The DJ yesterday - feb 27th - was simply: AWESOME. So unfortunate that everything shutdown at 2. Wish that this night could have lasted until dawn. Next time I need to boogie I'll drop there again for sure!

Stopped by here on a Monday night by accident and what an amazing suprise. They have one of the best jazz like singing I have ever heard every Monday night. $7 martini are really good as well.

Located in a loft on the Byward Market, the Mercury Lounge offers great music and ambiance if you need to dance and party the night away. Caters to Lounge and upbeat music lovers with great DJs.
