On Saturday 4th July, basement bar Mother Mercy reopened its doors once again welcoming canny fold and cocktail enthusiasts alike, back after a long period of isolation.
The ‘Twist of Fate’ cocktail generating machine will be a brand new experience for regulars and newcomers to enjoy. Each guest gets two spins and the machine is filled with the names of modern classic cocktails and a mix of prizes including bar tabs, vouchers and bespoke merchandise.
Mother Mercy hopes the ‘Twist of Fate’ will invigorate the cocktail bar experience which has been sorely missed, and recreate the bartender and customer relationship away from the bar and directly to the table. Since it opened in late 2019, Mother Mercy quickly garnered attention for its creative interior design, high quality of service and creative and playful drinks. The basement bar is led by two experienced bartenders with a wealth of industry knowledge.
Neil Donachie, brand manager for Fentimans was previously senior bartender at The Savoy’s Beaufort Bar, while Luke Comer is one of the founders of Liverpool’s Present Company and the market manager of Samson & Surrey. Both bring their expertise and broad knowledge to create imaginative drinks concepts which enrich the customer experience.
