The Roof Top Bar is one of the best places to enjoy a gorgeous sunset over the city of Charleston. We had a delicious supper and were fantastically well looked after by our charming server, Jessica Chiavacci. I must especially recommend the incredible ice cream cookie dessert, which is HUGE but utterly delicious. We waddled down from the roof top... More

My wife and I were in Charleston this past weekend for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. The rooftop bar was our favorite stop as we visited many bars and restaurants. The view is obviously breathtaking but what really made our visit was the incredible service. Our server, Raquel, greeted us immediately and made us feel comfortable on a very busy Friday... More

The Market Pavilion is the best hotel in Charleston. The local market is only steps from the hotel along with amazing restaurants, historic sites and the famous King Street with tons of shops. The best part of the hotel is the Pavilion Roof Top! The view is unbelievable and the bartender Junior Yniesta makes the most delicious cocktails. This is... More

Enjoyed the Roof Top Bar. Excellent service from the staff. Excellent bar service from Jr. Beautiful view of Charleston from the roof. Doesn't matter if you go day or night. Felt very welcomed and accommodated. I would highly friends and family to gather to have a couple of drinks and relax.

Jr. and Dave provided amazing service to me as I was in town for business. They not only provided fine service, but they went above and beyond and talked to me about things to see and do. I will come back for their service alone. Also, Marc, the bartender downstairs, was on the same level of service and definitely helped... More

As a former Charleston Resident, & life long foodie, there is only one place to see or be seen... The "Roof Top" as its referred to has been "the" spot since the hotel opened. Not only is it the best view in Charleston, the food, drink and quality of service is spectacular. We travel to Charleston a couple times a... More

My wife and I came to stay for an exotic anniversary weekend. We had a picturesque time! It was amazing. The staff also helped push everything over the top (special thanks to JR!). The top notch drinks really helped set the mood for each night! We will definitely be back for more!

My husband and I were visiting his family in the suburbs of Charleston and took an evening to ourselves in downtown. We heard about the Market Pavilion Rooftop so we decided to give it a try - what an awesome venue! The vibe was great, the views were amazing and the service was outstanding. Junior took car of us and... More

Given the price and generally positive reviews online, I was very excited for my long weekend at the Market Pavilion Hotel. On the bright side, the location is great - centrally located, walking distance to great restaurants, etc. This is where the positives end. The hotel is crusty and dated. The rooftop pool/bar is small, sleepy and overrated. The rooms... More

The best bar in downtown Charleston. You have to stop and get a drink by Junior there bartender. Lots of fund times with Junior!! This is a great place to get a group of friends and go out for the night.
