Help the Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge Staff

As our industry continues to see the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercury Lounge and Bowery Ballroom have made the hard, but necessary, decision to close our doors indefinitely. While we continue to monitor this situation, the reality is that over 100 of our hourly employees are out of work, and with an uncertain economic future.

It’s absolutely imperative to us that the same people who have given their time to lifting up our artists, patrons, and community for the past 25 years in New York City are also taken care of in their time of need.

We ask that if you are able, please consider donating to our GoFundMe. 100% of the funds donated toward our goal will go to supplementing the income of our night-time hourly staff until we can open our doors again to you.

Stay healthy, be kind to one another, and we can’t wait to see you all on the other side of this.
