Excellent food and drink service with a sweeping view of Charleston, the river and bridge right along with a pool.

Spent several night sin this hotel and at this bar near the pool. First of all the rooftop view is amazing and the proximity to the pool makes for a wonderful afternoon. While at the pool or sitting at the bar the staff will quickly build up a re pore with each customer. Service is quick and professional.

My review is solely for the bar. My husband and I just moved to the area and someone recommend the Pavilion Bar, which I must say has a breathtaking view. However, we were in shock when the bartender at lunch was rude! We had planned on having lunch, but his actions made us feel extremely uncomfortable. At one point he... More

If you're interested in a rooftop bar with a great view this is your place. There are others but this one by far is the nicest.

Roof top bar and dining located in the luxurious Market Pavilion hotel, located on the corner of E Bay and S Market. Offers the best views of the city, overlooking the market and Old Customs House. When the cruise ship is in port you have a great unobstructed view and it would also make a great place to watch to... More

A beautiful rooftop bar with a pool and a great view. It was about 50 degrees the night we stopped in for a drink so it lost a little of it's magic.
