Nicholas Dotin and his lovely wife Gay were as nervous as a couple of long tail cats in a room full of rockin' chairs when they decided to open The Mercer Street Dancehall on February First 2013.
Nicholas has worked as a Texas musician and producer for many years while his wife, Gay, worked in the Hotel industry managing and planning special events.
Nicholas and Gay have the perfect combination of skill sets to make The Mercer Street Dancehall one of the finest dancehalls in the Texas Hill Country.
The idea to open The Mercer Street Dancehall was a somewhat welcome suggestion from their daughter, Shelby. Nicholas and Gay were growing tired of driving Shelby to Hill Country dance halls and decided to open one in Dripping Springs. Needless to say, Shelby and her friends are excited about having a Dancehall in their neck of the woods...
What Musicians are saying about Mercer Street:
“Best Honky Tonk in Central Texas!”
Mercer Street Dance Hall is all Texas, real Texas. There is nothing about this place you won't like. The location is cool, the folks are fabulous and the music is world-famous. A dance at Mercer Street is what Texas is all about.
"Mercer Street is exactly what Dripping Springs has been needing. An authentic Texas dance hall. Love This Place!"
Mercer Street Dancehall is my favorite new hall because it feels like an old one 'cept cooler - it's got a pretty good A/C...
"Mercer Street Dancehall is way overdue in Dripping Springs. The atomoshere they have created is just great and the diversity of music they offer will have something for almost everyone. It's now one of my favorite places to play and I hope to have a long standing relationship with them down the road"
"I was honored to play opening night at Mercer Street Dance Hall. As soon as I stepped through the door it felt like Texas and I fell in love with the place! Mercer Street Dancehall reminds me of the great places that I grew up two stepping in! Nick took a Barn and turned it into a Texas Dance Hall. Now that's the Texas thing to do and the place has the fun lovin' staff to back up the Texas feel I am bragging about!"
"Not only does Mercer Street have an amazing setup both inside and out, the sound is great, both the crowd and the staff are always friendly and the beer is always cold. Needless to say, every night at Mercer Street is a party for everyone who loves a classic Texas Dancehall!"
