I knew the Myers Park Harris Teeter had a bar, but I honestly thought it was going to be crappy. Boy was I wrong — it’s amazing.
Sure, turning left into this Teeter is a nightmare, but even beer snobs will love the second-floor Harris Teeter bar.
The selection is outstanding. The service is more intelligent and thoughtful than your typical bar.
Take the elevator or stairs to the second floor. On your left, you’ll find the bar — serving customers from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., every day.
“I’ve worked well-known bars like McCormick & Schmick’s and for smaller restaurant groups, but I got tired of the hours,” said Travis, the bar manager. Travis greeted a customer by name, which showed me that he understands hospitality. I also love that there are Myers Park Harris Teeter bar regulars.
To start, I had Travis pour me a 9.6% Sierra Nevada Triple IPA. Since it wasn’t a Monday or Wednesday, I had to pay full price — $3.
Travis rotates kegs depending on the seasons and what’s he’s interested in. We’re talking premium beers. While I was there, a keg was kicked and they were putting on Lenny Boy’s Double IPA, Booty Call (8.7%).
Here’s the full beer list and Harris Teeter’s daily specials are ridiculously cheap. Legit beers.
- Monday: All $3 beers are $2
- Wednesday: All $3 beers are $2
- Friday: 1/2 priced wines by the glass
- Saturday: Wine flights are $6 & all $3 beers are $2
Because they’re a grocery store, this Myers Park Harris Teeter is able to offer unbeatable prices on premium beer and wine.
Looking to try wines? Harris Teeter has you covered.
$6 wine flights on Saturday.
If you’re looking for a date night activity, pre-game at Harris Teeter for cheap, then walk 50 yards to Lumiere (which only has a tiny 3-seat bar) for dinner. If you don’t have reservations and Lumiere has a wait, they’ll also call/text you as you sip inexpensive vino on the Harris Teeter porch.
I swear, the second-story patio doesn’t feel like you’re in a Harris Teeter.
Snacks? Buy anything inside the store or have them prepare a meal for you. Travis is also working on charcuterie boards (love this idea).
Oh, and live music on Friday nights.
