Meh...they're trying to be fancy with their $14-20 drinks but I'm not impressed. I don't mind paying for a good cocktail but I don't appreciate paying that for a so-so drink.  And please don't act like you're doin me a favor by letting me in. Get some decent beer please. Raleigh has some awesome craft beers and THIS is your selection?

This place has a lot of potential.  The vibe is definitely on point, but there is an opportunity to be better with drinks and overall setting.  Some drinks were amazing and really well presented, while one or two were meh (one was sent back).  With the competition in the area for similar speakeasy vibe bars, this one wasn't on par on my visit.  Service, however, was spot on.

I made reservations to The Merchant NC in hopes of grabbing a drink with my date after our dinner at Sitti (located within walking distance to Merchant). We arrive at The Merchant NC 15 minutes earlier than our reserved time. They proceeded to seat us at 2 chairs and a small table within arms reach to the kitchen doors. I was not satisfied with the location of our seat due to foot traffic, so I asked the host can he seat us at a normal table, to which he replied 'The available tables were for other reserved guests' as if we did not have a reservation. He also recommended that we wait around to see if those guests were going to actually make it by their reserved times and if not, we could have their table. I didn't want to wait around to see if someone was going to make their reservation as we have set our own reservation for that night the day before. We left because we did not feel valued as guests and felt maybe our skin color had something to do with it. Do not recommend.
