Nestled in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach on historic Clematis Street, The Alchemist Gastropub & Bar defies convention. With its' dark wood floors, antique candle holders, and coffin bar tables, the space gives off a sophisticatedly gothic vibe that would make Tim Burton proud.
The distinctive bar menu, curated by bar captain Scott Hart features craft beers and exquisite cocktails showcasing unique ingredients like cherrywood smoked ice, black walnut bitters, burnt lemon oil, and absinthe mist offers an elevated bar experience that one wouldn’t soon forget. Their menu which boasts “Progressive American” cuisine, a phrase coined by Executive Chef Tim Farley could be amply described as elevated gastropub fare. Dishes like their Grilled Oysters finished with maitre d’ butter and pecorino Romano, decadent Devil’s Eggs with truffle infused yolk and caviar, and the Korean Food Truck Tacos with succulent pork belly and kimchi relish are a good warmup. Lighter options include their Watermelon & French Feta, and Beet & Burrata salads are deliciously bright and refreshing.
As for the main courses, crowd favorites include the Fish & Chips which features Atlantic cod with a crust made with salt & vinegar kettle chip crust, the Alchemist Burger topped with a healthy slab of pork belly, and their crown jewel the Ribeye Tomahawk! A 44 oz. USDA Prime, dry aged Ribeye chop served with roasted bone marrow, pearl onion & sweet potato hash, which you can dress up with Bourgogne foie gras or jumbo lump crab Oscar if you feel like getting fancy.
So if you're looking for a great bar atmosphere, coupled with delicious food, this place is definitely worth checking out.
