If you’re looking for an exciting and unusual date night experience, Alchemy is definitely one I’d recommend! In fact, the Sassy Assistant Editor Lexi and I have been raving about it so much at the office, we may just have to head over for a girls night too! The quirky, charismatic lounge space is ideal for a pre-dinner drink, and the pitch-black downstairs restaurant is where all the crazy happens. From the human-train leading you to your table, to feeling your way to the bread basket, dining in the dark stimulates all your senses!
Part of the fun is guessing what you’re eating so I won’t offer spoilers, but I will say we absolutely adore their starters, mains and desserts. The whole evening was made complete by our waiter, Michael, who truly was the best guide we could have asked for! His visual impairment allowed him to navigate the room with such confidence and ease, whilst I struggled to find my cutlery (and crockery…). The experience made me reflect on the obstacles that people with different abilities overcome (with such strength and commitment) every day, and consider all that I take for granted every moment. Top quality service, great food, and hilariously open conversations? Check!
