organisation. It also allows our customers to be a part of the initiative and we look forward to seeing the difference we can together make to our local communities."
