The Mercury was an amazing venue for our St Patrick’s Day wedding. Marilyn is easy to work with, and knows what she is doing. I was able to just provide some basic input, and she was able to have everything exactly the way we wanted. I really appreciated that I was able to drop off decorations and cakes in the morning, and when I saw it set up (as I walked down the aisle!) everything was exactly as I had imagined it. The staff was attentive and professional both when I was dropping off in the morning during the event. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and I didn’t even have to do anything to enhance the beauty. The food was very tasty, and a good price. I got so many compliments on the food and the ambiance. I think my wedding made some new customers for the Mercury! Everything went so smoothly, and was absolutely beautiful, so I would recommend the Mercury for anyone’s wedding!

Looking for a laid back venue in the heart of Denver with no judgment or restraint on your special day, this is your place. Working with Marilyn and her staff was amazing. We searched for months to find a venue that suited our off beat Dias de los Muertos theme wedding full of wild ideas & expectations. Our wedding ceremony and reception was all held there on October 28, 2016 in there beautiful upstairs ball room with twinkle lights already strung, included ;) . It was better than I ever could have dreamt. We had a Colorado proud menu locally sourced taco bar with bison and chicken it was sooooo good. The venue was already decorated for Halloween which cut my decoration costs in half and Marilyn was a wonderful resource every step of the way. She has been doing events a long time and does so with grace and ease, taking so much pressure off the bride and groom. People are still talking about how unique and fun the wedding was. They rent the linens, provides flowers/ candles on tables, and a wonderful staff to work it. I love this place and could not be happier with our magical experience! I would recommend this venue to any one who is tired of the run around other a lot of the venues provide.

The Mercury Cafe was the absolute perfect venue for us.

Marilyn is an indispensable resource. She provided tons of guidance and advice without a single ounce of judgement when we said we weren't into some more traditional elements or even some of the things she suggested; she created a really open relationship to ensure we got the exact wedding we wanted. We told her our budget and she helped us work within our means to get what we wanted without ever pressuring us to spend more than we said we had, and reassuring us that our guests would not miss the things we could not afford or didn't want to include. She helped us craft a celebration that perfectly reflected our relationship and our values. Honestly, I feel a little emotional reflecting on the warmth and support we felt at every step of the way in our planning process with the Merc.

Marilyn and her staff at the Mercury Cafe took care of all the details, setting up our ceremony and centerpieces exactly how we wanted them, providing to-go boxes for our extra dessert, and even bringing my grandma a special plate at dinner when she couldn't differentiate between the spicy and mild sausage on the shared plate (our meal was family-style, a special request that they had no issue accommodating).

Bonus: the space itself is quirky and gorgeous...the hardwood floors, eclectic decor, and thousands of twinkle lights are magical and romantic.

I cannot speak highly enough of this venue.

My husband and I were married at The Mercury Cafe on Saturday, June 25, 2016 and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding and reception! Marilyn and her staff are exceptional human beings and helped us make our wedding simply magical. We had a large wedding with approximately 125 guests and there was more than enough room for everyone. We used the stage for the family band and we have gotten nothing but positive reviews by all of our family and guests. People are still talking about how much fun they had at the wedding saying "this was the best wedding I've ever been to!" We are very grateful to have chosen The Mercury Cafe as our wedding site. Marilyn and her staff are a blessing to the Denver Community. Thank you for making our dreams come true!

There is magic at the Mercury Cafe. You feel it the moment you walk in, from the friendly faces of the staff members, and of course, Marilyn. From our very first meeting she put us at ease. She helped us to make logistical decisions, offered linen options, and she even offered to make the cake in house, which we agreed to. We collaborated on the menu together and WOW, I knew the food there was amazing but that night the food and the cake was just so special in a way I cannot put into words. I truly feel it was all made with love and blessings. She let us use the upstairs ballroom which is just gorgeous, talk about ambiance. We brought our own DJ who used the sound system already in place which is really great. I just cannot say enough about Marilyn's generosity. We planned an outdoor park wedding and she even offered to let us get married in the ballroom in the case of inclement weather for free. You cannot go anywhere else in Denver and have this quality of an experience and quality of food for the price. She is just an amazing person and really wants to work with you to make your day/evening special.

My Wedding Day was simply magical and Marilyn at Mercury Cafe made it happen! We had a large wedding (over 200 people) and a small budget. Marilyn made it work, giving us lots of ideas and suggestions to make it perfect without breaking the bank. The brunch food we had was AMAZING! Everyone raved about the local, organic breakfast meats and egg quiche. They also made our cake, which was delicious and beautiful. Seating, parking, linens...all those little things that can add stress to your planning, all done by The Mercury and their wonderful staff. We had about 50 kids running around and everyone was still so kind and patient with the ruckus. I can't say enough about our experience with this fun, funky, eclectic venue. If your looking for a venue with pizazz minus the pretension, this place is for you. Thank you so much Mercury for an EPIC, UNFORGETTABLE day ❤️

Bottom line...this is an amazing place to have an event. From the very beginning of the planning for our marriage celebration Marilyn and her team were extremely helpful. She gave so much great advice to start and was very accommodating.

The space is amazing! The beautiful lights and decor really set this place apart. Our guests could not get over how wonderful everything looked.

She did all my centerpieces for me as well as set the tables up exactly how I described. She helped us figure out the budget and really went out of her way to get us what we wanted.

The wedding was wonderful. The food was so good people are still talking about it! The venue is perfect if you want a small wedding with everything is one place or an amazing reception right in the heart of Denver! The value is unsurpassed! The cost is low for what you get and I could not have been happier!
