Just around the corner...

We have a great time every Thursday night at the Mercury Cafe, but sometimes, we like to get a little bit fancy and have a little bit more fun to boot.  We hope the Mercury Cafe becomes your place where "everybody knows your name", but if you don't have the time to become a regular, certainly don't miss these Special Events!

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

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.

tiki party

We brought back the Tiki Party, a Denver Classic in the Swing community, begun by Tiffiny Shea Wine and 23 Skidoo many years back!  While the Merc was dressed up in sumac foliage, we had a fun, tropical Swing night with a limbo contest, hula, mixed drinks, and more!

May the 4th Swing

This was an awesome night of Swing Dancing with out-of-this-world libations, a Yoda pinata, the twin suns of Tatooine on stage, and a Charleston Contest to the Cantina song from Episode IV!  Everyone came dressed as their favorite smugglers, bounty hunters, aliens, and other SW memorabilia-themed attire.

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!
