If you’re looking for a refreshing cocktail before dinner or simply want a slightly less formal room in which to dine — one that offers you lovely harbor views, no less — you can head straight to Charleston’s bar. Located just to the right of the entrance, the windowed room features a long, handsome wood-topped bar flanked by floral padded stools with seat backs. Take your pick from the many spirits lining the wooden shelves behind the bar, or claim one of the cozy orange chairs at the smaller cocktail tables. It’s the ideal setting for enjoying libations like the Southern classic, the One Mint Julep, prepared with Knob Creek and housemade mint syrup, a traditional Kir Royale, or opt for one of the restaurant’s signature drinks:, we especially liked the refreshing Harbor East Martini, made with Grey Goose l’Orange vodka, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, sparkling wine and orange, peach and lime juices.
