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! The service is amazing and between the live dj and gorgeous pool with fountains I was not sure if I was in St. Tropez or Charleston! Seriously though... I had brought a... More

We went here at the end of the day, around the time that all of the tourist things start shutting down, and we got the last table that was available. I could tell that people usually get a table and camp out for a while, so you need to go early. At some point, when the sun gets low enough,... More

What a great time in Charleston and topping it off with a trip to the Market Pavilion Rooftop bar was the best idea. The view was great, the drinks cold and the bartenders ( Dave and Jr.) were on right on. Can't wait for another visit!

Stopped here for a drink on the rooftop bar, based on reviews on trip advisor. Beautiful hotel, greeted by hotel staff in a friendly, professional way. Took elevator to the roof and found a beautiful pool and rooftop bar with a breath taking view of the Revenal Bridge a and Charleston. It all went downhill when we approached the bar... More
