I went there as I watched the performances at the Fete de la Musique’s Eclectic stage. The delay of the show drew me to tour the roundabouts of the bar and I was amazed at the entire colorful set-up. The space was huge enough for a small concert (preferably acoustic and other “chill” concerts) to be held. The artwork on stage was beautiful and described the aquatic ambiance of the pool bar, hence the mermaid’s image.

The pool provided an impressive view of the buildings. It was equally relaxing to either sit on the caged lounges on top of the pool, lounge chairs by the poolside and simply at the restaurant sipping some cocktails, munching some snacks, chatting with friends and when there was an event like the Fete de la Musique, watch bands perform.

The food and drinks were promising despite the budget spent on them. The salted egg chips were as delicious as I expected and sipping a glass of Mermaid tears cocktail drink felt like an unexpected comeback, given that I have not drunk cocktails for a long time.

I would definitely consider Mermaid as a comeback place. I would also recommend it for my family, friends and loved ones, as well as for typical bar hoppers yearning for a place to chill.
Mermaid is located at the 2nd floor by the pool. It usually opens at the evening from Monday to Thursday, and the whole day on Friday and weekends.
