It's Monday, and Mondays are terrible. Let's start considering post-work drinking options. Charleston restaurants and bars know how to lure patrons with deep discounts on food and booze in the hours immediately following the office.

If you're looking fancy cocktails, cheap beer, discount pork rinds, or gourmet tacos, there's a place for you on this map. And since these choices are all downtown, you could theoretically hop around to a few, if you drink fast and the Ubers are plentiful.
