To find the clandestine Merc Bar, hunt around the center of the Esplanade while trying to spy the tiny golden plaque beside its front door. Once that's done, head inside to soak up its high style setting -- brass tables, designer sofas, dark wood accents -- and virtual bat-cave lighting. Clientele is of the well-heeled sort, with plenty of businessmen and pretty young things sipping French martinis while nibbling on gourmet appetizers. Get there early, the place fills up quickly.
