Nightlife in Charleston/Downtown

Charleston lights up when the sun goes down.

Just because the sun set doesn’t mean you have to. Charleston is a city that is just as electric at night as it is during the day. If you want to dance the night away or just enjoy a few drinks and quality time with friends you can find the atmosphere you are looking for in Charleston. With everything from rooftops to speakeasy-inspired bars, there's a setting for everyone.
