Winter evenings at Alchemy 198

Creativity, book clubs, music and winter-warming food are all part of the menu in February at new Gloucester Road bar, Alchemy 198.

There will be a Window Wanderland Warmer on the Saturday evening of the trail when people can gather at the bar to swap tales of their favorite window displays. Alchemy 198 are preparing a display based on Gloucester Road, the Great British High Street.  

Danielle is offering a spiced squash and red lentil soup and a butterbean hotpot made from veggies from her allotment for this month’s Bishopston Supper Club. The evening takes place on the eve of the British Dal Festival https://britishdalfestival.com/ 

Sarah Thorp says: “We'll be pushing the lentils and pulses theme throughout the week, with an open mic session on Tuesday 12th and culminating with a Spanish style, chick pea, white bean and tomato stew with smoked paprika and garlic for our evening of Live Flamenco Music. Guitarist Cuffy will perform with percussionist and singer Kostka Garcia. The wonderful Amanda Frescura will be dancing and encouraging people to learn some moves.”
