The Alchemist is to launch a new concept bar, Aether, in Liverpool ONE this September.
Aether will be next to The Club House on Chavasse Park and is a nod to the brand’s original roots, with a focus on cocktails and live music. The bar will capture the glamour of a bygone era and feature 21 cocktails focusing on the elements. Aether will also include an immersive performance area for artists from neo-soul, jazz and hip-hop genres. Additional alfresco seating for will overlook Chavasse Park.
Commenting on choosing Liverpool ONE to launch Aether, Simon Potts says: “The Alchemist is a great brand that continues to grow at a sensible rate – there’s a really exciting pipeline of openings for the core business and a clear strategy for expansion. We’re an entrepreneurial team at heart though and when the opportunity to do something a little different presented itself we wanted to take that challenge on. We look forward to introducing the new concept later this year.”
Steven Connolly, estate director at Liverpool ONE, added: “Aether is a very exciting concept that will add something quite special to Liverpool ONE‘s thriving evening economy. It enhances our already blossoming portfolio of restaurants and bars found on The Terrace and Chavasse Park. Our collaboration with The Alchemist team is set to become a new hotspot in the city.”
The announcement coincides with Food Glorious Food, a month-long celebration of food at Liverpool ONE, which began on June 14 and will run until 15 July. As a key feature of the campaign, Liverpool ONE hosted a two-day festival, Feast Weekend, on June 30 and July 1. Over twenty of Liverpool ONE’s restaurants, bars and independent operators provided visitors with the best global cuisine available over the two days. Adding to the experience were live bands and DJs, resulting in the most successful Sunday of the year so far.
