“Mixologists dream bar”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Freshly squeezed juices to order. The bar has a great key code, so you can easily get exactly what you like. The bartenders are cool and friendly. Love the Bell of Jalisco cocktail. Yum.

“Craft Cocktails ”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

I spent hours contemplating the Amaro collection while enjoying a series of excellent drinks from an adventurous menu. The bartenders were attentive and the crowd lively but not rowdy.

“The place for handcrafted cocktails and great atmosphere”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

If you are looking for that special place to have an after-dinner drink after one of those good Charleston meals, step into the Belmont. Sophisticated atmosphere and handcrafted cocktails make it an excellent place to go. The staff is knowledgeable and passionate about mixology, and their access to fine ingredients is extensive.

“Great Cocktails. Great Service.”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

We have really started seeking out place that sell Hand Crafted Cocktails. This place fits that definition completely.

The bartenders wear white shirts with small black ties. Makes you think of the 40's & 50's cocktail place.They have a drink menu of original takes on the old standards. They are also willing to make your favorites with a twist.

If you want a Craft Cocktail with some ambiance, give this place a try.

“Excellent cocktails”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

The Tiger Paw sour is to die for. Think Amaretto sour but better. Great speakeasy for after dinner cocktails. Brad is very knowledgeable. Tell him what you like and he'll concoct something fabulous!
