Nice Nightcap

A nice nightcap after a wonderful day at Ocean Course. This place is as upscale as the hotel itself with terrific views of Charleston. Really could not ask for more. Enjoy Pavillion Bar!

It's a nice view just like everyone told me it would be. Dropped by for a cocktail which turned into 3...it happens. Was somewhat dismayed when the bill came and there was a $3 per drink upcharge on a $9.50 Lemon Drop Martini, times 9 for the table, you get the picture. Paid the bill without question, but next time... More

I was expecting great things of this rooftop bar but unfortunately, although the views were fantastic, the rest of the experience was lacking. Each of the tables is surrounded on three sides by a wall of Perspex -it looked permanent so I can't imagine how hot it must get in high summer! We saw heaters all around for use on... More

Please allow to thank you for joining us at the Pavilion Bar. As not being from Charleston the weather has been very unpredictable this spring. We have the temporary Plexiglass only in the winter and removed early spring until late fall. You can imagine having the best roof top bar in the city we want to make it the most... More

Rooftop with an amazing view at an upper scale hotel. The atmosphere is super fun. My friends had a great time. I personally didn't like the drinks too much. Expensive and not good quality. But go for the fun and view. DJ was not great, but the crowd made up for it. We will be back.

Beautiful evening on the roof, great way to spend an evening. The tuna tower was wonderful! The heaters were on to take the chill out of the air, so it was perfect!

Lunch on the rooftop was great. Amazing sandwiches, good salads (modest sized) and decent drinks. The views of the city and bridge below a plus.

Rooftop hotel bar with incredible views. Very Vegas like with pool and DJ. Fun Place to have a late night drink and overlook the historic downtown. Don't let the hotel lobby fool you. Nice jazz bar in lobby but rooftop is happening. Great place to dance. Nice heaters for winter.

A small, pretty pool and lots of rooftop space looking at the Cooper River Bridge and over the roofs of downtown. High top tables with four or five chairs, first come. Up beat music played but not too loud to talk. Attentive service. Had a SC beer and the tuna tower. Wasn't expecting upscale food but it was delicious with... More
