Prohibition Charleston Restaurant & Cocktail Bar in Charleston, SC

A nod to the classic 1920’s speakeasy, Prohibition Charleston feels like you’re stepping back in time with its bourbon barrel ceiling and vintage inspired decor. Our cocktails and cuisine, however, are anything but old-fashioned. Begin with an inventive cocktail crafted by Beverage Director Jim McCourt, who constantly dreams up balanced and thought-provoking libations. In the kitchen our acclaimed chef, Greg Garrison, puts a sophisticated spin on Southern classics. Feeling adventurous? Try the whole experience with our casual tasting menu paired with dealers choice beverage pairings.
