Merchant House Group opens London's smallest bar

05 March 2018

With two banging bars already under its belt, we have to say our cocktail biceps geared into action at the news The Merchant House Group has opened a third venue: The Brig.

The Brig is apparently London's smallest bar, situated on the same teeny alleyway as its flagship venue, Merchant House of Bow Lane.

What little ceiling and walls The Brig has are constructed from old whiskey casks. Guests can book an hour slot online and will receive a pin code for entry through the secret door at street level. Once below deck, guests can sip on their own bespoke cocktails and play their own music, all with their own private bartender, of course.

'The versatility of the space makes it the perfect intimate oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city, whilst the offering will reflect the premium and extensive range that Merchant House is known for,' said owner and co-founder Nate Brown.

Sounds pretty cool, right? The only kicker is the tiny bar can only squeeze in 2-4 guests...
