The Alchemist: a cocktail bar with in an unusual decor

remarkable

Because of its popularity, especially on weekends, you must come before 9:00 p.m. to find a spot in this atypical bar of the old town.

Even the most jaded will agree that this is not your typical cocktail bar. A tercentenary building, restored with respect to the rules of art, houses this boutique bar that makes a point of being different. Unusual, even fantastic, the magical atmosphere borrows codes that have been tried in the sagas of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.

A majestic tree that seems to come out of nowhere grows through the bar and it is by candlelight that you get to know the drinks list of magical potions, whose subtleties are amusing: Harry Poppers, Tea Tanos (enjoy the puns), Big Bang…

It will take a while to decipher and then choose from the impressive range of beers, cocktails, and mocktails, all personalised with humour, a small caption, and the list of ingredients. Fortunately, the wait staff is open and very kind, and happy to answer all your questions.
