Bar review: Alchemies, Larnaca

The pedestrianised area of Larnaca’s Ermou Street brings a more cosmopolitan and modern vibe to the city. While it has been a few years now since the change, one of the bars that opened with the pedestrianisation seems to have established itself as a mainstay.

Alchemies has something for every time of day. Whether a coffee with friends, a bite to eat or a night out drinking, Alchemies has it all. Sometimes when a place offers too many different services, it seems as though they may have an identity crisis and aren’t sure of what they actually want to be. Alchemies seems to have been able to successfully combine all the above.

For early morning coffee, you can sit in a small enclosed area on the square or tucked into the little alley running alongside. Alchemies prides itself on offering Italian, Lavazza coffee that has a lovely robust flavour.

Keeping in line with health trends, Alchemies has added a healthy section on their menu with the nutritional information about the different food also displayed. If you fancy something a little more indulgent, there are also options of burgers, pastas and the like. Perfect for a business lunch or a casual meet up for a bite to eat with friends.

By night, Alchemies completely transforms with music and drinks flowing well into the night. Alchemies serves a variety of different cocktails, and keeping in line with the name, some are even served in what looks like a beaker from a science lab! Others are served in tiki glasses, which is always fun! If cocktails aren’t your thing, there is a large selection of wine to choose from, alongside all the regular drinks you would expect to find at a bar. Alchemies sometimes has special events and throw a good party. You can keep up to date with events on their social media.
