Good place to relax if you don't want to go far from your hotel. Great drinks and good food. The bartenders were very nice, and easy to talk with. I would go here again.

We stopped in around 5 on Friday, thirsty after walking for several hours.We loved the view, but I am not sure we could have felt more unwelcome. Stan, our server seemed almost annoyed that we were there. Looking at the reviews of the... More

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

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.
