The Bar

The Bar at The Merchant Hotel is our classic, multi award-winning cocktail bar. This beautiful room has many wonderful original architectural features. Antique Baccarat chandeliers and a stunning antique fire complement the design. A cocktail list of biblical proportions ensures that the diverse tastes of all cocktail connoisseurs will be met! Furthermore, the refined simplicity of the food menu provides a relaxed yet elegant alternative to the fine dining experience in The Great Room Restaurant. We are proud to state that The Bar at The Merchant Hotel is officially the 'World’s Best Hotel Bar'. The Merchant Hotel was presented this prestigious award and two others ('World's Best Cocktail Menu' and 'World's Best Drinks Selection') at the world famous and internationally acclaimed Spirit Awards, as part of the 'Tales of the Cocktail Festival' in New Orleans. The Merchant was the only European venue to achieve any awards at this prestigious event.
