Best Cocktail Bar 2014 - DesignMyNight Awards

A stylish hangout, with a prime spot on the corner of Merchant Square, Metropolitan is a cool Merchant City bar with an exclusive vibe. The sprawling venue covers several bars and balconies as well as the indoor-with-an-outdoor-feel seating in the fairy-lit square. The crowd here are a brew of shoppers, after work heads, and a fun party bunch at weekends, while couples cosy up in the smaller bars after dinner. 

The decor in the main cocktail bar area is stylish and modern, with reams of mirrors, glass and wood. Dim lighting gives moody vibes, while cocktail shakers and smooth house tunes create the soundtrack. High ceilings, raw stonework and exposed piping add a rough element to the richer touches. The adjoining restaurant brings an air of sophistication, with sumptuous white booths in the Champagne Bar offering some seriously luxe cushioning, and the a la carte menu boasting a mouthwatering array of British and European classics. After dinner, the Piano Bar keeps the cocktails flowing, while the baby grand provides some suave sounds.

I've now been in for food, and its only o.k, but the restaurant area is lovely and looks over Merchant square, and the staff are lovely and I still love it for sentimental reasons, so it's still getting four stars.

I went here on my first date with my boyfriend and so I'm massively biased towards Metropolitan for sentimental reasons. Even when I ignore this I still think it's a fab bar. The drinks are tasty and they offer table service which is a big bonus since I'm really lazy.
