Mercury was a phenomenal venue. Marilyn was helpful and able to customize our day exactly as we had hoped! Our guests loved the funky and fun vibe of the venue and we were able to curate a day filled with dancing, laughter, and joy. Highly recommend!Sent on 08/18/2019

A Magical Venue!
I can’t say enough about how awesome our experience was at The Mercury Cafe. We got married in the ballroom and it looked beautiful! Marilyn helped us every step of the way and helped us throw an awesome and very affordable wedding of our dreams. She did it all - catering, flowers, set up and take down, and helped us set up an awesome swing dance lesson during our cocktail hour. She was super responsive and really went above and beyond in helping us plan the day out and making sure everything was on schedule. Our night was just perfect!Sent on 08/13/2019

Beautiful and fun reception
We had our June 2019 Reception in the ballroom at the Mercury Cafe. The party was wonderful - our guests raved about the bartender, the staff, and the food (we had the fish taco bar - highly recommend and great for all food restrictions). The staff was particularly attentive to our older relatives.Sent on 07/05/2019
The space was amazing - you don't really need a florist at all, they will cover all of the tables with flowers and they even put flowers on our cake (which was home-baked and which they let us bring in).
And they did everything we asked, we definitely didn't need a day of coordinator (which we didn't have).
It was much more affordable than most places we looked but it didn't feel budget at all - it felt magical and lavish and fun.
Also, every single piece of advice Marilyn gave us turned out to be accurate. She had done a lot of weddings and it shows.
2 notes for couples planning to use the space:
1. The Mercury only takes cash or checks and we didn't remember that we'd need to bring a check with us on the night of the reception to pay the final balance. This ended up being ok, we were able to drop one off the next day since we weren't leaving town.
2. If you're not doing a day-of coordinator (which we didn't), remember to provide instructions on any announcements you want made by the staff. We didn't really plan out the last part of the program - we knew we wanted to do dessert and then the first dance but we didn't actually set anyone up to announce it. It ended up being totally fine and I'm not sure anyone except us noticed but I wish I'd asked the Mercury staff to announce dessert and the beginning of the dancing. The staff were great as soon as we asked them to do anything so this is really more of a note for myself or future couples planning. :-)
