Rooftop Bar and Restaurant at Vendue Inn

Downtown. 19 Vendue Range. 414-2341

How in the world could a place calling itself the Roof Top Bar and Restaurant win such a grand category? Easy. The elegantly casual Roof Top is simply the go-to downtown “roof top” bar, with an easygoing atmosphere and a terrific view of the French Quarter chimneys and steeples, the Charleston Harbor, the Ravenel Bridge, and historic downtown. In nice weather, the place can be packed with a funky mix of international tourists and authentic Charlestonians hoping to get some sun, breeze, and a buzz on the cold beer and spicy bloody Marys. In the evenings, acoustic acts such as Ted Byrd, Dangermüffin, Soul Fish, and Milhouse play for the more boisterous patrons.
