We came to see Corrine Bailey Rae and loved this venue. Small and intimate with the sound level the best I have heard at a club. It's SRO, but we got in line early and snagged a seat on the bench on the side. During...More

Whenever I am in NYC I am always attending a show at the Mercury Lounge. It's a small venue so you have the chance to meet with the musicians. I have always really enjoyed the musicians I picked. I can only highly recommend this place!

Was here to shoot some pictures of a concert. Stayed on after for some bands and to have a beer or two. Some good local brews on tap amd the atmosphere was buzzing with good music and a young trendy crowd.

The Mercury Lounge is one of the best venues to see up and coming bands, or bands who are already well known elsewhere, but not in NYC. The stage is low but wide enough where everyone can actually see what's going on. The band has...More

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...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.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
