All right, so after one round of beers at Medley Amaii Cafe next door, we finally arrived The Merry Men bar, a drinking place by the scenic riverside. Welcome to 86 Robertson Quay, #01-02, Singapore 238245 (Tel: 6732 5057).
Another relaxed hangout with quirky furniture imported from all over the world, this place also sets out to capture and captivate the busy, tired working crowd as well as families to hang out at, over good, simple food and delicious drinks. Hence, the "merry" name.
Yes, we liked the relaxed ambience already, and friendly patrons. The long-table concept was comfortable, and allowed patrons to mingle with each other, creating a rather amicable atmosphere immediately. Great music, scenic riverviews, merrymakers crowding around smooth tables - this was a non-pretentious place to unwind for sure. No fuss, no muss, just bring your appetites to the party.
Drinks-wise, it was Blackforest Mojito for me - a delicious thirst-quencher encompassing my favorite combination of mojitos, chocolate and cherries.
Food-wise, we shared a Duck Pizza - thin, crispy slices of pizza piled deliciously with mushrooms, duck, olives and cheese. Every bite was a crispy explosion of flavors. This was truly comfort food for the work-weary souls.
