The Dewberry’s rooftop bar the Citrus Club could maybe, possibly be open by the time fall rolls around. The hotel’s new food director Michael Tuohy posted a call for applicants for the forthcoming establishment on his Instagram page. However, there are rumors that the Citrus Club may only be accessible to guests in the beginning.
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 reported 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.
