The tips are coming in strong that fancy hotel The Dewberry’s rooftop bar The Citrus Club could be open before Charleston Wine + Food at the end of the month. The Citrus Club was part of the original line-up of offerings from the hotel, but came across some zoning hiccups. Since opening, mid-century-modern bar The Living Room and Southern brasserie Henrietta’s have gone on to woo the people and tourists of Charleston.
The Citrus Club is billed as “the tallest rooftop bar in Charleston.” In a 2016 interview, Eater was told that the food would be light, like oysters, crudos, and raw bar items, and the drinks would be riffs on tiki classics, but better. “I’m trying to elevate the high art of the piña colada,” said bar manager Ryan Casey. At the time, Eater was able to peek at the roof top, and the view is unmatched.
