About The Alchemist - Embassy Gardens

Embassy Gardens and the surrounding area have blossomed into a food, drink and leisure hub. The Alchemist is one of the top hospitality companies that managed to secure a spot, bringing its signature theatrical cocktails and global food to Nine Elms. The team at The Alchemist have mastered the art of molecular mixology, turning out unusual concoctions for enthralled diners. Perfect for quiet dates all the way up to birthday bashes, this is a versatile spot to experience top-notch drinking and dining.

The drinks selection at The Alchemist is pretty unique, featuring ingredients such as magic, science and fire alongside more tangible spirits and liqueurs. Try the signature cherry Poppins, made with raspberry gin, amaretto, cherry, strawberry shrub syrup and citrus, served with a cherry fog bubble on top. Don’t miss the flash Gordon, consisting of Glenmorangie X, king's ginger, plum and honey syrup, lemon and a dash of real fire. Aside from these theatrical mixes, there are also more classic blends, like old fashioneds, daiquiris, pina coladas, mojitos, margaritas and more. Each of these, however, still has some Alchemist flair.

Those who aren’t as into cocktails are just as well-catered for, with plenty of wines, sparkling and beers to choose from. When it comes to food, The Alchemist once again delivers the goods, with plenty of choice throughout the day. Those starting their day can go for the full Alchemist breakfast, roasted squash hash, wings and waffles, or a stack of pancakes just to name a few. Later in the day, diners can chow down on some serious burger options, like a Korean fried chicken burger, French dip steak sandwich, plant-based phish finger sandwich or a double BBQ party burger with secret glaze, American cheese, crispy bacon, hickory sauce, fire mayo and a giant panko onion ring. Mains also include smoking boards, fish and chips, steaks, curries, chicken tenders and more, so there really is something for everyone.
