Mad River Bar & Grille

Downtown. 32 N. Market St. 723-0032

A chain based out of New York, the Mad River Bar & Grille group likes to boast about what they call a “vibrant high-energy bar atmosphere with a fun, attractive clientele.” With the downtown Charleston location, it’s pretty close to the mark. Situated in a beautifully refurbished church in the middle of the teeming North Market Street scene, it’s a proven hit among tourists and regular visitors, yuppies, college-aged yups-in-the-making, downtown professionals, well-dressed sports fans, and elegantly-attired party girls. There’s no shortage of shooter and specialty cocktail specials, wide-screen TVs, happy hour deals, and jazzy brunch events, either.
