The Rooftop at the Vendue
Of all the rooftop bars in Charleston, Vendue probably has the best view. Like the others, it’s part of a hotel, but the scene here is more casual. It’s a large space, split into a few levels—walk up to the very top for an unobstructed, 360-degree view of Charleston, which is well worth the steps. In addition to patio seating, Vendue has a few nooks outfitted with wicker couches that are perfect for groups. They also serve lunch and dinner, and have live music every Sunday from 4 to 7pm.
