Contemporary American | Downtown Charleston, Charleston

One of the coolest bars ever!!!!.....you can quite literally have your own "Bourbon Tasting" event there...trying several rare and hard to find bourbons not featured in most places.....as they offer either a 1 or 2 ounce pour.....that said... my wife and I tried several different bourbons with a 1 ounce pour.....until we honed our selection for the evening down to one.....and then ordered "two fingers" of that....*Also we had planned this tasting in advance....and figured we'd simply order a few appetizers for our meal.....which is exactly what we did....our recommendation for appetizers would be their Duck Confit Spring Rolls.....and their cheese plate.....both were awesome!!!....Also our wait staff was perfect....If you like hip bars....good food.... and rare bourbon......it's the best place in town!

Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown Charleston, Charleston

We had a fabulous dining experience at Sorghum & Salt - in fact, this was our best dinner during our entire stay in Charleston. We sat at the Chef's Counter and did the tasting menu and wine pairing. The dishes were innovative, and delicious. Christian is an extremely creative and talented chef. We highly recommend doing the tasting menu / wine pairing, as it gives you a chance to talk to the chef, owner and entire staff, and try excellent wines you will have difficulty finding anywhere else. Sorghum & Salt is a must for anyone who loves great food and wine, local sourcing and fun conversation. More

Juju
Juju
American | Mount Pleasant, Charleston

The concept for Ju Ju was developed as a result of years of extensive travel and business dealings throughout the West Indies. The sensory pleasures of the region could best be captured by offering a venue with unique and authentic Caribbean flavors, ambiance, aesthetics, and sounds. The menu was developed by the owners in concert with culinary personnel from Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
We believe that eating isn't just about feeding your body. It's about nourishing the soul, too. And life is too short for mediocre soul food. We make sure every dish that we serve satisfies your entire being. Crispy, savory, sweet, juicy, satisfying. Whatever you crave is what we want to serve.More
