This bar is disgusting. Dirty bathrooms, rude staff, dark and gloomy bar, it smells awful and full of trashy people\r

One of the best bars in the Murray Hill area to come to hang out and watch the fall football games. They have a friendly staff that's very knowledgable about the large selection of beers on draft that they offer. Awesome burgers and wings too. BuywithmeNYC has a great deal going on right now where you can get 30$ of food/drinks for only 15$ (can't passs that up!) check it out here: http://bit.ly/bbEsHj

Went here for the college football games while I was in town. Great set up for football games, especially if you play fantasy football. Nice location in Murray Hill. I enjoyed my experience and I can't wait to come there on Sunday to watch my Detroit Lions. From what I saw, it looks like they have good food and I can't wait to try their wings.

Hi
I've been going to Mercury Bar for over 4 years now every other weekend or so and I've never seen a better security guard then Henry Hemmans. He's sweet, kind and not rude about doing his job. He checks my ID, always has a smile on his face asks hwo my day is. It's wonderful to have a security guard like that I've been to many places that they dont even check ur ID properly or just are rude about it. Once i had lost an earring in the seatin areas at the bar and Henry happened to pass along and i askd him to help me. He had his flashlight and he helped me look under the table with me. Not all guards are like that. Mercury bar is an awesome bar, but its even better when u have great employees like Henry Hemmans.
Thank you for your time

Beyond being an awesomely spacious and decked out sports bar the Mercury Bar has that luxury, loungy vibe too that's hard to find on the wooden bar stool of a local pub. The Mercury Bar has the most insane flat-screens and killer surround sound outside an imax. The food is great, the drinks are perfect and the price is even better. I love the Mercury Bar.

I spent a lot of time here during football season. What a great place to watch games. The food is way better than most bar food and the atmosphere rocks. You can also get a buzz on for cheap which I love. Definitely try this place to watch a game or just to party.

I love coming here! Mercury Bar is a great spot for a work gathering or ladies night out. The staff is super fun and will go out of their way to make you happy. Not to mention they are easy on the eyes ;-)

And can I say, the food is amazing! The menu is not just your average pub fare. Super fresh and well thought out!

Thanks Mercury Bar!

I had my birthday celebration at Mercury Bar last Saturday night. Our 25 guests arrived at 10pm and were greated with grace and courtesy. As discussed with Amanda we had two large tables in the back reserved for us. There is not need for bottle service you pay as you go. The music at 10pm is more 80's and 90's and you have the entire back lounge to yourself. then at around midnight it starts getting crowded and the music picks up to the energy. I would like to thank the staff and Amanda for making our night so memorable. We danced all night long. . . I would highly recommend Mercury Bar for any fun night with friends.

I just wanted to say how much I love this place. I have been here in the past but they really saved me last weekend. I had friends in town (guys and girls) and knew that they would love this place. Everyone was super cool and as usual there was a great crowd (especially the cute guy bartenders, wink, wink!)

This bar may not look that fancy, but don't judge a book by its cover. This is a great place to go for lunch, happy hour, or for sporting events. They have great specials for all three. Not only that but the staff is awesome. You will have a lot of fun at this place and meet some great people.

i've been here a few times before, and its full of people who just got out of college and have money to spend on expensive, watered down drinks...the people are all the same, typical midtown crowd. the bartenders are ok, but you'll barely taste the alcohol in your drink. all in all, typical place, nothing really special about it, and it has a definite meat market feel. i've never had a really good time here.

Mercury Bar is an ok bar. It has pretty good music that will keep you dancing for hours. The drinks are average NYC prices. It gets pretty crowded though and I find the crowd to get a little aggressive.

A friend of mine took me to this place recently and while it was certainly not my favorite, it wasn't horrible either. We were able to get our drinks pretty quickly but the food took a while and we only ordered the sampler appetizer. Despite the average service, the food and drink was a bit better than I expected. It's also a good place to watch a sporting event as the place has plenty of TVs throughout. The crowd/atmosphere was nothing special.

I don't like people that review places and complain about the crowd not being "cool" enough for them. This is a neighborhood sports bar, not Bungalow. I think this place is great for what it is- everyone is friendly, the music is actually pretty good late night, drinks are moderately priced. My only complaint is the cups- they need real glass for the beer! They give you plastic glasses, not a big fan of those. Aside from that its a great place to hang out, watch a game, or spend a low-key night of getting drunk. The food is good too for lunch or for bar snacks

I never care enough to write reviews, but I signed up specifically to praise Mercury Bar. I love this place! The atmosphere and DJs are great!! The pleasant bouncers (quite rare) and definitely diverse and good looking barhoppers who frequent this place make it our usual late night dance spot. This place IS good for dancing, you might have to show up a bit later after hitting up Tonic or other places in the neighborhood, but dancing is consistently fun here.

We went for my friend's birthday recently and the night was going well and the waitress was quick and they even brought out a cake. But the night was ruined when the bartender gave everyone a hard time getting drinks! He would pretend you didn't exist and when you finally get an order in he would act like you're wasting his time. Listen, our dollars pay his rent so he needs to get over himself. My entire party disliked him and with all the bars in New York, we don't need to come back to that.

I used to go to mercury bar over the summer and was almost always disappointed with the rude service, it sucked!!! Anyway, I just moved back into the neighbourhood 2 weeks ago and was reluctantly meeting friends there last Wed to eat. I went back Thurs, sat and sunday! Each time the food was good and friendly prompt service was refreshing.(not easily found, especially on superbowl Sunday) The crowd was mixed and we liked the good vibe without the attitude! Im glad its only around the corner now! Will be back there soon for sure.

The place seems to be going downhill. I used to come here a lot and love it, but recently it seems so dissorganized! Every time I go, there's different bartenders, bouncers, and waitresses. The only reason my friends and I still go there once in a while is to see Jess. She's a blast and actually knows what she's doing...and is very easy on the eyes!

The food is only worth it if you go for the lunch speacial and the drinks are overpriced. This typical midtown bar is stuffed to the rafters with a yuppy crowd better left alone. I'd recommend jumping in acab and finding a new place.

Lunch specials are decent, but the staff tends to be a little on the rude side.

Regular college bar... very similar to Joshua Tree but with hip/hop/pop/rap music instead of 80's. Food is the same. Prices are the same. Service is the same. The same people just move from one bar to the other.

Everytime we go to Mercury Bar we are always really happy with the service, from all the staff.
They have a really good happy hour, & the last night we were there they were doin 2 for 1 shots and loads of beer specials! I'd reccommend the nachos, its a really generous serving, even though we were full we couldn't resist our burger, 1 of the biggest burgers around! I'm not sure what it is like late on the weekends but i know its where me an my friends will be spending the football season!!

Mercury Bar has two locations in Manhattan, East and West side. Both are great college-type bars for a drink. Food is standard bar fare, nothing special.

What is special is their lobster special. $12.95 for a 1.5-pound lobster with corn, fries, the works. If you feel like having another lobster, it's only $6.95. The lobster is quite fresh and simply boiled with melted butter. Great meal. Offered on Mondays all night.

We went to Mercury Bar for a birthday dinner and were happy with the atmosphere which is what drew us back in the first place. The food and drinks were excellent and the proces reasonable for NYC. The only thing we were not happy with was the servvice. We were basically the only ones there (between football and the drinking crowd) and we had to ask to be waited on. Later, when the bar scene people arrived the waitress became rude. It was great they could accomodate a group (on time) the service was lacking though (except for the busboy).

If you know how to party. . . then you know the type of bar you are in the mood for. Mercury bar is your favorite college hangout- if you go there on a Thursday it is going to be a happy hour crowd that will end up staying till 2- on Fridays and Saturdays this place is packed- the music is great there is always songs that you are dying to dance to-if you are in the right mood you are always going to find cool people to party with. Sundays its the best place to watch the games! The food is great, nachos are amazing. The staff is so great- and not for nothing the bartenders provide great eye candy- especially Benny. I highly recommend Merc Bar if you are in the mood for a low key night when you are guaranteed to have a good time.

I frequent this place a lot, and usually have a great time any day of the week I go Mon-Sat. Before or during a major sports event it will get too crowded though for my liking. If you want a chance to get set for the night with a great seat at the bar (to check out the cute bartenders(who are hot and know it) or to watch the game or grab a table for food then get there a little early like 11ish.

You can dance if you want music is good (though yes, most people choose to watch you dance instead). Guys are plenty and fun to talk to, who cares if they're not the brightest crowd. I mean you're in a bar to have fun not a pick up a husband, right?

The Mercury Bar is the worst bar I have ever been to in my life. The atmosphere is terrible. You have to send up a flare if you actually want a bartender to serve you watered down mixed drink, dirty tap draft beer, or a boone's farm quality glass of wine. The patronage also leaves alot to be desired. The crowd is a mix of Paris Hilton wannabes except their Louis Vuitton handbags are fake, and an overly obnoxious breed of just graduated college frat boy/men. I have never tried their food due to the fact that I had forgotten my flare gun at home and could not get a waitress without it. NYC is filled with great little hang outs. This is not one of them.

This is the best bar in NYC. You'll always have a good time whether it's for happy hours, watching a game, hanging out with friends, meeting people, a place to start before the clubs or a night at merc. The crowd is mixed, the girls are hot. The place gets packed on weekends and for those who say its too crowded, you dont want to walk into a place that has 20 people, you want a lot of people to be there. The bartenders are the best in the city, the waitress' are beautiful, and management is great. They have good food and drink specials and if you like seafood they have a great lobster special.

The place gets packed on weekends and for those who say its too crowded, you dont want to walk into a place that has 20 people, you want a lot of people to be there. The bartenders are the best in the city, the waitress' are beautiful, and management is great. They have good food and drink specials and if you like seafood they have a great lobster special.

.

Well where to start. The crowd is definatley not my cup if tea. Too young, too rowdy. The music is off the hook. The d.j. spins great beats that make you want to dance all night long. The problem is that no one dances. And if they did there would not be any room. The only good ..hhmmm great thing about this place are the bartenders, management is doing a great job hiring the hotties. They sure know how to keep the girls coming back!

Mercury isn't that great. Talk about cookie cutter model. Where am I again? Fridays? Espn Zone? The atmosphere is ok but the food leaves something to be desired. Check around and you might find something a little better. This place could have potential though.

Pros: drinks, clean

Cons: , small

This is a frat bar, pure and simple, and if you are in the mood to get gawked at, but have no substantial conversation, with twenty-somethings, then this is your place. If, however, if you wish to meet someone with more intellect than a character on "South Park," then I would suggest heading elsewhere. The music is so loud that it is impossible to even hear the person next to you speaking, and the drinks are way overpriced for the quality you are served.

Pros: Location, Sports on TVs

Cons: Noise, Cost, Crowd

For some reason, Mercury bar seems to be the Irish haven of Murray Hill. Everytime I've been, Irish guys abound. People are friendly enough but bartenders can get a little snippy. When the jukebox reigns control, prepare for lots of Bon Jovi

Pros: affordable drinks, no cover

bad layout upfront, but what are you going to do/ At first glance, crowd looked attractive enough (concur on the B&T presence), but on second glance, all of the guys looked to be about 18! The hottest guy there was the bartender....but he wasn't so very friendly. Don't have to fight too hard to get drinks, but drinks mediocre when you get them. I guess that's the best you get for $6/drink in NY?

P.S. NO ONE danced.

I went to the Mercury Bar on a Friday night. It is a long narrow bar in the front room and then the back room opens up into a wider space. There was no cover to get in. The place was very crowded. It was a nice looking crowd. However, on Friday night this place had a young crowd. Most people appeared to be around 23.

I love this place, my friends tell me I need to venture to new places, but why when Merc is so dependable and reliable. It's just a good place to start off the night or end up there if you are having a bad time somewhere else. Plus the bartenders make it so much fun!
