My mother and I were on a fall vacation last week to retreat to one our favorite cities in the nation. We've been to Charleston several times in the past few years but had not yet had a chance to try the Pavilion Rooftop Bar on a Saturday night. Upon arrival we were greeting and seated a immediately by our... More

Loved the rooftop view of the harbor and river but also had great atmosphere and buzz while there. Good drinks but would suggest they add some coffee drinks to the menu for chillier nights!

After dinner, we stopped for a drink at the Pavilion Bar which is on the rooftop of the Market Pavilion Hotel. The views of the Ravenel Bridge from this place at sunset are simply amazing. It was about 70 degrees with a light breeze blowing. We all had a glass of wine which was good. You can expect to pay... More

if you would like the all time WORST watered down $16 mojito ever made with a double dose of arrogancy be sure to visit the roof top bar. They should be ashamed..... at least it is a beautiful city...

Stayed at hotel and went to roof bar to watch football. Beautiful tenders, great service. Great cocktails. Nice menu. We split tuna tartare, filet quesadillas. Perfect. They for finale had Kobe burger with foie gras and onion strings. Must have gained four pounds but worth it. Must see views.

We have been to Pavilion Bar several times and are consistently pleased with the food, drinks, view and service. The food is always delicious, but we also enjoy just stopping in for a drink. Out of all the rooftop atmospheres in Charleston, this is by far our favorite.

I didn't stay at the hotel but wanted to see the rooftop pool and have a drink on the roof. It was a beautiful fall day with the temps in the mid 80's and not a cloud in the sky. It was way too cool sitting beside the the pool, which is only open for the guests, and enjoying the... More

Stopped in with some friends for a bottle of wine, as well as a chance for the guys to smoke some cigars (they have a specific section for this). The rooftop area is beautiful, with the fountains going in the pool, a DJ with small dance floor, and lit umbrella tables lining the perimeter of the rooftop. The service was... More

We had a late lunch, so we ended up just having a glass of wine and burger/appetizers. Our server was so helpful in recommending the perfect wine for my husband. His burger was very good, and I had the steak quesadillas, which were good as well. A very enjoyable evening!
