NoMo – or North of Morrison— is a neighborhood that has undergone a recent transformation, from hollow buildings and empty parking lots to a trendy hub for creativity. This location, situated north of Huger Street in between Morrison Drive and Meeting Street, is suddenly filled with tech businesses, housing developments, and many of Charleston’s most popular restaurants and breweries. These 19 spots have helped lead the NoMo charge, with a focus on community and local growth.
