The Bar

Open from 4pm to 11pm Sunday – Thursday and 4pm-12am Friday & Saturday.

Southern hospitality mandates that there are no strangers here.

If The Spectator Hotel is the place to be and to be seen, here is a place you can just be. Step inside and feel a delicious combination of the exuberance of the 1920s speakeasy and the ease of the Jazz Age. The Spectator’s bar is a place to gather, socialize and enjoy life. As you wind down your day, you’ll cherish the warm embrace of this intimate space.

Meet Our Bartender:

Emanating the nostalgic past time of the 1920s speakeasy and spirit of Charleston’s Historic District, cocktail artisan Allen Lancaster serves up hand-crafted libations packed with seasonal southern flair at the Spectator Bar. Lancaster’s cocktail program entails cleverly-named classic drinks with a modern flair, all reminiscent of the roaring decade. 


Join us this Thursday June 22nd from 5-7 PM during our Butler’s Bar Reception for specially curated cocktails with a special ode to Maker’s 46 whiskey.
