Brunch at The Alchemist Media City

If you’re from Manchester or the North, chances are you’ll know the establishments run by Living Ventures called The Alchemist. The first one was and still is in Spinningfields and there’s also one on New York Street in Manchester. They also have branches in Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Chester, Oxford and London. Simply said, they know how to do a cool bar with fantastic food.

I used to live in Salford Quays, when we first came up to Manchester and when we were there years ago, the BBC had just moved up to Media City and it was a bit of a ghost-town.

Party, Prosecco and Pink Ladies – A Hen do in Manchester

So this weekend I got to join in the celebrations of the gorgeous bride-to-be Kirsty, as we partied all weekend for her hen do in Manchester. The weekend of fun and frivolities started on Friday, straight after work, when we all met at the City Warehouse Apartments – our home for the next 2 days.

With the bride-to-be in the Penthouse Suite, we also took over a few of the rooms on the next floor down – it felt like we were back in Halls of Residence, running between rooms, giggling and sneaking along the corridors. So Friday was about getting to know each other over a drink (or ten!), having a laugh and sharing our memories of of Kirsty and Lee. There were a few silly hen games, an incredibly thoughtful trip down memory-lane courtesy of the bride’s sister Lynsey, and even a special, one-night-only, comeback appearance by none other than the Moggy Mols!

Bubbles were sipped, pizza was quaffed (much needed!) and there was a lot of dancing! Thank you Mr Robin Thicke…hey hey hey!
