Located in Hells Kitchen, Mercury Bar's upscale sports bar vide is perfect for the youthful crowd that reflects the neighborhood's mixed population. The numerous high-definition screens & digitally-projected games along with cushy black-upholstered booths, and ample seating for date-nights or parties make it the perfect place for getting together. The cozy setting gets even more intimate on crowded game nights, when fans down beer specials and order from the extensive menu of appetizers (think BBQ pulled pork skins or white truffle tater tots), sandwiches (think turkey burger or crabcake sandwich) and salads, skins, wings and dips. Rowdy with standing room only on weekend and game nights, neither

I am torn between leaving 2 stars or 3. I will let the reader decide and leave it at average. Hot and steamy Saturday, we (friend and I) ended up at the Mercury Bar. We sat outside to continue enjoying the heat. No one came...out, finally about 2 minutes later I went in to see if we could get some service (Hello!) . We finally got some service, waitress was nice at first. Oh and we had to leave a card for the drinks (we ordered the drinks first). We ordered, she, the waitress, was great at explaining the dishes we wanted and options. We got our meal, my burger and fries and mojito were good. My friend's Caesar salad and bloody Mary where also good. We were not checked on during our meal, no how is everything, need anything ( I needed water), maybe another drink. Anyway, my friend lit up a cigarette (she is from out of town) and about 1 min later the waitress came out with her head spinning (sorry for the sarcasm), yelling and with a very nasty tone, telling my friend she had to turn put out her cigarette! Ok, yeah I get it, but did she have to be so nasty? And could you not have come out before that? She came out AGAIN with the same nasty demeanor 5 min later to scold my friend (who had already put her cigarette out) Guess she was paying attention to the table, just did not care to out and take care of customers. You would think after that she would come out and ask if we wanted the check...or something else....!!!! Nope, had to go inside and chase her for the check, and then she did not want to give us a printed copy of the bill because we had a tab inside. Yes we have a tab, but can I see a printed copy of the bill before I pay you? For all I know you could have put $400 on the tab for an $80 bill. Sheesh! Anyway, service is horrible, food is good.More

Lots of TV’s, great spot to watch a game (especially Penn State where they serve a special menu). The service is spotty but the bartender has a very heavy hand pouring mixed drinks so that kind of makes up for it. Mostly bar food which...you have to order if you want a drink. Little trick: order the $4 tacos to go and that counts as your food item. You can just hand it off to a homeless person on your way back home. If you are around this area and looking for a spot to hangout and down a few? This place is very niceMore

Staying at a hotel close by. 10pm on a Monday night and not ready to leave the NYC energy behind. Found this spot...lively bar, steak was perfectly prepared, wings were hearty and tasty. College football game on, bar was packed. Service not as attentive as...it could be. Mojito ok...not on par with the price. Overall very enjoyable meal.More

The Mercury Bar is a cozy Bar on 9th Avenue right next to Rudy's. Service is not great but they did have a vast Menu. After having been to Rudy's just before coming over here, we felt the drinks were not as strong and obviously...more expensive. But it is a nice cozy place to hang out on a Friday evening and watch a game with friends.More

We stumbled upon this place as we were staying at a nearby hotel we called in for food on our way to a show the service was great and really efficient! We called back in for some drinks on the way back from the show!...Great atmosphere as there was American football on plenty of screens to watch the various games on. Our server was lovely can’t remember his name just that he was Irish and from Cork originally! Very helpful and very friendlyMore

Visited at about 10:00 p.m. after a twilight cruise during the lull between dinner and bar crowd. Wanted some comfort food after a long day of travel along a mile walk to the hotel. Seated immediately at a table for two beside the front windows....Our drink order came quickly as did our appetizer. We both had burgers that, as expected for NYC are cooked to preference. I ordered rare and my companion medium. The server repeated the order. Another server delivered to say they were delivering a medium and a medium-well. We settled for what was delivered. The fresh-cut French fries were on par with the ones I make at home--excellent. Pricing for both food and drinks was a relative bargain for the general area. .More

I have visited this bar a number of times on previous visits to NYC, so I was glad to return. A lively sports bar, great atmosphere and good service. My partner and son shared the pizza and fries and I ordered the fish and chips,...four pieces of fish with the fries and dips great value for money and very tasty. Would recommend this bar to anyone who wants to enjoy sports and drink and tasty food.More

Our family chose this spot after we went to see Come from Away on Broadway! The spinach and artichoke dip, cheesy tater tots and pretzel and dip were very good and enjoyed greatly. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend

We called in for food on way back to hotel. The atmosphere was great. Chilled sports bar vibe. The member of staff that served us was friendly and chatty. I had the mercury bar burger (stella blue cheese and grilled onions). It was ace... just...what you need after a full day running around the attractions in New York. Good selection of drinks. Reasonable prices. We all left happy and full. All good.More
