Mother Mercy Launches ‘Café Mercy’

Mother Mercy, a popular name on the cocktail scene and recently recognised as one of the Top 50 Cocktail Bars in the UK, has just announced the opening of ‘Café Mercy,’ its fifth venue in the North East. Nestled in the heart of Grey Street, Café Mercy is set to open its doors on Friday, 25 August, ahead of the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Mother Mercy’s New Adventure

After captivating the hearts of cocktail enthusiasts at their other venues (Cloth Market, Fenwick’s and along the Quayside) and winning the Newcastle Chronicle’s ‘Best Bar’ award last year, Mother Mercy has embarked on a new adventure ‘Café Mercy,’ promising the laid-back allure of Ibiza harmoniously blending with the timeless charm of Mediterranean chic.

Occupying the iconic location formerly known as Dacantus, Café Mercy promises to transport guests to a realm of sophisticated delights and impeccable aesthetics. The interior design exudes a sense of understated elegance, creating an inviting and enchanting atmosphere.

The exterior of Café Mercy will gracefully intertwine and complement the elegant Georgian architecture on Grey Street, named one of the most beautiful streets in Europe.

A Wide Cocktail Range

Café Mercy boasts an enticing cocktail menu offering a range of their signature and new cocktails creations, including their famous and hugely popular Spritzes. Highlights from the menu include their Santorini Spritz; a Beefeater blood orange gin, with rose, almond, blood orange soda and Prosecco.

Catering to those seeking a premium cocktail haven in Newcastle, Café Mercy will also be offering charcuterie and small plates to accompany their drinks, adding to the experience of being whisked away to a sun-kissed paradise.

Upon stepping in, guests will become immersed in a modern Mediterranean-inspired setting, adorned with rattan furnishings and white marble tables. The venue will house a spacious bar area, high tables, as well a stylish outdoor terrace.

Seating up to 50 guests throughout the venue, the chairs and booths will showcase the signature Mother Mercy coral, infusing a vibrant splash of colour into the modern Mediterranean design. Adding to the ambience, intricate tapestry-inspired wall art will further enhance the modern Greek motif, setting the stage for a relaxed experience.
