Party Earth subMercer Review

The Scene

Reached via a freight elevator and a winding basement corridor beneath the Mercer Hotel, subMercer is an intimate Andre Balasz speakeasy that attracts an exclusive clientele of chic scenesters.

Reached via a freight elevator and a winding basement corridor beneath the Mercer Hotel, subMercer is an intimate Andre Balazs speakeasy that attracts an exclusive clientele of chic scenesters.

Once inside, the slick and polished artistic patrons lounge on studded red leather banquettes or mingle at the sparkly black bar by the arched colonnades, as LED lights from the chandelier reflect on the gilded mirrored walls to create a futuristic vibe not unlike Tron.

When not guzzling pricey Makers on the rocks, the wealthy and wasted hipsters fill every available space to dance to the edgy remixes of classic disco, hip-hop, house, and rock and roll spun by downtown DJs.

A high-energy den of debauchery for both sophisticated hip shakers and cocktail connoisseurs, subMercer provides an all-night party where – thanks to the bar’s location in the distant depths of the hotel – patrons can get away with just about anything.

Tip from Adriana:

Circumvent the line and the crowds by entering subMercer through Mercer Kitchen. They share a bathroom, so it’s easy to just glide on over!

  • Crowd

    Scenesters, chic out-of-towners, sophisticated finance types, socialites, wealthy hipsters, and fashion and art types, mostly late 20s to early 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Well-known and underground DJs spin everything from hip-hop and rock to disco and house music.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    None at the bar, but Mercer Kitchen is upstairs in the hotel and offers a Jean-Georges Vongerichten menu of American fare, including steaks, Niman Ranch pork chops, and a raw seafood bar.

  • Prices

    Beer $8+, wine $10+, cocktails $14+, mixed drinks $12+, shots $11+, table service minimum $500.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Cutting-edge chic: slacks, jackets, and dresses right off the racks of Barneys and Bergdorfs.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Wednesdays and Thursdays for the hipster DJ sets and fashion-savvy partygoers and Fridays and Saturdays for bigger crowds.

  • Close By

    Lani Kai (525 Broome Street), a cocktail lounge with a contemporary take on the classic tiki theme, is great for fruity but potent drinks before heading to subMercer.
