LiVE: REFRESHED . RESTYLED . REBRANDED of The Merchant Bar @ The Armada Hotel, Petaling Jaya.

The Merchant Bar 
The Armada Hotel,
Petaling Jaya

Armada Hotel presents to you the All- New refreshed, restyled and rebranded of THE MERCHANT BAR! Before it undergone this major make over, it was known as 'Merchant Pub' which some of you might know it. 

Now, restyled and rebranded to The Merchant, the bar offers a
swanky comfort akin to a hybrid of cosmopolitan New York bar and an updated London gentlemen's
club. Exuding elegance and style, The Merchant is well designed with a stunning long illuminated
copper and wood bar that immediately commands full attention.

The Balcony 

Different spaces are created catering to the various guests' preferences. One such addition is 'The
Balcony' an outdoor seating space with curious views overlooking the busy Federal Highway and
the PJ skyline.

The Merchant serves up an enormous range of whiskies in addition to a full range of other liquors
such as beer, brandy, gin, vodka and wine. The bar also offers an extensive menu of main courses
and light bites to delight palates of all kind.

Another feature of the bar is the illuminated long and high Onyx Table and barstools perfect to cater
to large groups, communal tastings or wine dinner events. Different types of high seating
arrangements can also be found at the “Beer Barrel” and “Chess” tables.

For those with a more sophisticated preference, a Cigar Lounge, where retro glamour meets
contemporary style is chic yet relaxed. Enjoy the company of friends over a nightcap and fine cigar
while listening to the soft sounds of smooth jazz and seductive lounge music.

A dedicated games area with bricked walls offers up a more rustic atmosphere. Here, guests can
enjoy a game of pool or score a bullseye on the Electronic Darts Machines.

The Merchant makes for a perfect pre-dinner venue, a meeting place for after work drinks or work off the excess partying at the adjoining The Merchant Live, and end with an indulgent nightcap back at The Merchant.

The Merchant Live is The Armada Hotel's brand new entertainment venue
which aims to up the ante on live entertainment. The All-New Merchant Live has 3 private suite (Red, Gold, Silver respectively) which cater for 30 pax! Here guests can revel in plush and roomy comfort, and sing their heart out while entertaining in style and privacy.

Here's some sneak peek for you of the place,

Those taking time out for their vocal cords, a Phoenix Darts

Machine lay await in each suite with the biggest suite even having it’s very own British Pool Table. Afterall, a little healthy competition may be fun too! 

The Stage

Early evenings on every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday at The Merchant Live will see retro classics and one hit wonders from the 80’s and
90’s pumping out all night long. The live band then takes over performing a diverse mélange of the
hottest music mixing and blending, contrasting and highlighting the different genres of music weaving a web of music that entrances the crowd to groove along.

There will be different bands performing on the respective three different days. For more information, please contact The Merchant on the performing bands of respective days.
