Friday Five: Svelte Sips
Swank new cocktail bars are popping up all over town. Here’s a round-up of fabulous places to enjoy a libation in Charleston and one that’s a little further afield.
1-The Cocktail Club-479 King St. Charleston: Enjoy a handcrafted cocktail in one of the three unique lounges. Original beams and doors factor into the interiors in this circa 1881 building.
2-Suede Supper Club-816 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. Mt. Pleasant: This vast restaurant, bar and nightclub offers lush VIP rooms. Velvet ropes included.
3-J. Paulz-1739-Maybank Hwy. James Island: “Bringing life to Maybank Highway” with tapas, sushi, and infused cocktails in an upscale atmosphere.
4-The bar at HUSK-76 Queen St. Charleston-Enjoy a classic cocktail in this freestanding bar next to the renowned restaurant. The cozy second floor lounge features original exposed brick walls and rough-hewn ceiling beams.
5-BAR7, Studiestræde 7, 1455, Copenhagen, Denmark. I couldn’t resist including this unexpected find where we stopped for lunch in an very cool interior.
Mr. H says: Friends don’t let friends hang out in ugly interiors-Enjoy!
