The Alchemist brings Molecular Mixology to Selfridges, Trafford.

Selfridges Trafford is set to dazzle customers with molecular mixology as science meets sophistication in the new pop-up bar by Alchemist, one of the city's cocktail institutions.

Set amidst the high-fashion couture and luxury accessories of Selfridges Trafford's ground floor, the bar's sleek cherry wood curves and glittering gold fixtures evoke the art deco period - the true age of the cocktail - and provide a decadent sanctuary for those wishing to be refreshed after a strenuous shopping session.

At The Alchemist the cocktail is king, where every drink served is balanced and true and the philosophy is if you don't like drinking cocktails, you've simply been drinking the wrong ones.

Explained Mark Burville from The Alchemist:

"Cocktails are the very pinnacle of the sophisticated drinking experience. There is nothing in a glass more versatile. Easy-going. Sour, savoury, sweet or boozy. Bitter, spicy, dry or smoky. Like our mixologists, our cocktails are adaptable and innovative and will be a perfect fit in the high-end surroundings of Selfridges."

Living Ventures currently has two Alchemists in city centre Manchester at Spinningfields and New York Street. A third is in the heart of Leeds and a fourth is set to open in September, bringing a glint of gold and unique mixology to the charcoal and black suits of the City of London.


Selfridges Trafford Alchemist bar launches this week and is open daily.
