If you’ve never been to EaDo (east downtown) Houston before, then you might want to start making plans. It’s a burgeoning part of the city that’s home to concert venues such as Warehouse Live, along with restaurants and hotels that include District 7 Grill and Hilton Americas-Houston. And with the area progressing so quickly with new developments and sites to see, EaDo welcomes a nightlife newcomer that’s ready for Vegas-style entertaining.

Main Room

Opening on Oct. 13, Mercy is a dance club that fuses fashion, art and ambiance within a 10,000-square-foot space that has made a lasting impression on guests within the first month of its opening.  For starters, Mercy is all about accessibility; that means easy access to get in, to order drinks and even to park. The venue boasts, get this – 400 parking spots for Mercy guests. From the moment you arrive, you have four different parking lots, free street parking or a valet option to choose from.


Mercy’s Step-n-Repeat Room

Once inside this dance destination, you’re introduced to a colorful graffiti room that also works as a step-n-repeat for club-goers looking to timeline their memories from Mercy. Local artist Gonzo247 created the graffiti design which embraces artwork themes that can be seen throughout EaDo.

But the décor and design of the club doesn’t stop with girls vying for a snap on the step-n-repeat. Probably the most memorable element is the structural design of the entryway that leads into the main room.  A large “M” welcomes guests as they walk through to get to the dance floor, two full bars and VIP seating areas. It’s a signature design element that you’ll find at other high-profile venues, such as Clé with its keyhole entryway.

And, of course, we can’t talk about Mercy without discussing the music. Top 40/EDM mixes and mashups are what keep the bodies flowing throughout the venue, with help from some recognizable names. Mikey G is on the decks on Friday nights with Seb & Valko taking the reins on Saturdays. The venue’s lighting and sound system plays a huge role in steering the night with its state-of-the-art LED matrix lighting system.

Mercy is lining itself up to be the downtown hotspot where big name performers appear and celebs want to stop and visit. Diplo surprised fans with a performance for the Something Wicked after-party on Saturday, Oct. 29. The venue is also gearing up for Lil Jon, who’ll be performing a special DJ set on Friday, Nov. 11.

So If you’re searching for a prime venue that can accommodate your sense of style, entourage and after-5 spending habits, Mercy is definitely the place for you.
