Long weekend in charleston

My wife and I are planning to go on a long weekend in the charleston historic district in a couple of weeks. We're looking to go out for a nice dinner on night and the other nights to places that are a little less expensive but are still great. If anyone has ideas regarding bars that a couple of 28 year olds can have a good time, please let me know as well.

thanks!

When are you planning? All weekends if May will be extremely busy, due to college graduations, beginning of Spoleto, etc. You may find hotels and restaurants already booked. The link below gives some details.

I'm a little past 28 now, but have enjoyed Charleston nightlife for almost 20 years! Tommy Condon's is an Irish pub and does fun sing-alongs most nights. It is near the market. However, last time I was in town, we went to the north end of King Street (north of Calhoun Street) and found lots of wonderful restaurants and bars. We particularly liked the Cocktail Club and the rooftop bar across the street (name?). Or just ask any of the local college kids and they can give you an idea once you get there.

For dinner out, you may want to try and get reservations ASAP. Without them you may find that your only options are 5:30 or 9:30.

FIG, Anson, Hanks, High Cotton, SNOB, all good choices for your upscale dinner. There are lots of bars and restaurants on upper King that would be good for the other evenings.

You do need to check out reservations ASAP, availability may be slim at this time.

Close, endo. It's Stars Grill Room.

The restaurant has a nice retro vibe and the rooftop is fun. The people there looked 28-ish!
