---By Julia Koprak Translated by Michael Ho

A hop away from the excitement of ZhongXiao/DunHua, Meeting is a prime after-work spot for...well, exactly what the name implies. Conveniently enough, the Chinese name has a double innuendo: it means a place for Nine-to-Five-ers as well as a place where you can booze away and boogie on down.
The stylishly 1960's retro decor itself makes Meeting worthy enough for a visit. Inside, you'll find a plethora of animal print fabrics, gorgeously tacky chandeliers, funky carpeting and various interesting chatchkas. Each piece of furniture is unique and carefully placed in such a way that the setting seems extravagant but not overdone or cliched.

And their attitude is just as comfy as their couches. When it's time to place your order, your server will happily plop down next to you to have a chat or make some recommendations. The night I went there, the vivacious boss insisted I try Meeting's "creme de la creme". The specialty cocktails (NT$250-450) are worth a taste. We sipped on the Red Wern (NT$280), a fruity red wine cocktail with a special aroma, and the Blue Aegean Sea (NT$280), a rum-based blend with a fresh coconut flavor. As for food, there's a variety of snacks as well as pasta and rice entrees. The most intruiging was the Sour with Spicy Black Egg Mixed, which put a great Thai spin on a classic Taiwanese dish by adding vinegar and chilis. A popular choice, the Spaghetti with Seafood in X.O. Sauce had much zest without being too heavy.

What's more are the special discounts available throughout the week. Every night features an unlimited drink special (weekdays NT$490, weekends NT$590). This price drops to NT$290 on Mondays for Nine-to-Five-ers, Wednesdays for ladies and Sundays for students.
After a long day at work, Meeting's plush sofas and tasty concotions are an instant dose of grandmotherly love. Score a top seat at this hipster hang out and just let loose.
