547 King St
Charleston, SC 29403
One of the hottest cocktail bars in Charleston, Prohibition takes a modern approach to old school booze: the house specialty is a bacon-maple Old Fashioned, and there's distinctly Southern palette in drinks like the King Street Cobbler (blackberry brandy, lemon, muddled sugar, and brandy-infused berries in a rocks glass). For those who fancy a dance after they've finished a few drinks, worry not: like any self-respecting speakeasy, Prohibition features live music every night of the week, ranging from swing, jazz, and funk. There's a focused menu of New American bites from chef Greg Garrison, featuring light bites like blistered shishitos with garlic aioli and tuna crudo with cherry blossom shoyu as well as larger entrées and a five-course tasting menu.
