Alchemy at Apotheke

Sunday night walking through a tiny alley in Chinatown and opening the only wooden door to that leads us to Apotheke. If you walk too fast or don't pay attention, you'll miss it.
It's dimly lit with an air of mystery and alchemy. It feels like an alchemists store with lightbulbs that look like concoctions are on the boil and mysterious bottles dressing the bar shelf.
Love the attention to detail
The menu/ prescriptions is extensive. Prescriptions are divided into stimulants, therapeutic treatments, pain killers, stress relievers, health and beauty, aphrodisiacs, euphoric enhancers, fruit extracts.
The Alchemist (barman) at work
All you need to do is tell the barman know what liquor you're into and the taste profile you enjoy, and for sure there's a prescription for you. We started with stress reliever and a health&beauty prescriptions.
Bees Knees & Dr Ruth
Dr Ruth is a health and beauty prescription with California strawberries, vodka, rosemary, agave nectar, lime and champagne. The bees knees is a stress reliever with Vodka, bee pollen, goji berry reduction, pink guava, ginger, lime and agave nectar - and nectar it is. Can you believe bee pollen?!
Bees Knees
I can't remember what this last one was called but it was super yum and the most popular cocktail around our table of 10.

Don't bother with the waitress go up to bar and get the bar men to put on a show. They are welcoming and super chatty, and I got a free shot. The Sunday night there was live music a blend of jazz, eastern, middle eastern fusion - we couldn't figure the genre but we luuurved it! This is my kinda of place tipples galore!
