Enter a portal into a studio/gallery vibrating with passion and consciousness from the core! Finally "its" arrived in Charleston... and on Broad Street!!!!!
Prepare to be enlightened at this fabulous studio...what a treat...thanks Atmah Ja for setting up shop here!
Saw this on opening night. Definitely as good as I remember Cirque being
grab a coffee and pastry and hit the beach, my sunday morning thing. I wish I lived on SI so I could stop there on weekdays as well.
Good beer and attractive location. It can get a little hot in there, but that is the norm in a small production facility. I am predicting an updated 5 star review in the near future.
Wonderful space for an event. Went to a Guerrilla Cuisine dinner there a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at how pretty the distillery hardware looks with the right lighting and how warm and comfortable the space was - especially for a warehouse and work site, at that (the bathrooms are a literally shining example). A few strategically placed pieces of art (big works well) and beautifully set tables were all that was needed to transform what would be a cavernous area in the back into a really cool, even elegant, venue. I know others worked hard to make that transformation and I WAS under the influence of some fabulous food, but the end result of GC & others' efforts highlighted the possibilities of the distillery space itself. The Striped Pig people proved very hospitable folks, dedicated to their craft and eager to share the process & results with willing fans. Sampled some powerful but oddly delicious moonshine & a more finished product. It is obvious that a great deal of thought went into making this space a welcoming place to hang out, whether for an event or just a visit.
Great variety, good prices. What brings me back is the friendly staff and and helpful service.
Tehn maybe you should go back to New York.
This will be my second time visiting Middleton Gardens and I can't wait. I intend to use Omega Transportation as my ride ( since I can save 10% on a round trip) and I will tour the gardens after the demonstrations. I know the gardens will be beautiful this time of year. And I won't have to fight the traffic, so I am really excited.
@Timmons, my first thought too. why would they need seats? Also, too much of a liquor selection? I have never heard of such a thing. Bottles is a great addition to Mt P and I will surely do most of my wine and liquor shopping there.
I've been there three times and welcome their selection to East Cooper in general. I didn't get to the Grand Opening, but was there just after the soft opening and since. It isn't Total Wine, but then it is a third the size and actually in my (work) neighborhood. I would say that wine diversity is their area of least strength and the "beyond too large" liquor selection certainly could have been sacrificed a bit to this end. However, I certainly had no trouble finding something nice in the bourbon department. Local Terrapure FTW!
The growler station is plentiful; I've been able to find a good price on whatever kind of wine or beer I was seeking, and the staff is legitimately friendly and helpful up to and including recommendations.
@Mr. Connoisseur, Esquire: I have to take exception to the comment about egress from Moultrie Plaza, though... there's a traffic light for left turns, three other exits for right turns, a side street to cut over to Shem Creek. Heck, I'm sure you could land a helicopter in that lot if that's what the problem was. Between that and the seating comment, you lost me.
So when did they have 2 "Grand" Openings? They had what in the world of retail is called, a "soft" opening a few weeks before. But I only saw and heard of 1 Grand Opening. And I agree with nofaith, lawyers should stay out of liquor stores on their lunch breaks... And their beer selection is pretty good. They don't have room yet for singles, but I was told that would be in the near future as well.
Great addition to East Cooper. Hate making the trek to West Ashley's Total Wine.
Ok, ok. After discussions with many about my review, maybe i overreacted. maybe i was the one having the bad day and i did the same thing that i myself complained about and took it out on an undeserving party. I am giving 4 stars to even out to a 2.5 star rating. Jerks was probably a little too strong and it's really only one person who has rubbed me the wrong way so it's not fair to group the entire store in that light. I will maintain that the level of service i have recieved on many occasions was disheartening. I will maintain that their selection is incredible. And let's be serious, I will still go to some of those beer dinners because the quality, menu, and value is exceptional. Also, i wish i had an alias on citypaper website and not my name...haha
I was there and loved the performace. It was VERY hot though! - JA
I disagree with the above review. 52.5 is a great, funky, local place to poke around in and see what you can come up with. i have found some great obscure records in the 25cents bin and some fun nostalgic bday presents for friends. Its not a place to find everything that you are looking for, but something you never thought to find.
I'm an olive oil freak, and this shop fills the bill quite nicely! I picked up the Picual oil. Apparantly, this olive will have an extremely limited pressing this season. Get it while you can!
We arrived early and enjoyed watching the various events and then the parade. We left after that and it seems like it was a good thing to leave then from the reviews I have read. When we left there was about 1,000 cars parked and more were coming in. Glad we got there early and left early.
Let me 1st say, the doctors are nice. Of course you will have to wait until they call u back. Prepare yourself for 1hr and a half to 2 hrs if you have something plannned or have to work. The front desk are not so welcoming, particularly the black lady. She is rude, does not smile and does not greet you at all. Looks like she ate something bad and decided to take it out on the pregnant lady. She talks so low that you have to ask her to repeat herself and she gets an attitude with you. I've seen her treat the other patients like this, so at least it not me. It makes the visit very uncomfortable. No southern hospitality with this lady. So if you're ok with the wait and want to be disrespected then this is the place.
THE SHOW WAS GREAT, BUT WHEN WE BOUGHT VIP TICKET WE WERE TOLD THAT YOU WILL GET TWO DRINK & SOMETHING TO EAT. EVERYONE AT THE EVENT AT DUMP DUMP LIKE THEY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS. I THANK THEY SHOULD REFUND SOME MONEY OR GIVE THOSE PEOPLE A DISCONT ON THERE NEXT TICKET THEY WON'T GET AGAIN I WILL RAISE HELLLLLL.
