Five Points South is a delightful side of historic Birmingham offering restaurants, bars, boutiques, and most recently: a street wear retail center. Alchemy213 was created with the intention of expanding the creativity of the community. Now, this concept is bringing Alchemy to its new Five Points South location in Birmingham.

Alchemy213 is an upscale men’s store originally located in downtown Birmingham. The shop acts as a vendor of Nike, Puma, Champion and more active and street wear brands. Most recently, the Alchemy name has set up shop in Five Points South.
On July 13, the store celebrated the opening of their new doors with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. As a new addition to the Five Points South Family, the brand seeks to continue its previous vision of bettering the community.
“Our goal is to bring creative concepts, premium goods and product knowledge to every aspect we engage. Alchemy213 will serve as a platform for our generation through global exposure, philanthropic endeavors, and relationship cultivation.”—via Alchemy213
In the past

In events called “Local Mashups,” “Summertime Sundays” and “#ALCHEMYCARES,” they provide a space for creativity, change, activism and inspiration. Check out their previous events for more details!

We always tell people… Alchemy is about mixing demographics, breaking down barriers, and providing top notch goods to everyone. Our events are strategic! We’re “INTEGRATORS” at heart, and our product is carefully selected and curated in the space every time! The local mash with @birminghammountainradio and @bhamartcrawl over the last years was a platform for visual artists, and musicians to display their talent.. The Free Beer provided by great friends was to help you feel comfortable in the process of everything!!! “F.A.M. Friday’s” (Fashion Art Music) will be underway in May!! Stay Tuned for more… #FreeEventsRus 🤷♂️🤣
A platform for creatives
The store also features #APLATFORM, a literal platform for up and coming artists to share their stories. The most recent story on their blog is from Shayna Jimenez, an Alabama-based poet and creative. She poses in Nike wear and brings light to Birmingham’s talent in this post.
