Went to this rooftop after traveling to Charleston and all the locals suggest Market Pavilion Hotel for dinner (Grill 225) and drinks after on the roof! It was fabulous ! My sister and I had a blast!!! We dance until we could barley stand! So we parked it at the bar and the guys behind there were outstanding! It was... More

I was at your Pavilion Bar Thursday night with my husband. The view was fantastic. We ordered dinner and drinks. The Tuscan Pizza tasted delicious. This would have been just a good night out if it weren't for our server Lori. Sometimes you run into a gem that turns your experience from good to outstanding. Lori was that gem. Not... More

Had such an amazing time dancing! Drinks delicious! And Dave had my boyfriend and I laughing so hard. Best service at that rooftop bar! Dave and his staff converted us to a market pavilion customer for life! No more staying at charleston place! Market pavilion is where it's at! Especially the bar on the roof!

Loved the sweet tea martini and the view of the Charleston Harbor. We had filet kabobs with chimichurri sauce and a GIANT tomato salad. Both were delicious! The menu is limited but we were pleased. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. We were there for sunset and it was a great place to end our day of... More

Excellent drinks, impeccable service and great food. The view over the roofs of Charleston is priceless during the day and superb at night. You do not need much else in a bar.

Came here as a tourist with a large group of friends. The view was fantastic! The drink pricing not so much. Beers $5, Margaritas 8.50, but then anything else was expensive.... wine... mixed drinks, numerous mojitos (lots of ice =not much drink) and martinis at a whopping $16 and up. We were going to get appetizers, but the prices were... More

Upon arriving to this rooftop bar, I was in my element. A gorgeous setting with stunning views of Charleston. I would go as far as to say this setting could rival some of the best roof top bars I've seen in Europe. My excitement to be there rapidly waned when I went to the bar to buy a drink for... More

The only positive thing I can say about this bar is it has beautiful views of Charleston! The DJ was ok and the concept of a roof too bar is a good idea (minus the "Jersey Shore" fist pumping feel) this bar lacks customer service! My friends and I each ordered drinks from the bar at $16-$20 a drink. Bacardi... More

I love this place for so many reason, it's in the middle of downtown, it's an amazing view, the drinks are great, the food is delicious. It's a go to place when friends are visiting or family is in town! They have this tuna tower with guacamole and crab that is heavenly!! I'm also a fan of their bloody Mary's.... More

Well, this is just the perfect place to have sunset cocktails. It is literally the best view in town. I dare you to try to find one better!
