Walking that brick hallway to the Upper Deck always inspires us to strike a pose like an American Apparel model. We've had a hunch those female models like to make out with each other off camera. They're always hanging out in spandex or underpants. Jokes aside, girl barflies at the Upper Deck like to make out with each other too. This uncompromising King Street dive bar is a socially-designated "safe zone" for Charleston's LGBT community. The Upper Deck hosts live music and karaoke. Come as you are, Kurt Cobain grungy, and drink up to same-sex PDA.
