Restaurant Description

A landmark and a legend, The Alchemist & Barrister Restaurant & Pub is often called the "Cheers of Princeton."  Conveniently located in an historic building in the heart of Princeton, the "A&B" is the favorite gathering place for residents and visitors who enjoy great food, drink, and fellowship.  Students, faculty, executives, university alumni, shoppers, theatergoers, and travelers all find a warm welcome from our friendly staff and loyal patrons.

     Memories are made and friendships formed, in our two cozy dining rooms, traditional pub and the spacious patio area that's open year 'round.  When the sun goes down, the A&B lights up – with live music on Thursday nights from 10:00 pm - 1:00 am and on Sunday from 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm, featuring talented local bands. On Wednesdays, it’s Open Mic Night 10:00PM - 1:00AM.

     The Alchemist & Barrister is the perfect place to celebrate an occasion, entertain corporate clients, and to meet interesting people from around the town and around the world.

Bar None 

     The A&B’s popular pub offers eight domestic and imported beers on tap and the talented mixologists behind the bar can create everything from colorful specialty cocktails to a memorable martini. There’s a well-chosen and well-priced wine list by the bottle and by the glass. On Monday night, all wines by the bottle are half price.

International Fare

     Executive Chef Arthur Kukoda’s innovative international menu spans American, Italian, Mexican, Irish and Asian dishes.  Enjoy a great dinner, hearty sandwich or bar snack. The A&B’s burgers, including the succulent Kobe Burger, are acknowledged as the best in town – or maybe on the planet.  The A&B also offers a late lunch and dinner menu as well as a lavish a la carte Sunday Brunch.
