Charleston Food and Beverage Scene
You are going to love the Charleston food and beverage scene: The greater Charleston, South Carolina area is as rich in dining and nightlife as its American history. By history…the first shots of the Civil War were fired right from our harbor via Fort Sumter.
We retaliated but more than 70% of our city was in shambles. We
would rebuild to offer a city rich in history, art, tourism, and of course…some of the best low country restaurants in the world.Per capita, Charleston SC is just behind San Francisco in its dining establishments.
With the birth of local Culinary School Johnson & Wales, Charleston could offer low country cuisine at its finest with professionally trained cooks, chefs, servers and bartenders. This was the base for culinary tradition in this petite, historic, hospitable town.
As you can see restaurants of all calibers are of no shortage here, but what about the bars, pubs, and nightlife? The greater Charleston area comprised of downtown Charleston, West Ashley, James Island, Folly Beach, Johns Island, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, Shem Creek, Daniel Island, North Charleston, and Summerville, have more bars than you know what to do with. One can venture just a stone throw away to discover a unique entertaining nightlife experience in each one of these areas and islands with out frequenting the same bar or restaurant twice.
If the beach is more your style with swaying palm trees and true southern hospitality…Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, and Sullivan’s Island are just a hop skip and a jump from the downtown Charleston Peninsula. Beach bars, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and great breakfast joints line the main beach roads with no shortage of fine food, alcoholic concoctions, live music, and excellent culinary service.
