Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Sorelle.
| Peter Frank Edwards

Those who choose to leave their house on New Year’s Eve can be certain of three things: long lines, loud fireworks, and intoxicated 20-somethings roaming the streets. With that said, this sometimes stressful evening doesn’t have to be, especially with the many Charleston options offering tasty bites, imaginative drinks, and live entertainment before and after the ball drops. A party in the Holy City wouldn’t be complete without delicious food, and these eateries are sure to dazzle with options like duck, lobster, and plenty of bubbly beverages to go around. New Year’s Eve isn’t for everyone, but those willing to soar into 2024 with a bang should check out one of these 12 Charleston destinations.
