Mercury Lounge
New York, NY

The Mercury Lounge is a club/music venue, in the Lower East Side section, of New York City. The structure, at 217 East Houston Street, housed the servants to the Astor Mansion, connected to it by an underground labyrinth of tunnels. Garfein's Restaurant occupied the space in the early part of the twentieth century and from 1933 to 1993 the storefront housed a seller of tombstones. In 1993, it was converted into a music venue. It has a capacity of 250 people.[

Show up late, set times are always scheduled a half an hour later than the website says they are.

This club is the make-’em-or-break-’em venue for bands on the rise. The venue’s 250-person capacity ensures that you’ll be feet from whatever artists are on stage. —Leigh Belz, features director

With past performers ranging from the Strokes to Interpol, this club is for musicians, whether they're debuting new material on stage or getting wasted on a Monday night.

You need to get to Mercury Lounge a bit early if you're expecting to get a good view. Sound is generally great and the booker does a fantastic job.

Go to the Mercury Lounge Monday through Saturday during the day, and buy paper tickets to avoid the service charge. Cash only.
