I brought my 21 year old niece and her friend and my sister in law here on 2 separate occasions and everyone loved it for the views as well as the hip atmosphere.

We went to The Pavillion Bar at lunchtime on a rather blustery day last week. Warmly and professionally welcomed upon our arrival we were allowed to select our own table and managed to get one suitable for the views afforded. Very nice polite waitress who looked after us very well and was full of smiles. My wife and I had... More

Best rooftop bar in Charleston! A bit pricey but the best views! Good food and great service! I highly recommend at least stopping for a drink!

This pool is small but very nice and a perfect place to have a drink, relax and even grab some food while you take in the view.

Was recommended for a nice rooftop cocktail. Had a nice view of Charleston and a big seating area. We were there at the end of the night so it might be more impressive during a sunset, but it was a fun way to finish. Drinks and dessert menu was decent. Pricey but that's to be expected. Worth going for a... More

The Pavillion Bar is a fun stop on a night out in Charleston. We got a table in the back and had a drink before we moved onto the next stop.

You do not have to be a guest of the hotel to go up to the bar - so do it! The view of the Ravenel bridge is amazing. We just had drinks but you can get dinner.

The pavilion bar is on top of the market Pavilion Hotel. The location gives you a chance to have a southern style lunch and the view of a beautiful southern city.

We finished off our afternoon downtown with cocktails and it was perfect! The atmosphere is relaxed yet a bit luxurious with the pool and so many patrons in typical Charleston cocktail attire. The mojitos were perfect and the shrimp & filet appetizers we got were delicious (albeit a little small). Drinks and food are quite pricey but we're glad we... More
