The Alchemist conjures up new bar concept for Liverpool One
Grosvenor Europe has announced that The Alchemist, the Palatine Private Equity–backed group led by Simon Potts, is to launch a brand new concept bar, Aether, in Liverpool One this September.
Aether will be adjacent to The Club House on Chavasse Park. The 1,600-sq ft bar is a nod to the brand’s original roots, with a focus on cocktails and live music. Aether will capture the glamour of a bygone era and feature 21 cocktails focusing on the elements. Providing 40 covers inside, Aether will also include an immersive performance area for artists from neo-soul, jazz and hip-hop genres. Additional alfresco seating for 80 covers will overlook Chavasse Park.
Alison Clegg, director, asset management at Grosvenor Europe, said: “Aether is very exciting and will add something quite special to Liverpool One‘s thriving evening economy. We have a strong track record of working closely with leading brands to create the ideal space within Liverpool One. Our collaboration with The Alchemist team is set to become a new hotspot in the city.”
Cushman & Wakefield and Metis Real Estate Advisors acted for Liverpool One. Westmark Estates and Harlow Property Consultants both represented Aether, on behalf of The Alchemist.
