Mercury Lounge

Mercury Lounge is known as Tulsa’s premiere original live music venue at 18th and Boston. Open 365 days a year from 2PM-2AM, Mercury Lounge is the nicest dive bar around; with a covered drinking patio, a fireplace, a pool table and an old-school juke box to listen to when you’re not experiencing your new favorite band on their stage.

Open since 2005, Mercury Lounge is actually a converted gas station that ​is known as “all things to all people”​. In 2017, they decided to make the step to become a smokefree venue. Owner Ethan says ​”After having chronically ill employees and losing acts that couldn’t tolerate the smoke, we felt it was imperative for us to provide the safest workplace possible for our bar staff and musicians.”

Mercury Lounge has won “Absolute Best of Tulsa” awards for Tulsa’s “Best New Bar,” “Best Bar at 18th and Boston,” “Best Dive Bar,” “Cheapest Drinks,” “Best Original Music Venue,” “Best Small Music Venue,” with the “Best Bartender” and “Best Happy Hour”. It doesn’t get much better than that! Their “Best Happy Hour” is daily from 2PM-7PM and consists of $1.50 PBR ($6.50 a bucket) and $1.75 Miller Light/Miller High Life/Coors/Coors Light ($7.50 bucket). During regular hours you’ll find $5 Beer/Shot Combo, low priced domestic and fine import beers, and a full bar of the finest liquors, as well as a rotating selection of draft beers including local and regional favorites
