The Alchemist has reopened its doors to reveal its reimagined Trinity Leeds bar following a two week revamp project and £240,000 investment.

It first opened its doors in 2013 and the venue has unveiled its striking new look which is now open to the public all day, seven days a week.

The Alchemist will breathe a new lease of life into one of the brand’s original sites, where guests can revel in the bar’s trademark ‘copper-cased wonderland’ decor that’s created a richer, more immersive, and shareable bar and restaurant experience for guests.

Since 2013, Trinity Leeds has sold almost 1.5 million cocktails – approximately one cocktail a minute during trading hours. It’s anticipated that the revivified venue will continue to go from strength to strength, keeping theatre and innovative all day drinking and dining experiences at its core.

The re-imagining of the sites in Trinity Leeds and New York Street in Manchester was led by Macaulay Sinclair, who have brought the two popular venues in line with the look and feel of The Alchemist’s most recent openings.

Simon Potts, managing director of The Alchemist, said: “The design of our venues is paramount to the overall Alchemist experience, with drama, theatre and surprise at our core. As the brand has evolved and grown, so has the look and feel of the Alchemist environments. The refurbishments have brought Trinity and New York Street in line with our recently opened venues, providing a warmer, more decadent and indulgent look and feel. We’ll continue to do the same across other locations when the time is right as we maintain our expansion and growth plans.”
