The Alchemist to make Scottish debut

The Alchemist, the Simon Potts-led cocktail bar and restaurant concept, is to make its Scottish debut next year in a 5,700 sq ft site in Edinburgh St James.

The Alchemist will be situated on level four of Edinburgh St James, overlooking Register Square, which connects the development to Princes Street.

It will also occupy one of two flagship restaurant and bar units at the entrance to the main dining terrace at Edinburgh St James. The brand will deliver its signature ‘Theatre served’ cocktail and dining experience to the 200 cover venue.

Potts, managing director of The Alchemist, said: “Edinburgh is one of the world’s great cities and a destination we’ve long admired, but we wanted to wait for the right opportunity to present itself. Edinburgh St James fits the bill brilliantly.

“It is a vibrant and varied new destination that will appeal to tourists, office workers, residents and shoppers – the same audience that love our established venues in London and Manchester.”

Ed Corrigan, assistant leasing director at Edinburgh St James, added: “The signing of The Alchemist brings further cachet to Edinburgh St James, joining the likes of Everyman Cinema in creating an amazing F&B and leisure line-up.

“We’re confident the brand will appeal to the significant local and tourism markets in the city, and we look forward to announcing more signings soon.”
