Mercury Lounge - This building once housed servants to the Astor Mansion and from 1933 to 1993, the storefront housed a seller of tombstones. Vestiges of the monument store include the large, foot-square, wooden beams, on which the monuments sat and were displayed, used in the construction of the Mercury Lounge's storefront window. And there is a tombstone embedded in an end of the bar's countertop.
Now, the building is the Mercury Lounge. The primary goal of the venue is quite simple: to build the best sounding room possible and book it well, and to provide all musicians who come through the room with quality production.
This is a great venue to see a show.
