The drinks were fantastic, especially their signature cocktails. However service was lacking, which made for an average experience.

Highly overrated place surprisingly well staffed but they missed the most important point”service” Much attention to where you can sit but nobody served for 40 minutes after taking the order. They just had two bartenders who were mostly chatting and wasting time. Had to leave...without a drink... in fact the beef snack which was ordered 20 minutes after placing the cocktail order was served!! Please avoid not much of an ambianceMore

My partner and I were looking for a trendy cocktail bar to enjoy the evening and we stumbled upon this little bar on Trip Advisor. It was just what we wanted, sheek, a large range of cocktails and a chilled vibe. Unfortunately it turned into...anything but that, the outdoors area was a mess and too dark to see a drink in sight. The gave us an extensive menu which looked brilliant though overpriced, we expected it at a trendy bar. After ordering he came back 10mins later to tell us they didn't have those and too choose from others, this time it was a completely different list and he wouldn't give us the old one. We then ordered a basic esperesso martini just to wait 10mins more to be told they don't have that either. They messed us around and it became very uncomfortable: would not recommend.More

It was easy to find out this place. Especially it is located in the old quarter near Hoan Kiem Lake. Staffs are friendly and smiley. Drinks are abit pricey but good. The coolest thing about this bar is the 'chill' atmosphere and very artistic paintings...all over the wall. Will definitely come back again.More

My friend and I went there to give a try and we were not disappointed by The Alchemist. The place was set up by a group of young locals. They have good taste and their cocktails were simply delicious. The place was crowded, the staff...were good looking men :)More
