We came here for some drinks and live music. I have been here a few times since my last review and it was time to write a new one. Fun, informal atmosphere and live music. Bartenders could be friendlier, but it's a nice place to...More

Husband and I were looking for live music and this was recommended by a local. Band was supposed to start at 9:00, but still hadn't started by 10:00, and didn't appear to be in a rush to get started. We had planned to catch an...More

We came into town for wedding anniversary, but it just so happened that my favorite band was playing at a place called The Royal American. They aren't widely known so I wasn't sure what kind of venue they would be playing. When we got to...More

My man and I hit the Royal after going downtown for a "fancy" dinner. This bar is dark and cozy. A great place for a nightcap. If your looking for classy then this bar is not for you. They have great late night snacks....

No trip to the downtown Charleston area would be complete without a side trip to this great quirky fun bar. The decor is eclectic - from rustic hewn shutters in the ceiling to lamps made of old plumbing hardware. They have a great outdoor "veranda"...More

They've done a great job with this local watering hole! I've been many times since they first opened, but have recently started really appreciating their menu. I seem to always get a bag of beef jerky regardless if I'm just in for a drink and...More
