I was looking to go to a decent NYC Indie music venue on my holidays, and chose the Mercury Lounge. The Magic Numbers were playing, which coincidentally had a personal tie to our trip so it was pretty sweet. The venue is a nice size,...More

Whenever I am in NYC I am always attending a show at the Mercury Lounge. It's a small venue so you have the chance to meet with the musicians. I have always really enjoyed the musicians I picked. I can only highly recommend this place!

Was here to shoot some pictures of a concert. Stayed on after for some bands and to have a beer or two. Some good local brews on tap amd the atmosphere was buzzing with good music and a young trendy crowd.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.

to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
