Even though our weekend getaway to Charleston started on the wrong foot, we ended up having a great time once we finally made it! Baker came home from school with the stomach virus the day before we were supposed to leave and the germs spread quick. I’ll spare the details, but it caused us to miss our flight Thursday morning! The lady at the ticket counter was kind enough to reschedule us for later that afternoon. We were not expecting any good luck after the night we had! Lol.
Once we arrived in Charleston at Midnight on Thursday, we headed straight to our hotel. We stayed at the Andrew Pinckney Inn in downtown! It’s a smaller boutique style hotel, but I was so impressed. Everything was updated, extremely clean and located near all the popular spots! They even offered breakfast and afternoon wine with cheese to all guests!
We hit the ground running on Friday with lunch at 82 Queen! They also have an amazing brunch, but it’s only offered on the weekends. Bo was in desperate need of new clothes, so we shopped along King Street afterwards! There are so many great men’s clothing stores. I had been wanting to visit Camellia’s inside Hotel Bennett, so we grabbed drinks before dinner! It is the most gorgeous bar with a dreamy pink aesthetic. We ended the night at The Darling Oyster Bar with delicious lobster rolls!
Saturday started with peach green teas at a local spot called The Rise Coffee Bar! We didn’t have it in us for coffee just yet. Haha! We ate brunch at Poogan’s Porch with the Fried Green Tomatoes and buttered biscuits! The appetizers were pretty filling, so Bo and I split the Diner Cheeseburger that was too good. We decided to take a Lyft to Folly Beach for the afternoon, and I just had to try dole whip at The Pineapple Hut!
Several recommended The Citrus Club for drinks, so we went to The Dewberry before dinner! There was an hour wait to get to the rooftop, but we decided to stick it out. They called our names right as we were leaving for our reservation, so we only stayed 10 minutes. I think it was a busy weekend but just a heads up if you’re wanting to visit! I personally think it was worth it!
Dinner was at Bourbon N’ Bubbles that Leva from Southern Charm owns. It was good, but I’m still SO sad we missed our Thursday reservation at Halls Chophouse! I wish I would have rescheduled for Saturday! It was my top recommendation from y’all. And being the Southern Charm fan that I am, I had to visit Sewing Down South! Unfortunately, I think I had just missed Craig and Paige. Lol! I’m leaving more recommendations for y’all to refer to below!
