The Charleston City Guide

Charleston boasts a rich history, vibrant food and arts scene, breathtaking architecture, and spectacular beaches. It's always a pleasure to visit, catch up with friends, and take in what the city has to offer. Explore our guide to the Holy City.

LITTLE JACK'S TAVERN

TO EAT

Situated in a moody venue with nostalgic art, green and white checkered tablecloths, good music, and even better bartenders - the best burger of your life awaits. The Tavern Burger is simple yet sublime with American cheese and griddled onion, but it's the accouterment of the “tavern sauce” that takes it absolutely over the top. Paired with a side of warm garlic knots and Jack’s Rum Old Fashioned - this combination is a force to be reckoned with.

LEON'S FINE POULTRY & OYSTER SHOP

TO EAT

Nothingfeels quite as lively or inviting as Leon’s. Converted from an old auto body shop, the buzz on the yellow umbrella-clad patio travels inside, where it lingers at the colorful bar, the community high-top tables, and within each cozy nook. Our suggestion? It's in the name. Oysters and fried chicken all around. Oh, and don’t forget the frozen Gin & Tonic.

MELFI’S

TO EAT

It’s an elevated Italian joint that feels particularly special. Its brick-laden walls, long wooden bar, and wood-burning ovens are rich and warm, while its rich cognac and green leather seating is the perfect punctuation to break up the moody interior. If it were up to us, the ideal combination is this: an ice-cold martini, the “sort of spicy” Caesar salad, the Stretch Armstrong pizza, and the bucatini cacio e pepe for good measure. Save some for us.

FIG

TO EAT

FIG, standing for Food Is Good, lives up to the name, but you’ll find each dish is better than good or even great - food at FIG is phenomenal. Situated in a beautifully modern bistro with a seasonal menu that places emphasis on sourcing locally, it’s always a pleasant surprise to learn what our friend, Chef Mike Lata, is cooking up. Book in advance and come hungry.

BIN 152

TO DRINK

Neighbor to our King Street shop in the heart of downtown is Bin 152. A cozy wine and cheese bar featuring an expansive wine menu with over 40 different wines by the glass and over 200 by the bottle. The wine, cheese, and charcuterie offering is impressive, yes, but the hand-painted chocolates and truffles might steal the show. Be sure to visit Bin 152’s sister restaurants, Chez Nous, and Malagón.

BAR 167

TO DRINK

Bar 167, sister bar to the (incredibly) famous 167 Raw Oyster Bar, can do good drinks and savory bites all by itself. Rivaling its big sister in interiors, too, you’ll feel like you’re dining oceanside in Santorini with its lit-from-within agate bar top, Cypress walls, and crisp white accents. Find a spot on the patio, order the Jungle Cat, and sip slowly.

BILLY REID KING STREET SHOP

TO DO

We’d be remiss if we didn’t recommend spending some time in our shop, located at 150 King Street. Our building dates back to 1865 and is a distinct little jewel box situated on lower King amongst galleries and antique shops. Explore the neighborhood, visit with our shop team, enjoy our curation of art and antiques, preview our latest collection, and let us pour you a drink if you’re so inclined.

THE COMMODORE

TO DO

An iconic jazz club for locals and visitors alike, The Commodore is a lively spot of, what feels like, a bygone era. A house band of jazz musicians plays well into the morning against a rich, red backdrop enveloped in velvet curtains while the bartenders work diligently behind the bar serving up craft cocktails. Go early for a laidback feel, and stay late for the dancing.

CHARLESTON RIVERDOGS

TO DO

As baseball enthusiasts, it should come as no surprise that we recommend experiencing a game while in town. The Charleston RiverDogs are a Minor League Baseball team of the Carolina League and make their home in Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park. The games draw a crowd, and although the stadium is modest in size, it makes it that much easier to try and spot Bill Murray, who is part-owner and the “Director of Fun.”

ZERO GEORGE HOTEL

TO STAY

Tucked away in the French Quarter is a dreamy boutique hotel named Zero George. The property is comprised of restored homes that date back to the early 1800s, boasting quaint verandas, courtyards that exude Charleston charm, thoughtfully modern interiors, exceptional service, and a restaurant (Zero Restaurant + Bar) that is worth writing home about.

THE DEWBERRY

TO STAY

The Dewberry is a mid-century modern masterpiece that warrants all the attention it garners. Formerly a federal building, the hotel has been restored and reimagined - making it the sanctuary it is today. Complete with a lobby bar (The Living Room), rooftop bar (The Citrus Club), spa, and more - you’ll appreciate that no detail goes unnoticed.
