The Alchemist’s Bevis Marks venue gets a new look

Following its latest opening in Cardiff, The Alchemist has invested £280,000 into transforming its Bevis Marks site.

The central London location closed on the 6 August 2018 to undergo a two-week refurbishment, and is re-opening its doors to unveil the new look.

Led by Macaulay Sinclair, the design focuses around The Alchemist’s trademark “copper-cased wonderland” decor with warm interiors featuring amber, coppers and reds accompanied by unique and gothic artworks — all created to ensure “a richer, more immersive, and shareable bar and restaurant experience” for guests.

As the operator’s first London venue, The Alchemist Bevis Marks opened its doors in 2014. The transformation realigns the popular destination with the look and feel of The Alchemist’s most recent openings.

Jenny McPhee, head of brand for The Alchemist, said: “The design of our venues is paramount to the overall Alchemist experience.

“As the brand has evolved and grown, so has the look and feel of The Alchemist environments. Our guests will really see a difference in our design and offering as we aim to elevate our venues with each launch and refurbishment.

“We have two further London openings coming up within the next year, and it was very important to us that all London venues incorporate the new Alchemist style.”

Londoners will soon be able to revel in three London locations with St Martins Lane opening in November 2018, and Old Street, Shoreditch in March 2019.
