Looking for the perfect place to socialize with friends and co-workers, or just need a somewhere to stop off while touring through Charleston? Here are four of the best Happy Hours that you can count on in The Holy City.
1. Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar (205 E. Bay)
Located just a stone’s throw from The Battery, Amen Street is the perfect stop over for a drink or quick bite to each after a mid-afternoon stroll. The owners have bypassed the temptation to plaster the walls with tacky sea flare, and have instead opted for a more intimate feel, with low lighting, oyster shell chandeliers and exposed brick walls adorned with Lowcountry-inspired artwork. The menu is stuffed with sustainable seafood options, offered at a reduced price during the 4-7pm Happy Hour, Monday-Thursday. A dozen oyster cost less than $10, and drinks start as low as $2 drafts, liquor at $3 and wine at $4.
2. Fish (442 King St.)
This Asian-Seafood fusion spot on King Street draws locals in with their small plates for $6. The Happy Hour runs every day of the week, from 4:30 to 7pm, with half-priced bottles of wine on Monday and Wednesday for any bottle under $90. Well liquor drinks are served at $4, and the friendly, creative staff have also be known to throw in their own personalize cocktails at Happy Hour prices.
3. O-Ku (463 King St.)
O-Ku has gotten some serious buzz ever since it opened its doors in 2010, and was immediately recognized by Esquire Magazine as one of the year’s Best New Restaurants. It has appeared on Open Table’s Top 100 two out of the past three years, and was voted “Charleston’s Best Sushi” by the readers of the local independent, Charleston City Paper. Happy Hour is Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 5-7pm, so be sure to mind that small window for your chance to get $3 off any specialty cocktail, half-priced bottles of saki and half-priced sushi. While the official Happy Hour is worth seeking out, O-Ku also offers half-priced bottles of wine every Sunday.
4. A.C.’s Bar & Grill (467 King St.)
Looking to bunker up in a pool hall, and take the edge off with cheap beer and a great burger? A.C.’s Bar & Grill was made for you. Happy Hour runs every day of the week from 4-7pm. A huge pull is the $2.25 Beer of the Month, along with drafts starting as low as $1.75 and house liquor drinks for $3. While you’re there, enjoy a game of pool while you scarf down some of Charleston’s best burgers and philly cheese steaks. When it comes to pub grub, A.C.’s is a heavy hitter with a friendly Happy Hour.
