The Alchemist is located in one of Basel’s historical buildings at Schifflände, where a pharmacy once stood. The venue’s café, bar, lounge, and restaurant all feature breathtaking interior design. The ambiance of the place is like a genuine curiosity cabinet, with warm and patinated surfaces in dark colors. The individual light fixtures made of brass, gold, and copper dominate the décor. The restaurant features an open kitchen, and in the basement, there is a laboratory and production workshop that can be rented for events and meetings. The Alchemist is a place where experimentation, pleasure, and well-being meet.
The Alchemist’s menu is abundant with amazing signature drinks, homemade liqueurs and infusions, and authentic and healthy dishes from around the world, all served in a unique ambiance. One of the most intriguing cocktails is the Cucurbita, made with mezcal, pumpkin, lime juice, cinnamon, and spices. The dishes are healthy, tasty, and culturally diverse, catering to all tastes and preferences. The menu is constantly changing, based on seasonal availability and experimentation.
