Alambique. Kitchen, Laboratory and Bar.
¨Alambique was done thinking in the warmth of the wood and the freshness of nature.

The success of an ostentatious less project.
Its inexistent ostentatious decorations is what they like the most, couples or group of friends hat attend attracted by the program of classic Rock or Reggae that in this region it’s a big differentiator. Its dark environment, simple and far from stereotypes of the rock bars make this cocktail bar in a unique place.
An attracting bizarre decoration.
Alambique is located in the middle of a chaotic zone of Medellin, right next to one of the most busy streets of the city. From the outside you can only notice the place if you look up and see all the vegetation of the many plants in the balcony.

Again full of plants.
After you get over the feeling of going in the wrong place, you feel the need to look around to connect with the atmosphere and admire the details of a rustic space full of iron, wood and green; with a kitchen in plain sight and the shelves full of FS kitchenware needed for chefs and bartenders . The whole balcony is a bar that looks over Medellin´s sunsets.
The FS furniture in the venue is a mix of antique shop, recuperated pieces or pieces designed by them like the table with a central flower pot also selected pieces from Francisco Segarra´s collection commercialized by the firm ¨La Revolución Industrial¨.
The back of the bar reflects the spirit of the place, constructed in recycled wood, it extends towards the roof, decorated with curious objects, books, plants and a selection of liquors of the bar is the background curtain of the majestic bar, constructed from one piece of pinion ear tree, a fine wood from the region, complemented by a line of long chairs or Lara stools from the seating collection of Francisco Segarra.
The soft light and the decoration turn the environment into something cosy and perfect to enjoy the new cocktails and culinary proposal, based in the elaborated dishes made in a slow and well cared process, Lots of oven and lots of tropic heat, with ingredients from the region, always experimenting with new combinations and flavours.
