“Squeeze In”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

As my husband said, as we sat down at the bar in Squeeze, "thank goodness cocktails are making a comeback!". If you are into cocktails, this is the temple. Squeeze is a long, very narrow, beautiful bar. If there is an esoteric bourbon or rye whiskey, Squeeze has it, as well as an amazing number of vodkas, gins and specialty liquors. The bartenders are true professionals, mixing the perfect cocktail with perfect efficiency, all the while making perfect small talk. I can't speak to the food here, but a stop for a drink is a must. Be forewarned.....they open at 5pm....ish.

“An adult bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

Happened by just before 5pm and noticed that people were waiting on the sidewalk for Squeeze to open. I now know why! Bartenders are fantastic, great live music, drinks were creative. A fun place for grownups!

“Nice place- good bartender!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013 via mobile

First I'd have to say the ambiance was very nice, live music and comfortable bar stools, the place was filled with out of towners. The bartender was very accommodating and the drinks were very good! The reason for not giving it a 5... well compared to some of the other bars- where the drinks are like nothing you have ever tasted before, this place just doesn't compare! But over-all it is a very nice bar, and the selection of bourbons was unbelievable!

“Great atmosphere, cool bartenders, interesting drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2013

Advertised as the tightest bar in Charleston and that is no joke. It is like a wide hallway and is tucked away among some average bars. Glad we went in because the place is very chill and the bartenders were great. They joked around with us, answered questions, made suggestions, and made amazing drinks.
