A hidden gem


Hidden amidst city high rises, one must be in the know to find this gem. No signage. No indication of what is happening beyond the door handle. Enter with a walk down a long, dark leather walled corridor and ultimately through a veiling curtain. Heads turn to welcome the newcomer to the party in what feels like a family living room styled as if set in an Adirondack Lodge. With its warm, inviting woods, leathers, low ceiling and signature Yosemite black and white prints from famed photographer Ansel Adams, guests immediately settle in for the night. This is a hip, timeless and classic interior that is continuously celebrated and published.


“Picture a dimly lit, upscale living room decked out with dark wood walls, leather furnishings, and cushy couches, and you’ve got a pretty accurate picture of MercBar… this swanky cocktail bar has been a nightlife staple in the Valley since the mid-1990s.”
