Pre-Dinner Snifter

The Cocktail Bar of Belfast's Merchant Hotel is an agreeably civilised place. The plasterwork and chandeliers on the ceiling give the room a distinct air of grandeur.

I have a dinner reservation at eight o'clock, and I'm spending awhile in the bar prior to donning the feed-bag.

I whiled away an hour in the spa pool on the top floor earlier with some convivial company of other residents, including a pleasant South African  lady who lives in southern Spain.

There you go you philanderer. I take my eye off you for a moment and you are chatting up a potential Lady Belmont. TeeHee. More power to your wheel you rascal. Joey's Bar in Ballymoney has lost it's appeal.

Indeed I would. You get what you pay for, and the Merchant is a luxurious haven apart from the city; it was almost surreal sitting in the outdoor hot tub looking at the time on the Albert Clock.
