THE opening date for a new bar and lounge in Basingstoke has been announced.

As previously reported, the owners of Alchemy Bar & Lounge, opening at the Top of Town, are hoping to offer a relaxed haven for the mature audience with unique focus on eco-consciousness and community.

Owned and operated by a dedicated duo, 35-year-old Jimmy Ward and 34-year-old Thomas Hull, Alchemy Bar & Lounge is an extension of their already successful venture, Alchemy Organic Salons in Basingstoke.

The duo has now announced that the business will officially open on Tuesday, November 14.

It will open at 16 Winchester Street, to fill the space previously occupied by the Basingstoke Service Centre.

Jimmy shared his excitement for next week.

"We are opening our doors after a long wait," he said.

"We can’t wait to show the place to all our Alchemy clients who come to our saloon already and also the new people who would like to visit us. We put our blood, sweat and tears into this project. We hope everyone enjoys it."

Previously, Jimmy said the atmosphere within Alchemy Bar & Lounge will be a far cry from the typical late-night party venue.

"This is an environment designed for those seeking a relaxed, community-oriented experience. The focus is on human interaction, with table service to ensure a warm and personal touch and not QR codes.

"We want to create somewhere that's a community of people. It is going to have gorgeous drinks in gorgeous glasses in a relaxed environment."

Customers can expect organic wines provided by James Pettit, organic cocktails, and an impressive eco-friendly beer pump system known as "smart dispense", a nod to the establishment's green ethos.

Jimmy said this system reduces the use of harmful chemicals and waste, making it "one of the first in Basingstoke to implement such a sustainable approach".

The new business will also feature its own blend of organic coffee.

The long-term vision includes transforming the upstairs space into an organic restaurant.
