A very pleasant spot to have a drink and a dip in the pool. JR is a great bartender. Luke and another young woman whose name I cannot remember (but remember she was from Tacoma, Washington) are very good servers as well.

We met friends for a drink on the rooftop bar. Beautiful view of Charleston! Some drinks were very expensive but most beer and wine prices were typical for an upscale place. Service was fine.

There is plenty of seating, and despite it being crowded on a Friday night, we managed to get a table very quickly. Our waiter was attentive and the service was fast as well... More

We were told to go here by friends. It's not the kind of place you go if you do not know where it is. It's in the same building as Grill 225 but on the roof. It was pleasant despite the heat. It was nice to be poolside on a roof on downtown Charleston. The service was great. There was... More

We were with another couple and had just seen a show and wanted to just have a night-cap, the Pavilion Roof Top Bar was recommended. The Hotel entrance is grand, typical historical vibe beautiful antique decor, very Gatsby inspired. I was impressed. The bar was on the roof top over looking market street. There's a roof top pool, very nice... More
