Roof top bar

Lovely roof top bar and pool. Casual, great views, and easy access. Great place to congregate and meet in the afternoon and after dinner.

Me and a couple friends were bar hoping and we decided to go up to the roof. The host was great as he walked us to a table. The server was nice. And I don't want to forget about the Dj he played some good music. We had a few drinks which was awsome I enjoyed the nite breeze. I... More

The first day of our first trip to Charleston and my wife and I visited the rooftop Pavilion Bar for lunch. We sat at the bar, the sun shining, a breeze blowing, an infinity pool with fountains behind us, and terrific views of Charleston. The food and drinks were good, and JR was the perfect bartender. He provided all sorts... More

Sitting here right now with my girlfriend on her birthday. We sat at the bar waiting for a table, drinks are expensive and served in plastic cups, but good. Service was good at the bar. We've been sitting at a table for 35 min now and asked for water and menu twice now but still waiting. No one has even... More

A great place to take a load off, relax, and have a cool cocktail, and a delicious lunch! Pavilion Punch comes highly recommended. Their Flatbread pizzas are good, as well as shrimp salad croissants. Great views of Charleston!

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

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!

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
