We are excited to announce our Upper King Street Pub Tour coming to the popular Upper King area of downtown Charleston. We couldn’t be happier to add this tour to our repertoire. The Upper King Street area has been taking the city by storm ever since more bars and restaurants started opening up there about 10 years ago. Now, this trendy portion of King Street is the place to be and be seen. So we can’t wait to take our customers on a tour of the cool, new establishments in the north part of town.
The Upper King Street Pub Tour will focus on Charleston’s seedy and sordid history. We’ll discuss prohibition, bootlegging and the old speakeasies. Learn about the sultry history of Charleston’s brothels and the city’s crime and torture while sipping on a craft beer or a glass of wine.
We’ll visit Charleston Beer Works, 492, Smoke BBQ and Prohibition. The tour will start on the front steps of the Charleston Visitors Center. The tour is from 4-6:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and costs $25 (not including alcohol).
Charleston Beer Works has a laid back vibe focused on cold beer, good food and sports. This is a great place to meet and watch a Saturday football game in the fall. The beauty of 492 is definitely different from the atmosphere at Charleston Beer Works. This classic restaurant/bar has an upscale quality, yet maintains a friendly and welcoming environment. You’ll want to try a mixed drink here and maybe one of the delicious appetizers.
Next on the tour is Smoke BBQ with a hard rock décor theme and divine barbecue. The bar is comfortable and familiar – like you’ve been there a 100 times even if it’s your first visit. Lastly, Prohibition is a great place to talk about, well, prohibition, of course. The selection at Prohibition is vast. This place has everything you could ask for in beer, cocktails and wine. Enjoy culinary delights and fine live music. The restaurant’s theme: Prohibition celebrates the bacchanalian decadence of the 1920s.
