we stopped in for a quick drink and stayed! The drinks are specialty gin drinks and the staff was wonderful! If you are in Charleston you must stop at the Gin Joint!

They will make you a custom drink based on words you chose. I loved the surprise and creativity. Hip, kind of "in the know" vibe and location. I was probably about 20 years too old to feel like I belonged there though.

No vodka here, just flat out handcrafted expertise. Inventive, intoxicating ingredients that will blow you away. Great atmosphere and knowledgeable service. An abundance of spirits you have never heard of concocted beautifully.

We went hear upon a recommendation. We chose the bartenders special where you chose 2 adjectives and they create a drink. After you have completed your drink they let you know what was in it. What Fun! We went for appetizers and a couple drinks before dinner. I am telling everyone about this place, it is a must do for an evening out or before dinner or just in between lunch and dinner. Please be advised that they do not serve vodka, that is why we went with the bartenders choice. We also had some oysters and they were very very good. The waitress was very nice as was the bartender.
