If you’ve been in Charleston for some time, then you may remember when East Bay Street was the hot spot before Upper King took all the crowds. Relaxed bar The Brick was a part of the lower peninsula nightlife, before a fire destroyed the building over three years ago. Like many of those cocktail seekers, The Brick decided to relocate more up north and to a new address. Owner Matt Quillen announced earlier this year that his bar will reopen in the former Charleston Tea Company building and Festiva sales center at 24 Ann St.
While progress has been slow, The Brick recently dropped an Instagram to show off demo at its new address — proof that the bar is indeed on its way back. The new space will feature a lot of the same elements as the former establishment, like live music, draft beers, and craft cocktails. This time however, it will feature a spacious patio.
