The 4 Best Happy Hour Specials In Charleston

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.

Bachelor Party In Charleston: What To Do on Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island

If you are coming to Charleston for a bachelor party and need to make a plan, consider staying at Isle of Palms or Sullivan’s Island and enjoy the leisure that both offer in one trip.

It’s time to celebrate with the guys. Your friend has finally popped the question, but there’s still time for one more party before he gets the ole ball and chain. Charleston, SC is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and promises a good time for bachelors looking to relax and take in the town. With houses for rent on Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms, you can enjoy the beach, have your beer and drink it, too. Below are some suggestions from Marquee Limo Company about what to see and do while in Charleston.

1. The Windjammer On Isle of Palms

The Windjammer has been a Charleston area staple since the early 1970’s, that gained a reputation for its “anything goes” atmosphere for locals and tourists alike who enjoyed bikini contests and beach volleyball while holding a cold one. It soon became a premier spot for regionally and nationally touring bands, and while IOP has become more reserved (no more drinking on the beach), The Windjammer continues to be a bar where you feel like a local beach bum as soon as you walk in. There’s an open dance floor with a stage that still hosts rising local and national talent, and bartenders with plenty of stories from “back in the day.” The Windjammer still hosts bikini contests and is renowned for its outdoor beach volleyball court. Grab a beer bucket and bring a volleyball for the day, or take in the tunes at night. The Windjammer is a great spot for any bachelor party coming through town.

2. Bocce Ball On the Beach

Bocce Ball is the perfect daytime leisure activity for the beach. The “course” of the beach is ever-changing and both IOP and Sullivan’s Island are ripe with beach grass and driftwood to add an extra challenge. Grab your set and bocce the day away in the sun. Need to settle up on the rules? Here’s a link to refresh your memory. We suggest throwing in a couple house rules to keep it interesting.

3. Pub Grub on Sullivan’s Island

Sullivan’s Island is home to some of the tastiest, greasiest, beach-inspired food around Charleston. Poe’s Tavern offers some of the areas best burgers and fish tacos, while Fiery Ron’s Hometeam BBQ has pulled pork and ribs that have been voted the best in Charleston. What to drink? We suggest Hometeam’s way-too-drinkable “Game Changer” to get the night started or refresh you during the day. Dunleavy’s Pub on the same strip is a classic Irish-style pub that you can post up in for hours with a menu that features specialty items like custom hotdogs, their famous wings and a daily Blue Plate Special. Important: Dunleavy’s only takes cash, so stock up before hand or utilize their ATM.

4. Get Out On the Water

At the beach on Sullivan’s Island or Isle of Palms, it’s time to get out on the water. The area offers off-shore fishing, sharking and eco tours (that means dolphins). Most services are just down the road in Mount Pleasant, so you probably won’t have to take more than two turns to get there! The Charleston waterways are excellent for fishing black drum, red drum and spotted sea trout—you may even grab a blue crab or two, or hook yourself a shark.

5. Get To Downtown Charleston

The bars and nightlife await you downtown on King Street, East Bay and Market Street. With so many options to choose from, you can make your night a classy, suite-up affair with cocktails, a laid back night of slurping alcoholic slurpees or hide out at a local dive. Many bars cater to bachelor parties with all-you-can-drink specials or VIP service.

If you’re looking for a ride around Charleston to get downtown, to the golf course or just need a designated driver who can get you where you need to be safely 24/7, then consider renting luxury transportation from Marque Limo Company. Our fleet includes luxury cars and SUVS, party buses and of course, limousines of all different sizes. Let our friendly, knowledgeable staff show you and your bachelor party a good time while out on the town.
