Located on Morrison Drive just a short bike ride or drive from the heart of Charleston's entertainment and bar scene, The Royal American has had no trouble attracting a crowd following since its opening in late 2011. Boasting a popular outdoor deck and an interior space that's festive and worn in just the right places, regulars come to The Royal American for a comfortable, no-frills atmosphere, and regularly scheduled live music. Vintage-style string lights and band posters adorn the walls behind the small stage area, so anyone can catch a great view of the show from any stool or standing spot at this happy dive. Beers are cheap, and live music typically costs just $5 - $10 as a cover charge.
- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: The Royal American makes for a great hang out spot on the weekdays after work just as much as any weekend night, affordable and comfortable.
- Best for Live Music Because: The Royal American is a restaurant, bar and live music venue all in one laid-back environment, and worth a visit for a cheap local show.
- Best for Bars Because: A step up from your typical dive bar, this laid-back spot is perfect for a simple night out on a budget.
