First reviewed by Hotel on Rivington
This Lower East Side institution has been launching unknown bands and housing national tours since the stone-age. Indie-rock, punk, you name it. If it rocks, then it’s Mercury.
A great intimate place to see local NYC bands and underground nationally touring bands. Since the space is small and standing room only, there are no bad views. Sometimes, better known acts will show up and perform unannounced…like Amy Weinhouse.
