The Bar Old

The exuberance of the Jazz Age meets warm Southern charm in our Prohibition-style bar. Make yourself comfortable on a green leatherback stool, allow our cocktail artisan to conjure up a 1920s inspired refreshment, and indulge in a sophisticated selection of bar food like you’ve never experienced before—all at our debonair Charleston hotspot. The Bar also serves fine wine and beer.
