First Look at Tapas Bar Estadio Opening in Cannonborough/Elliotborough

Opens this week

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

Washington, D.C., favorite Estadio announced last year that it will open a second location in Charleston at 122 Spring St., and now it will officially open to the public on Thursday, October 10, at 4 p.m.

The tapas spot will remain open through the weekend before closing on Monday, October 14,1 for the day. After that, Estadio will be open seven days a week from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Owner Max Kuller told Eater D.C. that the core of D.C.’s menu will be imported to Charleston, like patatas bravas and cured meats and cheeses, and some dishes will differ depending on what’s in season in the South.

Estadio chef Alex Lira staged in Spain for three weeks, in kitchens across San Sebastián and Madrid, in preparation of the forthcoming opening. “This is an incredibly important round of research and development that is sure to add another layer of depth to Estadio’s Charleston menu,” said Kuller.
