Cool spot

Never been before the other night, but went to go see a friend of a friend play. Pretty good venue in terms of space and sound. Beer wasn't too expensive either.

The London Souls (2/2) at the Mercury Lounge

The London Souls rolled into the Lower East Side, Tuesday night, for the second show of their three week residency at the Mercury Lounge. One of NYC’s Austin, TX-esque venues, with bar in the front and stage in the back, the Mercury Lounge is the perfect place (in Manhattan) to experience music in its most raw, underground form. Even with lights low, the room, said to hold 250 people, provided a perfect view of the s... view more

Ive never been a fan

Ive never been a fan. Its pretty touristy and a bit sterile. They really dont book good local bands. Its more just for out of town 1990's sounding alt-indie from mid-sized labels who use expensive booking agents and pr. It is not a down-home nyc rocknroll place. Mercury is part of an exclusive loop of clubs including Bowery Ballroom and similar operators.\r \r If you want to see what is really happening in the ny u... view more

Space and Music is excellent

This is an awesome place. Saw Sleater-Kinney here last year and just awesome. It's clean and I like the set-up, bar in front, and behind plush curtains an ample floor to watch shows.

one of the best places to see music

this place is awesome =---great bar, great sound and they also attract many top acts that are playing . i saw ALO here and it was kicking! this place is a classic place...the Replacements and everyone else has played here--very small---i like that

Best small venue in NYC

Mercury books the best small acts in the city, hands down. The sound is fantastic for a small venue, and the showgoers typically friendly. Though the bar staff is slow-moving and seemingly disinterested in their work, and the strict door keeps the venue below capacity at all times, overall, it's definetly worth a visit. Keep in mind that tickets for more popular acts usually sell out, and unless you're in line at ... view more

great live venue

ive only been there twice, but i was very happy in both my visits there. most recently was to see auf der maur perform. with things like that, helps to get there early. you can meet the band, as we did, and beat the lines. the record label people usually come just before showtime, so getting there early gets you a good spot. the sound quality is great. not overpowering like other similar sized venues. i dont really d... view more

great music, lousy bar.

one of the most consistent places to see better than average live music, but that's about it's only strength. the bar area is incredibly narrow and constantly clogged in a battle between those standing at the bar (or against the wall) drinking, and those going from the door to the live room.. acoustically, the space sounds great, and it's a big stepping stone for bands-about-to-be so you can catch some great acts bef... view more

Great

The Mercury Lounge is a good place to see a concert. Either you sit along the sides or grab a seat at the bar, which you can hear the music rather well.
