It is an absolute shit hole. Now they have a "dress code"??!! A blue collar bar trying to b upscale. Tracy did sell the place but they kept her name? The only positive: a couple hot bartenders.
This place rules! Great beers to try, free pretzels and very friendly bartenders. It's a very chill atmosphere and good for a nice conversation.
Great bar, great beers, great people. Great place to talk to friends over a beer without drowning in college testosterone.
If you are into heavy smoking and prefer to pick up women who rate a 5 or less out of 10, this is the place for you. I will say a couple of the bartenders were cool and did their job well. Otherwise, the place is analogous to the quality of the set of teeth of the average woman who goes there.
They have 4pool tournaments a week lots of fun
Always a good time on Fri or sat fun place to drink dance or listen to live music
Good burgers and Good craft beer.. What else is needed?
We had all Of medical school here and they treated us like crap- we brought them business and they even kicked one of us out because he "touched" an empty keg by the bathroom apparently "depressurized" it when he first got here. The service is terrible, watch out! Bad experience.
New owners, not Tracey anymore......now its not a good place anymore, save your money, go somewhere else!!!
The male bartender was awesome and he took over in the case of the negligence and rudeness of the female bartender. The female bartender was just plain nasty. She took an order from a guy standing right next to me when i clearly was before him then when i tried to get her attention she yelled "you have to wait a aminute" and served two more customers before me. I asked for Grenadine which they had in a bottle and she grabs a tray of cherries from the holder and poured the juice right in my drink. The other bartender made me a fresh drink but still :-P Also Karaoke Chris was rude. When It was my turn to sing on the Mic. Im an African american female and there was one african american male in the building and I guess it was Chris friend and said on the mic "hey man I couldn't tell the difference between you two" and started laughing to his underlying racial joke. But with my beautiful self i stole the show and he shut up. But Its a shame that 2014 I had was witness to ignorance of this sort in my own hometown. And I will definitely let the world know!!!!!
I have not had the pleasure of dining there yet, but will tell you that each of the six or so times I have been, I have been able to hear my friends talking, which is uncommon in most of the bars on upper King Street. Sitting back Saturday night and watching a good looking defense end looking Charleston boy show off his shag moves to his girl was just wonderful. You could tell, his mother taught him well. Other your me tried to free style to "Carolina Girl", which just did not cut it with their ladies or the crowd. Girls gathered and swayed, waiting for a guy to come and ask them to shag. They were pretty and the guys just did not get it. That was sad. However, the other fellow stole the floor and he knew it.
Being able to see the jazz guys that used to play at Mistral from afar is awesome and I would never think that I would have seen that in a bar on Upper King Street. Even DJ Matt Todd was setting up as I was leaving, who could often be heard at LIGHT, Peter Evans' place down the street (of Stella Nova fame..) He will nail what the crown and the bar wants - and keeping it on the low key and not loud side will continue to be a pay off for this place.
Finally, NICE ladies at the entrance to meet you, greet you, and help you get a table and identify if you want food service or just drinks. Nice to have someone paying attention to you in a lovely way at the door - the way that it should be.
Groundhog Day concert - I didn't know what to expect but the entire show was outstanding. It really showcased the quality and strength of the local music scene here in Charleston.
The Music Hall facility is hands down the best venue for concerts if you want to hear and see the artists.
Went here on Sat. for some beers and listen to some music .Not sure where this band came from (The Cubes), but all I can say is "Wow" !!! Rock music the way it should be played. Very tight band with a 60's flair, hope they play here at Tracey's again, cause I come here often and live close.
FIVE STARS***** Warren Haynes Band! The best show ever put on at the Music Hall. Vibe was spot on with high energy. Sound was wonderful if not perfect. He may have is own sound man. A Great place to see shows. A sound man can make or break a show.
Would like to see other shows at Charleston Music Hall
I agree with Mr Silver, this venue has sounded awesome for any show I've attended until this past October REK show. It was terrible. It was all bass and no vocals and we were in a primo front center balcony spot. I'm going to another show soon and hope the sound's not that bad.
Great location, not a bad seat in the house
But The Sound Board Is The Worst I've Heard Maybe He Just Doesn't Like Bluegrass Or Folk. The sound man can make or break a venue
I CAN'T GO BACK TO THE TORTURE
This bar is just plain great! Very relaxing
Filthy, tasteless, vulgar.
Bear Down! In town for business, this Chicago style sports bar is a must see!
