The Merchant House, Bahrain offers afternoon tea, Friday brunch

With the winter and cooler temperatures approaching, the rooftop terrace at The Merchant House, Bahrain is the perfect destination to relax and unwind with the launch of a Friday Brunch and a traditional Afternoon T.

The Afternoon T is inspired by the tradition of the English afternoon tea and borrows some of Gordon Campbell Gray’s grandmother’s traditional recipes such as the thinly sliced mini sandwiches and freshly baked scones served with homemade strawberry preserve and clotted cream. The Afternoon T also draws influences from the silk route history of Bahrain as a trading hub connecting East to West and so features spices and flavours of the region such as fresh ginger, fruits, dates and nuts. The Afternoon T will be served in The Library, a beautiful, elegant space with a modern classic atmosphere.  The Afternoon T will be available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2.00pm to 5.30pm.

Indigo Rooftop Restaurant offers a distinctive ambience for a refreshingly different Friday Brunch on its beautiful rooftop garden terrace.  The much-acclaimed chef Robert Shipman has created an exciting menu, pairing interesting flavours and ingredients that are authentic to both Mediterranean and Asian cuisines such as Poached Eggs served with Salsa Verde and Grilled Halloumi to Salmon Avocado Roll and Seabass Sashimi. The brunch also features signature mocktails and beverages, all served at the table.

The hotel made its debut in February this year and has already scooped two coveted awards including the Boutique Hotel of the Year at the Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2019 by Hotel & Catering News Middle East, and the Luxury Boutique Hotel of the Year at the LTG Africa and Middle East Awards. The Merchant House is also a part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. - TradeArabia News Service
