Pretty sweet fire show.

Merkaba is a great way to start the evening with a little class, I say start as it is rather pricy, but worth while staying for a few. The "My Tiki" cocktail is the best in my... read more

My brother had visited the cocktail bar on Friday evening meeting a friend and the following night suggested we should go there as the cocktails were good. The following night myself and another brother were in town and thought we would pay it a visit on his recommendation. As this was our first stop at 8:30pm we had not had... More

This is such a lovely bar to come to no matter what the occasion. It is a very suave bar and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. The seating is spacious and the staff are very helpful and not pushy like they are in some bars asking if you want drinks every 15 minutes. Anyone can come into the bar... More

Merkaba is a great way to start the evening with a little class, I say start as it is rather pricy, but worth while staying for a few. The "My Tiki" cocktail is the best in my opinion, as it comes with a pretty sweet fire show on the bar, where the barman/barmaid sets fire to the cocktail and surrounding... More

We booked the cocktail masterclass for my friend's hen party and it was really very good! We learned a lot, we drank a lot, we each got to make our own drink. We tasted the individual spirits that went into the drink as well as the drink itself. Free nibbles were provided too. Everyone had so much fun - would... More

I booked the Cocktail Masterclass for my friend's hen do and we all had such fun. Thank you to Dragon, our cocktail connoisseur! He was incredibly knowledgeable, explaining the background of each drink in detail but in a fun and entertaining way. (He even put up with the 14 of us talking over him from time to time!)

We booked a table for 10 people at Merkaba for last Saturday night at a cost of £30. We arrived with 3 extra people, which was happy and exciting for us but apparently a disaster for the waitress at Merkaba. She immediately expressed her frustrations with this and needed to speak to her manager about it. Fifteen minutes later and... More
