Merchant House is a unique cocktail bar that pays homage to the history of the merchant trade in all its splendour. Focusing on delivering wave upon wave of premium gin and rum to thirsty city-dwellers, you'll find the venue tucked away on Bow Lane, within strolling distance of St. Paul's and Mansion House station.
Gin-lover? Well then this is absolutely the place for you, as there's over 250 bottles of the stuff to sample. Bottles come split into 'premium', 'super-premium' and 'fine and rare', with each and every tipple a celebration of the exquisite spirits, spices and sugars that have come to London throughout the course of history. Basically you're not just enjoying a bloody lovely drink, you're also celebrating the story of the merchant trade.
This is a comfy and welcoming space to enjoy a drink, too. Plush blue leather seats, subtle lighting and a striking centrepiece bar make for an intimate but buzzing atmosphere, and there's a real onus on creating a social atmosphere here. One for those with penchant for high end spirits, the experts at Merchant House also stage a number of masterclasses where you can tap into their considerable pool of knowledge while sampling some delicious drinks.
