39 Rue De Jean

Copy Link
Long-standing 39 Rue De Jean is the place of festive celebrations. Book a table, pop the bubbly, and choose from an extensive French, yet approachable, menu. It's the greatest hits of bistro fare, like mussels, steak frites, and one of the top burgers around. The location makes for an easy transition to bar hopping on Upper King after.

Halls Chophouse

Halls Chophouse constantly pulls in massive crowds looking to whoop it up while ordering lobster mac and cheese, seafood towers, and bigger-than-the-plate ribeyes. Get dressed up and make it a multiple martini night here.

Cannon Green

Bachelorette party Instagrams from the stunning dining room at Cannon Green will leave others with serious FOMO. Start with triggerfish ceviche or a burrata salad and then go into a tilefish with zucchini flowers and chardonnay butter. If you're up for a stroll, walk a few blocks down to Warehouse for evening cocktails, or call a pedicab.

The Macintosh

The back patio at The Macintosh makes for a lively, al fresco dining experience. The new American menu will have something for everyone in the party. While chef Jeremiah Bacon does have a way with local catches, don't miss the bone marrow bread pudding as a side item to share. After the meal, go upstairs to The Cocktail Club for a fancy nightcap.

The Obstinate Daughter

For a more relaxed affair, try a beach evening at Sullivan's Island with a stop for dinner at The Obstinate Daughter. Gather the group at a community table for crisp pizzas with local ingredients, ricotta gnocchi with short rib ragu, and expert cocktails. Go for a gelato at Beardcat's after or a stroll near the ocean.

BLU Restaurant & Bar

Copy Link
Start the night at BLU Restaurant & Bar for views of the ocean and an easy menu of hits, like shrimp and grits, calamari with sweet Thai chili sauce, fried chicken, a bacon cheeseburger, and more. There are plenty of picks for bar hopping on Folly Beach after dinner is over.

Order a few platters of sushi and a couple bottles of sake at Upper King's O-Ku. The dining room can host large groups, and it makes for a convenient jumping off point for other bars in the area.
492 is for the bachelorette with the contemplative palate. The Upper King establishment has a large table to host big parties looking for lamb ribs au poivre with yogurt, flat iron steak with charred eggplant and English peas, or clams with nduja and spring onion. Bonus: sophisticated cocktail bar The Belmont is right across the street when the group finishes dinner.

From the funky art to the angel wing chandeliers, the space at 5Church just screams, "party, party, party." Top Chef alum Jamie Lynch leads the kitchen with a menu of tuna tartare, crispy chicken roulade, lamb burgers, and more.

Barsa Tapas, Lounge, & Bar

Tapas lounge Barsa can accommodate large groups who want to share small plates of Spanish-inspired fare. For a big evening, order a few large paellas for the table. To keep the party going after, walk down to Recovery Room for a jukebox, PBRs, and plenty of shots.

Warehouse

Copy Link
Spring Street restaurant Warehouse keeps the evenings lively with interesting specials from chef Emily Hahn, a solid regular menu, and a corner pool table, plus DJS later in the evening. Don't let the party atmosphere fool you — the food is serious business here. Try the lamb neck ramen or keep it simple with fish and chips.
Located in the middle of bar strip Upper King, Fish can offer a variety of tastes for brides and their friends. With a mix of French and Asian, chef Dave Schuttenberg's menu goes from a roasted half chicken with farro to a Schezuan cumin lamb hot pot to smoked pork loin with field pea hummus.
