Just around the corner...

We have a great time every week at the Mercury Cafe, but we like to dress up and get fancy too.  We hope the Mercury Cafe becomes the place where "everybody knows your name" and these special events (or our weekly swing nights) are a great place to start!

If you'd like to hire teachers, performers, teams, or dancers for YOUR special event (weddings, corporate gigs, etc.) write us at info@swingnights.com!


Past Events

Here is a collection of our past events filled with awesome memories. We've had a lot of good times, and hope you’ll join us for them the next time around...


tiki party

The Tiki Party is a Denver Classic in the Swing community, originally started by Tiffiny Wine and 23 Skidoo over a decade ago!  The Merc gets dressed up in summer sumac foliage, for a fun, tropical Swing night with limbo contests, hula contests, mixed drinks, and more!

May the 4th Swing

May the Fourth be with you! Check out this article on our Star Wars night at makingstarwars.net...

Always an awesome night of Swing Dancing with out-of-this-world libations, Yoda pinatas, the twin suns of Tatooine, and a Charleston Contest to the Cantina song from Ep. IV!  Everyone comes dressed as their favorite smuggler, bounty hunter, alien, or in other SW memorabilia-themed attire.

Holiday Swing Party

This is always a great night as we come together for a white elephant gift exchange, an ugly sweater contest, performances by the Mercury Cafe's home swing teams and more!

Great Gatsby Swing Night

Everyone dressed to dazzle in their best 1920's reminiscent attire! We spent the entire evening Lindy Hopping, Charleston-ing and Jitterbugging the night away with a Charleston contest at 10 pm, a photo booth, and beautiful hand-crafted cocktails.


Onesie Swing Dance!

Was 2016 the year of the Onesie?  Who knows, but there sure were a lot of Onesies at retail!  Pick your favorite and come Swing Dance with us at the Mercury Cafe.  We'll also be having a dance contest that we're calling the Goof Off: conquer it solo or with a partner!

Beginner Lesson @6pm $10
Intermediate Lesson @7pm $10
Dance @8pm $8


Harvest Moon Ball

We celebrated the season and our friendships in formal attire while dancing under a gigantic mirror ball!  There's a lot of history in the name "Harvest Moon Ball" for Swing dancers, with incredible vintage footage from the Madison Square Garden Harvest Moon Ball Competitions that still inspire us today!
