The Cloister was originally established in 1928 as a family destination, but we fully understand that traveling with the whole clan warrants a drink, or two. Therefore, you can relax with a nice glass of wine or signature cocktail at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel's River Bar. Though it’s more of a restaurant than a bar, there is still a bar that where you can sit.
River Bar offers an extensive wine list, including Sea Island’s private label. You can also order up one of the beers on tap, as well as a few delicious Southern cocktails. Try the Mint Julep, concocted with Woodford reserve bourbon, fresh mint, sugar and crushed ice. Another particularly refreshing cocktail is the Front Porch Iced Tea, which is the traditional southern drink with a twist: vodka.
