Welcome beautiful outlaw people who are fully vaccinated with valid papers or digital pass approved by CDC, photo ID and mask.

Given the rising COVID-19 counts and breakthrough cases in the NYC metropolitan area, Bowery Ballroom & Mercury Lounge’s policy now requires guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This policy will be in place until further notice.

Upon arrival, all guests must present a photo ID along with proof that they meet the CDC definition of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Proof of vaccination may be given in the form of a paper copy, excelsior pass, Key to NYC Pass (upon release), or digital image of a guest’s vaccines card.

In addition to the vaccination policy, New York City continues to encourage masks for all indoor gatherings, except while you are actively eating or drinking.

We will continue to monitor regulations and local cases to inform our policy and keep events as safe as possible for our fans, artists, and staff.

Mercury Lounge 217 East Houston St., New York
Please Note: Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required for entry.

God knows I love Elizabeth Cook and Outlaw Country on Sirius XM, but this is too bad. Fun fact: Herman Melville wrote a story about not being welcome in New York City at a cool venue very like Mercury Lounge. Rejected in his day as too provocative, Melville's banned tale of The Two Temples fortunately survives in manuscript. In print, "The Two Temples" may be found in The Piazza Tales and Other Prose Pieces, 1839-1860 (Northwestern University Press and The Newberry Library, 1987), edited by Harrison Hayford, Alma A. MacDougall, G. Thomas Tanselle and others, at pages 303-315. Also available in Tales, Poems, and Other Writings, edited by John Bryant (Modern Library, 2002). The Manhattan hot-spot is "Temple First." If you're shut out of Mercury Lounge tonight like me, head south to Atlanta and try the Clermont Lounge on Ponce. Temple Second!
