In the heart of Norman, The Mercury, a fantastically spacious downtown venue was created in the early fall of 2017 as a modern, rustic, urban event space serving Norman, Moore, South Oklahoma City and beyond. Our goal; to deliver unique, extraordinary experiences for our clients as they celebrate life and make memories that will last a lifetime. With a passion and emphasis on the arts we love supporting local, regional and national artists and musicians. Hosting an intriguing diversity of events, our clients include universities, corporations, non-profit organizations, and individuals celebrating milestones in their lives including weddings, anniversaries, graduations, banquets, birthdays, business conferences and parties of all kinds.
Our name, The Mercury, surfaced literally from beneath one of the walls of our building, where we found historical advertisements uncovering what the building was in the 1950s; a Mercury car dealership. In the atomic age, car designs were futuristic and men dressed to the nines which inspired us with a flare of class and coolness to the building, hence the name was born.
Our event packages can include up to three spaces: our main hall with 50-foot wood barrel ceilings, our east room, great for buffets and bars, and our huge outdoor space with Edison string lights and horizontal wood fencing where we set up event tents, tables, games, etc. With the versatility of both indoor and outdoor spaces we are ready for any kind of weather and love hosting multi-space events.
Our venue rental includes 15 big, seventy-two inch tables, 100 white padded wedding chairs, 6 bistros, a cocktail tent and sound system with microphone. We can scale up or down according to need with A/V, stages, big tents, heaters, décor and even a bridal suite.
Our services can include event management and planning where we will be happy to source, hire and coordinate with vendors including catering, bar services, bakers, florists, security and entertainment, such as DJs, and bands.
