The waiter, Jerry, and the view were the highlights of the visit. From there, it was all downhill. First, the prices were excessive. OK, it is a classy hotel, but $100 bottles of ordinary wine is uncalled for. Secondly, we ordered the $100 bottle of...More

JR made sure our lunch order was just right, thank you! We'll be back and tell our friends about this great rooftop bar.

We enjoyed the special cocktails and vibe of this rooftop bar in downtown Charleston at sunset. It's actually the pool bar for the Market Pavilion Hotel. It is as elegant as the hotel lobby and the first floor 225 Grill where we had dinner, too.

Came here really out of curiosity since it was mentioned in many travel articles.The downstairs lounge is very posh. I liked that they had the heating lamps for the cold January night. But the plastic barrier were foggy and didn't provide much of a view....More

This is a great place. Beautiful views of the bridge. Has variety of cocktails and some appetizers. Duck nachos were good. The waitress we had did not smile. If she did I would have given five stars..

A great location to drink, eat and watch the city. We were lucky to be there for the solar eclipse. It was a wonderful afternoon - one I will remember always.

The best view in Charleston! We loved having drinks on the roof top looking down on the city. A beautiful view of the most spectacular Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

I'm guessing but doubt if they take reservations for the Pavilion. You can check (ph. call) but when they have a big crowd you can still stand @ the bar until a table or seating opens up.
