“Still the best cocktail bar in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

The merchant is unparalleled with any other bar in belfast and sets the bar extremely high. the cocktail combinations are endless and the menu itself would prove to be an inspiring novel. words cannot describe the sophistication and professional service you receive in the merchant. If you are looking to impress someone or looking to celebrate something i strongly recommend the merchant cocktail bar

“Afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

I recently came for afternoon tea to meet a few family members. What a truely lovely experience. The food was beautiful and there was so much so I was very glad when the offered to pack up the extras for us! It was expensive at £19.50 but was worth the splash to treat yourself. Just wish I lived closer as I would treat myself again very soon if I did!!!

“Jazz bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

We had a few drinks at this bar at the weekend. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere in the bar is pretty laid back and we loved the jazz. There is an outdoor area which is on the street but you are shielded by hedge rows. We will be back.

“Freindly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

The bar is a real friendly place to go a little more casual than the rest of the hotel, we had a bar meal with the staff advising us on which each dish was, the food was fantastic and the prices were very reasonable.
