After a day of exploring Charleston we felt we were deserving of some refreshments. We had read about this place and were not disappointed when we got there. It is a small venue, quite trendy. Lovely cocktails and nibbles to be had. We went quite early ( around 5pm) we were the only one in there but it started to fill up pretty swiftly. I would imagine it getting quite busy with a good atmosphere later in the evening

After a long day touring Charleston we had drinks at The Gin Joint before dining at Magnolias (across the street). What a fun place! Large selection of amazing gin & other drinks ... flavorful & seasonal! Highly recommend!!

My husband and I visited for our honeymoon, went to more than 10 tourist recommended attractions, restaurants, and shopping centers and the Gin Joint was our favorite place we went to the whole time. It has a very quiet, but pleasant atmosphere with TONS of gin options and a very creative menu. We loved everything we had and our only regret is that we left to go to a dinner place that was not as much fun as the Gin Joint! We will go back every time we visit Charleston from now on.

This is a cocktail bar. It's quite small and fills up fast. They do have a small food menu but we were there to sample the libations. We both went for the bartenders choice, where you select two words from a list of adjectives and the bartender makes your drink. They were fab and exactly what we were looking for. Very impressed.
