    Shows are almost always behind schedule. Do a walk-by of the chalkboard and kill time at a nearby bar until your show starts.

    Save on ticketing fees by visiting the box office here Tuesday thru Saturday, 12-6. Cash only though.

    Live music? Check. DJs? Check. Full bar? DUH. Mercury Lounge is a guaranteed good time, as it transforms effortlessly day in and evening out from live music lounge to dance party.

    This near-legendary venue has hosted some of the biggest names before they got big: The Strokes, Sam Smith, Leon Bridges. A nice, intimate place to catch incredible music, perhaps the next big thing.

    I've been here a couple of times to see some indie bands. I like the intimacy of the place. You can get a great view no matter where you stand. A good place if you like to experience bands up close.

    They don't have "tickets," so it's best to grab online - and be sure to get your hand stamped if you plan to step outside.

    Nice little venue. Beers are 8 bucks, but it's a clean place and fun crowd.

    Longstanding and still awesome! Great bar area and simply no bad standing room anywhere inside. Check out drink specials. You can't go wrong here <3

    Small music venue, really intimate crowd. Be ready for sound tech issues and crappy lighting, this is not your standard venue.

    Set times listed are always a dirty, dirty lie. Come 45 minutes later than you're planning on coming.

    There are couches along the side all the way up to the stage. The minibar makes getting a drink very convenient.

    As you get off the F train go to the 1st Avenue Exit end of the platform and then exit the station at the Houston and Allen exit - it's a 3min walk along Houston - very easy.

    Great venue - really good sound and small enough to see your favs up close. If a band you might like is playing there, grab a ticket it'll be worth it...

    Very intimate venue and one where many acts get their start. Often 2 shows a night, and the separate rooms make it easy(ish) to get drinks in the outside room and go back and watch inside.

    One of my favorite music venues in any of the boroughs. Small audience area keeps concerts intimate. Downside is you need to jump on tickets when bigger names come through, but it is well worth.

    One of the better venues in the city. Order a beer (drinks are pricey) in the back from the girl in the corner by the door, that we you don't miss a single note of the show.

    If the bar is crowded just keep on moving forward! There’s another in the main room.

    Don't stop just inside the door -- everyone does, but it's actually less crowded up front if you can make it through the mob blocking the door.

    When the front bar is packed you can order from the tiny bar in the main room. Sometimes it's faster.

    If a NYC-based band makes it big it's not without playing Mercury Lounge first. Come here any night of the week and you might hear the next Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes or The National.
