Suggestions for Rooftop Bar in Charleston, Sc?
We are heading to Charleston in a little over a week and would love some suggestions on the various rooftop bars. We were looking at, in particular, the Vendue Inn rooftop cocktail bar. How is it? Can you make reservation if you would like to eat at the rooftop as well?
re: Sue in Mt P
We used to stay at the Ansonborough Inn which had a rooftop terrace overlooking the city and river. There was a hot tub and sitting area up there. We'd take a bottle of wine and just enjoy the view. I haven't been in 6 or 7 years so check their website. They may have developed it into something since then.
No frills, no food, no blenders, but if you are going to be on Folly beach I would go to the rooftop bar on the 3rd floor of Snapper Jacks.Has an ocean view and you can enjoy the laid-back Folly lifestyle.Beach attire is fine.
$250? No way.
You don't need reservations at any of the places.
Snapper Jack's (like ALL of Folly) is very laid back. No shoes or shirts required. But great.
Vendue has 2 levels, try the upper deck if you want some privacy.
The Pavilion Bar above Grill 225 at the corner of Market & East Bay is more refined I think.
Don't forget Henry's on Market as well. A bit more relaxed.
BUT! I certainly would NOT eat at any of them. They are totally for after hours cocktails.

The bar at the Market Pavillion is more upscale. With all the great resataurants in Charelston don't waste a meal there though. It is great for cocktails before dinner / sunset or after.
Go for the view but nothing more, not even an overpriced drink. The place will try to sell you seafood, but there is much better and cheaper seafood to be had across the street at Pearlz or Amen St. This is a wannabe place that fired all of their longterm employees and hired cheaper, tourist season staff, which they will in turn fire when the tourist season ends. Not a place to support with your hard earned dollars. For outdoor dining, go find Leaf, where many former Rooftop employees now happily work. Good food and happy employees make for fun times--on Beaufain St.
