Local Expert Nightlife Recommendations
About Charleston, SC Nightlife
Whether you're visiting Charleston, South Carolina as a regular or for the first time, you'll find that Charleston is worth getting to know at night just as much as its sunnier hours. The Holy City is one of variety, its walkable streets lined with excellent late night restaurants, bars, clubs and live music suitable for every level of nighttime enthusiasm. Most Charleston bars are centered around the Market Street and Upper King Street areas, though many fall just outside of these popular hangouts.
Combine your party plans with bowling at The Alley, or HoM, if you're feeling competitive enough for a game of ping pong. Local LGBT and friends head to Pantheon on the weekends for the wildest club experience in Charleston, with Mynt a close second in terms of dancefloor setting and club music. Those in search of a starlit roooftop evening should seek out Stars on Upper King, while others looking to keep things more low key will revel in the craft beer focused Bay Street Biergarten and Closed for Business.
