First Look at the Stunning Renovation at Tradd’s

It looks nothing like its predecessor

Modern American eatery Tradd’s opened the doors for the first time on Wednesday, October 10, at a preview party filled with champagne, jumbo shrimp, and caviar. Any hints of the East Bay Street building’s former life as fine-dining establishment Cypress are long gone after extensive work by local design firm Workstead and Charleston-based Lennon Construction.

The downstairs is now broken into three parts — a dining room and two bar areas — with plans to serve the full menu at each. The bright dining room is refined yet unpretentious, with local art adorning the walls.

Co-owners Tradd and Weesie Newton explained that the menu will change frequently with the back champagne bar featuring specialty raw bar items. An expansive upstairs private event space with large windows overlooking East Bay Street will soon be available for small wedding parties and other events.

Tradd’s opens for dinner at 5 p.m. on Monday, October 15, and will begin a lunch service in the coming weeks.

Take a tour around Tradd’s here.
