I went there recently to see my favorite musician, Noah Gundersen, at a sold out show. It's a small place, but I never felt too crowded or uncomfortable. The sound was excellent and we were right up front! The only real downside to my visit was that the band mentioned that they were pressured to leave the venue directly after... More

Got a chance to hear a few bands at this venue. They were good bands and the lounge had good sound. The cover was reasonable and it was a cool place. Close to Katz deli and the F line of the subway. Check it out.

Great room, got to see 3 local New York bands neither of them overly grabbed me but enjoyed the experience. Would definitely go back to see more when back in NYC again

Saw a band here I didn't know of last minute with some newly minted friends. The venue isn't that large but we didn't feel claustrophobic at this show but I could imagine it getting bad at a more crowded time. Drinks are $9 for vodka soda so surprisingly expensive for this type of place. Just get beer I guess.

This is the first, and smallest, of the now ubiquitous Bowery Presents venues. Great sound system, and a really intimate space. I always make it a point to take out-of-towners here if there is a band we want to see. Tip: Order your drinks from the small 'window' inside the music space for faster service.

Visited here in 2013. We bought tickets online and went here for a concert with Half Moon Run. The place was pretty small but they had everything we needed. A lot of beer brand, a small-sized stage with gread audio-setup. Will definitely viset here again if they have a another great band playing here!

This is a small venue so if there is a band you like playing it will be a very intimate show. There is nothing special to this place it is a bar with a stage. The stage is low to the ground and you could get right on the stage. There is no back stage area so the bands walk... More

Caught a great Heavy Metal show at the Mercury Lounge, late March. Exactly what you expect from a rock club from dirty walls to nice acoustics and mean looking, kind hearted bouncers. Like catching acts at the Lounge.

Attended Craic Fest to hear Julie Feeney and other Irish musicians but wasn't wild about the venue, which is just a bar with a large open area in front of the stage. The only place to sit is along two benches on each side of the room but you won't be able to see the bands for all of the... More
