Afternoon Tea | Downtown Charleston, Charleston

As colorful as its namesake flower, Camellias is Charleston’s premier Champagne Bar, featuring an extensive collection of bottle and by-the-glass offerings paired with a decadent selection of caviar, ceviche and tartare. Additionally, Camellias offers a champagne-inspired cocktail program and a collection of delectable desserts, including the signature Camellias Cake, and afternoon tea.

The bar’s stunning pink hue reflects a piece of Charleston history: marble that once clad the library building where Hotel Bennett stands. The marble was reclaimed, restored and now graces the bar and tabletops. The egg-shaped room design was inspired by the famous Faberge jewel boxes and features four pieces of art which depict the Camellia flower. Reflective finishes, including an etched-mirror ceiling and beautiful strings of crystal cascading from the chandelier, add both shimmer and style to the atmosphere.More

Discover Charleston

When you're in the historic port town of Charleston, you'll see an abundance of seafood. From the Low Country boils that include lobster and potatoes to shrimp and grits, there is a bit of everything for you to enjoy. Seafood restaurants are found on almost every corner and serve the freshest seafood possible as it's caught from the ocean on the same day in most cases. Another favorite dish that you'll find is fried chicken and waffles. Be sure to stop by one of the many souvenir stores in Charleston to get fresh fudge or a bag of saltwater taffy.
