After doing a little research on my laptop, I decided that this place met my requirements for a quick, inexpensive bite, where I could go casual. On top of that, I was thinking beer and the list here is quite extensive. My server, Amy, helped...More

Reccommended by the hotel, it was ok, nothing special, service was good, food was served hot, and tasted fine. Nothing really jumps out to make this place special.

We do not have a designated free parking lot, but you can usually find parking on the streets nearby. There is also a paid parking lot directly behind the restaurant that should have space available. See you soon!

Closed for Business is Charleston’s first dedicated tap room, with 42 taps, featuring many of Charleston’s best home-grown brews. The menu is Bavarian-inspired, highlighting our spin on traditional dishes served in bars & pubs in southern Germany, along with some American classics. We aren’t your standard bar; within our carefully curated walls our knowledgeable staff is dedicated to providing our guests with a casual, yet polished experience that hopefully introduces them to a world of beer they didn’t know existed. We do not take reservations of any kind and operate on a first come-first serve basis.
