Dancethropology - THE MERCAT

Episode Summary

The Mercat started operating at the very crack of melbourne’s rave dawn, the 90’s, and while the club started off techno and futuristic sounds it was also home to some great dnb & dub nights, that ended up being the meeting ground for quite a few of Melbourne’s key players in the next iteration of Melbourne's scene. rightfully earning The Mercat its place in Melbourne’s night-club lore. I sat down and spoke to Daragh Kan. The last person left holding the torch at the historic Melbourne pub/club. Daragh was the one of the founders of Animals Dancing, currently runs no less than 20 hospo venues, and is a bit of a marketing & design wizz and presents a realistic view of what it takes to operate your own venue in past ten years.
