Bars: Mé Bar

March 28th, 2007

Spring is here. Yesterday New York had the warmest day of the year so far. It got up to 78, which beats the hell out of the frigid temperatures we had for most of the second half of winter.
After work Eric and I met up at Me Bar on the roof of the La Quinta in Koreatown. The bar is small and remarkably unglamorous, considering how fancied up so many roof bars can be. I got there just around 6pm, which is apparently the perfect time. When I got there, only two or three of the outdoor tables were taken, by the time Eric got there around 6:45, it was standing room only.
The beer selection was unexpected. It had some of the usual generic beer, but it also had some relatively obscure mid-shelf beers as well. I drank Red Hook ESB and Anchor Porter, Eric had Kirin. They also stocked Sol, a Mexican beer that you don’t find in too many places.

Despite being on the roof, you can’t see particularly far. The 14th floor isn’t so high in the middle of midtown. I glanced around and wasn’t particularly impressed with the view. That is until the person across from me started taking pictures of something behind me. I turned around and there was the Empire State Building, up close and personal.
We drank beer until we got snacky, then we got dinner at Bon Chon.
