Thought the vibe was great, but would not recommend for an intimate date night! Way too loud to converse.

What a stellar dining experience. Personable bartenders. Attentive waitress. Perfect wine pairing with each course.

Service was quite poor. Ordered the wine pairing, out apps were taking a long time so we requested our wine. Well our apps came and it was at least 10 min before our wine finally arrived. Everything was slow. Yes it was restaurant week but it was also later in the evening. The deviled eggs tasted good but were small, nothing else on the plate and my friend had a lot of extra bacon on her plate I had barely any on my egg let alone my plate. Very tasty steak entree and dessert very chunky wine portions. Not a good value at all and it was very very loud. Don’t plan to go back.

Beautiful restaurant, amazing food and service, just a little too loud and since we booked for our anniversary it would have been nicer to be sat away from the bar in a quieter spot.

You are seated around the wall around the bar so as the night went on and more folks came to the bar the noise level was too high to have a nice dinner. My steak was cool at best and not very flavorful but cooked to my liking. Deviled eggs for an appetizer were fantastic and the key lime pie was awesome. Glad I tried it but wouldn’t come back for dinner, just drinks

We liked it but the bottle of Shramsberg Blanc de Blanc we had tasted very old compared to the bottles we get through their wine club, too old to be sold at a restaurant at a 100% marked up price. Don’t get the “adult milkshake” because it’s not a milkshake it’s just cream with liquor in it. The music they were playing was really good and the interior lamps were so pretty. Our server knew a lot about bourbon and was very educational.

I love the ambience at Bourbon and Bubbles. I usesally go relatively early and sit at one of the tables at the long banquette in the bar.
It is often quieter and easy to converse with friends.
The food is excellent -- creative without innumerable ingredients added to the menu. The service friendly and prompt without feeling pressured.

Sweet discovery in Charleston. Well worth the Uber ride from downtown. Guaranteed you will never be disappointed. Chic interior, great menu and bar setup. One small complaint, our table was directly under the air conditioning vent, we were frozen!

Note that it was Restaurant Week so we could choose that menu ($40 for three courses) or the standard menu.

The smiling and professional host seated us quickly. Very interesting, fun decor.

The waitress and bartender told us they would tag-teamed us (a good thing, two Laurens).

I asked for a Buffalo Trace old-fashioned to start, explaining that I like the cherry and orange muddled, two light dashes of chocolate bitters (they have Aztec; not as good as Angostura), bourbon, ice, and a pik with 2 more cherries. It was well prepared, but had a touch too much bitters in it.

My friend chose two appetizers, the deviled eggs, followed by the duck confit rolls.

I started with the winter salad with pickled onion slices, dried apricot and champagne vinaigrette (thank you for bringing this dressing back) and Marconi almonds; it was AWESOME.

My friend’s deviled eggs were “loaded” and the crispy bacon made them “great”, vs. average.

Second Course: My friend’s Duck Confit Rolls: The sauce was good, but we would have preferred thinner rolls with more duck, and less “stuffing”.
My Filet - Nice thick cut of beef, sliced after it had rested, expertly seasoned and prepared! Fingerlings were nicely roasted and the side baby carrots were excellent. (Not sure why green squash?)

The chocolate martini that my friend chose as “dessert” was expertly prepared and she enjoyed it immensely.
My Dessert: Taking a summer “fair” norm to a whole new level, Matt Greene, the chef, created a phenomenal offering... funnel cake fries lightly dusted in confectioners sugar with two dipping sauces: chocolate and coconut caramel. It brought back so many fun memories and was wow, AGAIN, just WOW! Simple, but awesome.

Date night with my husband. Great place for an extraordinary beverage. Loved the Charleston 75! Two bars- one for bourbon and one for sparkling drinks. What a marriage of tastes! The food was special, extra points for presentation. We had the restaurant week special and were not disappointed. You must get the Funnel Cake fries. Absolutely the best dessert out there! Can’t wait to go back.

We went to Bourbon N Bubbles for my husbands birthday. From the second we walked in we were impressed with the overall concept, ambience, and friendly staff. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was special, and the food was fantastic. Would 100% recommend it, and we are looking forward to our next trip to Charleston, we will definitely be back.

It was a decent evening but I do not feel the urge to come back. The service was okay, I almost felt like I was inconveniencing them. For a bourbon bar you’d thing they would pay attention to my drinks. Sat without service for quite some time. The food was decent but not something extraordinary. Value was definitely not there.

Terrific service, bourbon flight options were great, food was exquisite. Lauren was attentive, professional and very helpful as were other servers. Checked in on us, but not too intrusive. Bartender was informative as well. Old Fashion was one of the better ones I have had in awhile. Thank you for a great evening of drinks and dinner.

Awesome place: great service, varied menu, comfortable surroundings and casual ambiance, extensive and quality bourbon selections, and wonderful food. Our only issue was why we had such a hard time getting a reservation - having to schedule at least an hour earlier than we wanted - when there were only two other people in the entire restaurant when we arrived, and the place was still only half full when we left 1.5 hours later. Overall, great place -

First, it's important to note that Bourbon 'N" Bubbles is one of what will eventually be 3 restaurants sharing a building fronting the Hyatt House/Hyatt Place hotel that is part of the revitalization referred to as "Upper King." If you are a connoisseur of bourbon or champagne, Bourbon 'N' Bubbles will be right up your alley as multiple "flights" of each are offered at a reasonable price and served very professionally. While the food is quite good, the alcohol really is the star here and, personally, I think Bourbon 'N' Bubbles works best as either a pre- or post-theater/concert (the Charleston Music Hall is not far away) venue. Order an appetizer or two and a "flight" for a pleasant way to begin or end a classy night. That said, their chocolate mousse cake is like a cross between ice cream and cheesecake -- wonderfully decadent!

I will definitely be visiting Bourbon n Bubbles next time I’m in Charleston! My fiancé and I made reservations to grab a drink and some light bites before a later dinner reservation. When we saw the menu and our server told it was Happy Hour and appetizers were BOGO we ordered 4 things! They were all amazing! The charcuterie board blew us away! We also had the deviled eggs and each got the butternut squash soup. They made a delicious mock tail for me since I am pregnant and my fiancé enjoyed a bourbon flight. Service was excellent and the bar is beautiful!

Bourbons N' Bubbles have become one of my favorite cocktail restaurants to enjoy friends and drinks. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the staff is friendly. The restaurant manager Rachel is outstanding, knowledgeable and very personable!
Bourbon N' Bubbles just celebrated their 1 year anniversary with complimentary champagne all night and passed hors d'oeuvres... It was a fun and memorable event! Thank you BNB for hosting!!
Shout out to the server Lauren who took care of our table throughout the evening given the crowd and demands for service!
