the_mercury is a community where members of Seattle's Mercury night club can find updated event information, playlists, post questions, make music requests, etc.

Mercury @ MachineWerks is a private club for members and their guests.

There is some confusion about a few of our standard policies and procedures. Hopefully this will clear some things up.

The Entry Process:

Current members get in free before 10pm on membership nights. You should have your membership card and state issued id ready to show at the front desk when you come in. After 10pm there is a $5.00 cover for members. Guests must pay $5.00 at all times. Members must sign guests in at the front desk. Guests receive a stamp at the front door, members coming in before 10pm must get a stamp at the bar. You must get a stamp before leaving if you are planning on returning. Otherwise, you will be charged a re-entry fee (see the sign by the front door).*


Members are allowed up to 3 guests per night. Dress code is in effect on membership nights. For the comfort of your guests, make sure they know about the dress code (Dress code rules are posted at the front desk, but basic black should get you by just fine). Those not adhering to the dress code may have to pay increased cover or be denied entry for the evening. Members are responsible for their guests' behaviour. Please make sure your guests are aware of that before you bring them in.

Memberships and Club Courtesy:

To get membership, guests must be reccommended for membership by current members. We require at least three to five visits before extending an invitation to membership. The membership application fee is $10.00. Upon approval, new members will receive their membership cards within 8-12 weeks.

If you work at one of the businesses receiving club courtesy from us, you must first purchase a membership before you are eligible for courtesy.

Okay-so those were "the rules" (which, btw, have not really changed since Machinewerks days). Now here are some things that we'd like you to do because you love us:

We try to make things nice for you guys, we'd like you to return the favor. If there's a spill or something gets broken, please let someone at the bar know so we can take care of it. Same goes for messes in the rest rooms, running out of paper products, soap, etc. (you get the idea).

Please do not congregate in the hallway by the coat check area. It's a fire hazzard.

When you see/hear the barback taking out glass/recycling GET OUT OF THE WAY!

Tip the staff. We are all volunteers (yes it's true). We do this because we want you to have a safe place to have fun.

Please respect the staff.

No arguing at 2-hand it over. It's the law.

DO NOT drink and drive. We want to see you again. If you need us to, we'll call you a cab.
