X-ray emission is significantly detected in two Chandra observations, performed in 2005 and 2014, at a luminosity of ∼2-3 × 10<SUP>30</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP>, in the 0.5-8 keV energy range. The radio and the X-ray source positions are found consistent within 1σ error box. No detection is found in archival XMM-Newton and Swift/XRT observations, compatible with the Chandra flux level. The low statistics prevents us to assess if the X-ray source varied between the two observations. The X-ray spectrum is consistent with a power-law of photon index ∼1.5. We favour as the most probable origin of the X-ray emission an intrabinary shock scenario. We searched for optical and γ-ray counterparts to the radio source using data from Hubble Space Telescope and Fermi-LAT catalogues, respectively. No optical counterpart down to V = 25.9 and I = 24.7 (3σ) is detected, which suggests a companion mass of 0.1-0.2 M<SUB>☉</SUB>. Combined with the low X-ray luminosity, this is consistent with a black widow nature of PSR J1636-2354A. Inspecting the 8-year Fermi-LAT catalogue, we found a γ-ray source, 4FGL J1836.8-2354, with a positional uncertainty consistent with the globular cluster, but not with the radio position of the millisecond pulsar.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/29211||URL:||https://academic.oup.com/mnras/article-abstract/486/3/3992/5472917?redirectedFrom=fulltext||ISSN:||0035-8711||DOI:||10.1093/mnras/stz1100||Bibcode ADS:||2019MNRAS.486.3992A||Fulltext:||open|
