Definitely needs upgrading

I love the feel of this place,but i think they need to do an overhaul on alot of things. I'd rather be at their sister branch at the junction any day.

Good music, but too crowded at the bar. Later in the night it takes 15 to 30 minutes to get drinks. Has an outdoor and indoor area which is nice for when it gets too crowded and hot inside. Lots of tables to put your drinks on and dance around.

As frequent clientes of Mercury, we happened to be there about a month back and were refused entry due to the fact that my husband was wearing open shoes. This has never happened before as people have been seen there in casual attire. Never has there been an issue about shoes. When we enquired as to why this was now... More

Since I was at ABC Place, we did go there for a drink. The white wine was all right and the service OK. The place however is a little outdated and dark. So if you are around and thirsty, why not, but it certainly doesn't deserve the trip to get there.

We went to Mercury Lounge on the evening of Sept 23, 2014 for after dinner drinks and lived to regret ever going in. The service was terrible and when it came time to pay for our drinks the servers including the Manager tried to con us by playing tricks on us by not producing a tax receipt after we paid... More

Nice place for a drink with friends, went on a Saturday night nice tunes. Evans was great, nice fellow knows his drinks. Just a suggestion on the bar stools they are too large for the space when it's packed. The service team is good too. The Manager was friendly as well and made some recommendations to suit the celebration.Thank you... More
