Can't go wrong in Merchant City when you are looking for a good place to eat, drink and be merry! Love it, specially Boudoir Wine Bar and Metropolitan.

This was a great location for our flat. It has some really top rated restaurants and is close to the city centre and various modes of transportation.

This is a nice place to wonder around and get lost in, especially if it is a great day. Find yourself one of its good eateries, order a drink and food and relax.

Staff from our hotel led us here, the service and food were okay but the place was hard to find. However it was worth the trip.

Great place to go if you're looking for chic modern places to drink. The social seemed like a great wee place but we had to leave due to a horrible smell. Apparently a few people have said the same. Lets the bar down.
