Manchester-based Reid Architects have conceived a structure that is reflective of the energetic and creative environment in which it is located. In conjunction with construction specialist Artez Group, the firm has delivered a landmark, futuristic building which includes bold and modernist features, from the angular blackened steel and bronze bar, to the dazzling gold clad roof and walls.

The bar wraps around from the interior to the enclosed outdoor terrace which will be ideal for al fresco drinking and dining, offering sweeping views of the water and the surrounding area which still gives a glimpse of the enduring and fascinating legacy of Salford’s industrial heritage. 

Open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the carefully crafted drinks menu ensures a cocktail selection that is second to none including classics such as the Smokey Old Fashioned and new additions such as the Battenberg. 

“This is our eleventh Alchemist in the UK and a significant one for the brand," says Simon Potts, MD of The Alchemist. "This particular building has a unique and visionary design aesthetic as befitting our location, and the team are really looking forward to welcoming everyone who works and lives in this vibrant waterside community.”
