Bring your camera,... More

Just visited the Pavilion Bar, it was a class act. Stopped by for a few drinks and to check out the view. Our Waitress Jessica was very pleasant and was very good about answering drink questions and recommending good ones. I will recommend this place to my friends who come and visit Charleston.

The view is beautiful! My husband and I were happy to be there and see the sunset. However, the drinks were very expensive, they might want to consider putting some alcohol in them...

While staying at the Market Pavilion we visited the Pavilion Bar and received excellent service. The atmosphere was extremely better that the bar scene, service was personable and delightful. Plans to return. The view was pretty decent also.

The view is breathtaking from all sides year around but what keeps us coming back is the staff. Junior, Dave and Cheryl make you feel as if you are in your neighborhood bar!
