Funny. When these guy's presented this project to the neighborhood association they claimed to want to be a 'neighborhood restaurant' with a 'small bar' and not go after the 'college drinking crowd'. It was also agreed that the St. Philip St. entrance would be an emergency exit and not be used as an entrance to keep noise down out of respect for the nearby homes. A bar adjacent to & surrounded by residences, no off-street parking, and open 'til 2 am...Bad precedent for any neighborhood. If one used the same arguments neighbors recently expressed about Burbage's which killed that deal, the double standard in Charleston is glaring. Beer & sandwiches 'til 7 pm 6 days a week is bad(South of Broad) but drinking 7 days a week til 2 am is OK(Elliotborough). The City made an effort to keep establishments(including this one) from staying open past 11 by changing the Zoning at the request of residents but it was killed by City Council fearing litigation.
If your budget includes taking straight pulls off of a $90 (and hard to find) bottle of 107-proof whiskey, you're a far wealthier man that I am, Mr. Moss.
Me? I'd savor it, probably over an ice cube... if someone else was buying!
In my experience there is no "standard" way to "how it is done down here." Undiluted hard liquor in this heat is a jam good time for some, hot death for others. Besides, at the insane prices Pappy has reached recently the best way to drink it is on someone else's dime
Oddly, I don't think that is how it is done down here. In my experience in the heat, people mostly drink their alcohol mixed with water or something else. Undiluted Hard liquor in this heat, even with food runs people down pretty fast. Different in the winter.
In addition to the aforementioned salmon colored shorts and ubiquitous boat shoes, may I also visualize the multiplicity of sunglasses-not-worn-at-night display methods?
It'll be a great place to escape the crowd, along with the crowd of other people escaping the crowd.
Visited last Sunday after a much too long sabbatical from the Beach. We ordered the Pork Belly BLT. WOW! All the flavors mingled together to form a wonderful tasting delight. Domestic draft was cold and welcomed in just a few minutes. Dogs are allowed on the patio, and the restaurant has dog bowls with ice for your canine friend. I kinda liked the fries, which I usually skip due to my overweighted frame. The experience was wonderful, and I'll go back soon. Walking down the beach is quite calming, and having a nice meal afterwards is a nice reward.
What a great idea. I hope the prices are not prohibitive, however. And, are there any provisions for parking, or will it be just curbside in the neighborhood? I don't think they have those stupid residential parking restrictions, but I bet it is coming. Great idea to have Charleston expanding in that direction. Gentrification is gonna happen, folks, and I hope the city fathers keep it from exploding. Still a bit dodgy when you get only a block or two away from there, so be careful at night when going to and from. And don't irritate the locals by pissing in their yards and trashing up the streets.
Love the new(ish) revitalization of that Borough!!
Interesting...asking about the size & the number of fries in an order? Sounds like you need to stick to the places that will "biggie" size it for you.
The burger is AMAZING here. Top notch. Loved the picked veggies too. Could eat a whole plate of those.
I'm so happy that this finally got passed. I like hanging out at the breweries much more than going to bars, as the atmosphere is cooler, and I know that my money is going directly to support the local beer scene. Cheers!
Approximately how big are the discs, brewengineer?
How many discs does one get per order?
So the fantastic, visionary architect saved the "glamorous copper" from the "grimy old bar" ? Eric, were you still too young to go to the old Johnson's, too hip, or are you just shilling BS for a new bar?
"The discs of fried potatoes sound very nice."
They are. Quite crunchy, too.
The discs of fried potatoes sound very nice.
Yeah, hope they can get to the point that they can hire someone so its not just the two of them doing it all
I just wish they would stay open past 8 pm. I would be there three+ nights a week during summer if I could eat at 8:30.. Surf til dark!
The Bottarga pizza is with out a doubt one of the best Ive ever had. Fell in love with it last year. I admit I have a total food crush on this place.
