Our wedding experience at the Mercury Café was outstanding. We loved the fact were able to hold our ceremony, reception meal, and dance in their gorgeous and eclectic ballroom. We considered other venues before we found out that the Mercury was a popular wedding venue. I’d been to dance events in their ballroom, and immediately I knew that it was the perfect venue for our wedding.
Once we met with Marilyn we began to discover what a truly great venue choice we had made. Marilyn and her staff would take care of so many responsibilities that usually fall on either expensive wedding planners or stressed-out brides. The room was already vibrantly decorated and they would set-up our pretty substantial center pieces. She invited us to do a tasting of the Mercury’s excellent food, and we fulfilled a dream of my wife’s by having a “breakfast for dinner” worthy of a wedding reception. Our guests raved about the food—especially the bacon. Our wedding photographs are so vibrant and fun, and everyone had a blast at the dance. At every turn, the Mercury exceeded our expectations, helped us stay under budget, and made it possible to have the wedding we had envisioned.
Marilyn loves hosting weddings at the Mercury, and it really shows. She is so knowledgeable and so well-connected that we were able to plan the wedding on our own without worry. Every time we needed anything—flowers, a DJ, musicians—she had a perfect connection for us. Every one she suggested provided us with an excellent service and was still very affordable. The Mercury is a center for so many artistic communities in the Denver area, and I can’t imagine any other venue being able to connect us with this amazing group of vendors and performers.
Our wedding was unique, memorable, and beautiful. Marilyn and the Mercury are among Denver’s greatest treasures, and we are so grateful we chose this spectacular ballroom as our venue.

The Mercury Café provided us with the wedding of our dreams! This is hands down the best place in Denver to celebrate a day of Love with all of your friends and family. Originally we were planning on having a "small" wedding when we picked this venue. Marilyn was amazing to work with . As our guest list got bigger and I began to panic , she assured me that the venue would be beautiful filled with anywhere from 60-300 people. She was right! We ended up with about 160 people and it was perfect. The menu was delicious, the venue is romantic and working with Marilyn throughout the wedding planning brought me back to center. I could not recommend this venue enough to anyone in Denver looking for a unique and beautiful space to throw a party.
