Charleston's best seafood, Balao offers fresh local ingredients in a casual setting. Offering indoor and outdoor seating around our rooftop cocktail bar, this local hidden gem stems from pop-ups, passion for the ocean, incredible local resources, and sharing the incredible fun & freshness found at sea. Welcome to Balao.
The term “Blind Tiger” was coined in the late 1800’s to describe the illicit drinking and gambling establishments opening their doors as temperance legislation swept across the country. The first “Blind Tigers” in South Carolina sprung up in the Holy City in 1893 as a defiant rebuttal to the “Dispensary” laws mandated by the infamous Governor Ben “Pitchfork” Tillman.
Local lore suggests Broad Street was home to many houses of “ill repute” throughout the years. In 1992, ninety-nine years after the first “Blind Tigers” appeared, the “Blind Tiger Pub” opened in its current location, paying homage to a historic tradition.
Despite changing hands several times throughout the years, the Blind Tiger Pub has always remained a fixture of Charleston society. In 2016, after painstaking restoration, the “Blind Tiger Pub” was reborn. Striving to continue to honor the legacy of its previous caretakers, we invite you to join us in celebrating this Charleston institution.More

To pair with our extensive beverage offerings, we proudly serve a full GASTROPUB style menu. Signature items include delicious Scotch Egg, handmade Bavarian Pretzel & Beer Cheese Fondue, old fashioned double-stacked, bacon-crusted Dispensary Burger, and the best Chicken & Waffles in the South, certain to soak up ANY appetite!

Discover Mount Pleasant
With its home-style cooking and Southern hospitality, you're sure to feel welcome in Mount Pleasant. Located on the Atlantic Coast, the city is rich in naval history with plenty of museums and restored ships to tour, but the real star of this South Carolina locale is the comfort food. Spend a leisurely brunch eating biscuits and gravy, fried green tomatoes, or shrimp and grits. The city's location on the East Coast means that you can get plenty of fresh seafood like crab soup, oysters, and flounder. The atmosphere at many of Mount Pleasant's most popular restaurants is casual and fun, so bring the whole family to enjoy lobster rolls, scallops, or a slice of tart key lime pie. If seafood's not your thing, there are great Greek, burger, Mexican, and steak options.
