Mercury Lounge

Mercury is a contemporary, mid-century inspired cocktail lounge in downtown Omaha, NE. Birdhouse was hired to infuse a newly updated brand identity into the interior design. Working closely with the owner-operators, we crafted an environmental concept that added personality and liveliness to the lounge. 

Mercury Lounge

Creative Direction / Interior Design

We decided that our primary focus would be to modify the floor plan’s flow and function to accommodate varying types of patrons and parties. Seldom-used dining spaces were replaced with a custom banquette seating area that creates a more laid-back and intimate feel in the back of the bar. The new configuration is a win-win in that it accommodates larger gatherings, too! 

Subtle and sophisticated references to the Space program were incorporated with layered hints tucked into original artwork, wall treatments, and custom-designed lighting fixtures by our Nebraska friends at Pax Lighting. And comfortable and durable lounge furniture, carpet squares that help define the space and absorb sound, and textural accessories were also added.
