Ice House

Charleston
Bar
$$$$

Icehouse is one of the oldest bars in Summerville, and is so named because long before refrigerators, railroad workers used to load huge blocks of ice onto railcars. Nowadays, those train tracks, while still functional, serve a slightly different purpose: if you hear a train coming and are the first person to yell “TRAIN!”, the bartender will pour you a free shot. Downstairs, it's a traditional seafood shack; upstairs, a lively cocktail spot—offering over 500 liquors and 100 beers—that’s popular among locals and visitors alike.
