Undeniably one of the most cool and casual places to drink in Liverpool, The Merchant is tavern meets party palace thanks to DJs, craft beer and burgers to boot.
Decked in overhanging foliage, raw walls and rustic materials, the interiors at The Merchant may look a little disheveled, but paired with neons and wooden benches the venue itself maintains a cool, urban feel. Not enough inside? Their beer garden is a force to be reckoned with thanks to greenery, bar brick and booths for chugging through the summer months.
While most weekends are tended to by a roster of DJs at The Merchant, it's the consistently reliable food and drink that keeps people heading back for more. From hunking burgers and classic pizzas, to cocktails and craft beer, the menu is casual and accessible.
