Yes, it's surprising, we know. The ambience downstairs at Midi puts out a vibe that emanates from the bar itself, not the people around it. After being reassured by the hostess that it's just concrete, you just have to investigate further. As you draw your face closer and closer to the thousands of softly glowing lights, squint your eyes and lightly touch the smooth concrete surface, you may ask yourself, how did this happen? Well, that's our little secret. Order some cocktails and play a few rounds of connect the glowing dots before heading upstairs for some French Californian cuisine.
Check out concrete countertops at Midi Restaurant at Sutter and Kearny next time you're downtown, there's nothing quite like it. View slideshow here.
