We’ve been hearing rumblings for a while now that Submercer, the onetime hot spot beneath the Mercer Hotel, was going to reopen. Now UrbanDaddy confirms it, and their description of how to find the place is the most exciting thing since those first giddy stirrings about La Esquina:
To get there, pass the Mercer Hotel (no. 147) and enter a little nook in the wall (no. 147 1/2). You’ll know you’re there when you see two unassuming henchmen hanging out in front of a doorway—just walk on by and enter the industrial freight elevator. Two floors underground, cruise down a long dark hallway stocked with bathroom supplies, turn left, pass the boiler room and then turn right through a heavy red door. One more hallway filled with wine and the faint sounds of lounge music will lead you to the promised land.
So Soho loungers now have a choice between Upstairs and downstairs. Good to have options.
