The Space
Square Footage 14,000
Location Charleston, SC
Because the “best ideas are brewed over a pint,” the beer-centric establishment has expanded from a single site in Raleigh, N.C., to 21 locations across the Southeast. Carolina Ale House cracks open a second location in the Lowcountry of South Carolina in the very high-profile, logistically challenging corner of King and Calhoun streets in historic downtown Charleston. The restaurant occupies the second and third floors of the former Millennium Music building, recently renovated by Choate Construction to include both restaurant and retail space. To create a neighborhood-friendly ambiance, hardwood flooring, beadboard wainscoting, exposed ceilings and a decorative brick veneer are included throughout. Each floor also features a general dining area and bar, as well as a kitchen, prep area, food and beer coolers, central bar, office space, storage and restrooms.

In regard to the differentiating factors between the two floors, the second floor boasts a sliding window system for a fresh air atmosphere. Patrons can also partake in the latest happenings in the world of sports with multiple televisions spread about. The third floor, only slightly different from the second, offers guests a bonus outdoor seating deck with an aluminum trellis and lighted screen wall. Two 14’x27’ retractable roofs allow natural light and fresh air to permeate the space for a comfortable, relaxed dining experience.
