Alchemy is one of those rare combinations of excellent restaurant with a hopping bar - a late-night spot in the Cooper-Young neighborhood with a scene that includes everything - young singles, older couples, all races, all economic backgrounds. The bartenders are really on it - rarely do you go for more than a few minutes without a check-in from one, if you are lucky enough to grab a seat at the huge U-shaped bar. And if you're not, never fear - there are small tables and a few comfy couches to lounge on, although check with the hostess to be sure those seats are available, they are sometimes reserved. The drink menu is inventive and Memphis-themed, and the restaurant's signature small plates can be ordered at any seat. There's loads of movement from patrons going to tables, people bar hopping in Cooper-Young, and people simply walking around, checking out the scene – so Alchemy feels like it's constantly in motion.
