Uncork is the perfect place to visit with friends. Great small plates, very nice wine selection available in 1, 3 or 6 oz self-service pours, and great drinks with excellent classic cocktails and some that are Uncork specialties. Even the live music was great. We...travel a lot and I don't know of anywhere that is better for spending time with friends in a relaxed environment. It has the friendliness of the local pub and the amenities of an upscale restaurant.More

Stopped in here to get a glass of wine while walking around. Ended up getting one of their craft cocktails instead...and a charcuterie board...and another craft cocktail! Their version of an old fashioned is outstanding! They use a house made red wine reduction instead of...simple syrup and a scorched orange peel that sets this drink and place apart. The staff was attentive and very nice when engaged in conversation. BTW, they have 40 bottles of wine on tap that you serve yourself if you so desire. Great place to stop and relax while enjoying Charleston!More

What a fantastic start to our long weekend getaway. The space has a great urban vibe. It was fun to try different wines. We ordered a cheese and charcuterie board, which was one of the best we've ever had. The exceptional service made this especially...memorable--everyone was friendly and helpful, yet gave us plenty of time to unwind and enjoy. Go--you won't be disappointed!More

For a relatively low sum, we purchased 2 hours of this wine bar. I purchased some food ahead (I should have ordered more) but people could order more as they saw fit. We had 28 people with the run of the house. Pouring one, 3...or 6 oz pours of wine was brilliant. Run of the house meant folks were able to walk around and chat with other members. The food was delicious and the wines better! We had a great time!More

We are visiting from NY and couldn’t have found a better place to relax and enjoy! It was the music that we heard from the street that originally brought us in. The atmosphere is gorgeous and we immediately took over one of the couch areas....The craft cocktails were extremely inventive, and we enjoyed the wine selection. We loved the self-serve aspect for we were able to do an extensive tasting. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, a delicious charcuterie board and the Oreo bomb for dessert. The staff was extremely knowledgable and welcoming. I highly recommend, and looking forward to returning.More
