The Bar

Welcome to Mercury

Mercury is a contemporary mid-century cocktail lounge, serving late-night food with an extensive selection of wine. We sometimes play 80s yacht rock.

Clinebell ice machine

Our Clinebell ice machine uses single-direction freezing to produce flawless 300-lb. blocks of ice. By only freezing from the bottom and using a pump to circulate the water as it freezes, all of the air and impurities in the water are left out of the ice. This results in a 10” x 20” x 40” block you can read through. We then take that block, hit it with a chainsaw, and hand-carve every large ice cubes that come in any of our drinks on the rocks.

This ice is peerless, and this is the only Clinebell between Denver and Minneapolis.
