Absolutely wonderful bar. The cocktails were out of this world. Fresh ingredients, unique combinations and great atmosphere. I had the Big Tito (a strawberry, basil cosmo) and a Pearachute....so yummy! Only spent the weekend in Charleston, and had to go into the Squeeze both nights! Will never visit Charleston again without stopping in here for their unique and appetizing cocktails. Also, the bartenders (Marc and Brian were there the nights I went) are VERY personable and pleasing to be around. Patrons varied from college age (well behaved) to business people. If you are looking for a great cocktail experience go to The Squeeze. Happy Hour on the weekend was from 5-8. Prices were mid-range but well worth it! You get MORE than what you pay for at The Squeeze.

The name was a bit of a deterrent. Since I am no longer an undergrad, I worried that this place would be too noisy and have other issues associated with places that cater to a more energetic crowd. While they did have music, and there were many younger people, the service and drinks were very good.

I tried two martinis that were part of a “series” the bartenders are apparently developing. Perhaps “mixologist” is more appropriate, but they did not seem like the type of guys who needed title affirmation. The drinks incorporated black cherry, but were not super sweet concoctions for people who want to mask the alcohol. Both drinks were very flavorful and well planned. I’m usually a dry martini person and this was comparably appreciable.

The seating was comfortable and the atmosphere was also nice. It’s on a row of bars so if you don’t like it, next door on either side there are other options. I am fairly confident though that you will like it.

This is a very cool Bar. It is very narrow, per the name. The drinks were very good, I had the Squeeze Cosmo(it was made with their grilled Lemon infused Vodka) which was so good. The service was excellent. Very fun place to hang out!

Love this place!! Narrow bar with old charm. Lots of reclaimed wood. Cocktails are spectacular. The bartender was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Be prepared to pay high end prices, but you get what you pay for-a spectacular drink.
