spoleto socializing

   Much of  the Spolet mystique is the enjoyment of fabulous venues throughout historic Charleston – offering much more than an auditorium seat. Some of the highlighted hangouts aren't on the official festival schedule, but are vintage Spoleto in character. For example, Charleston Grill offers a special combination of dining and jazz with nightly three-course menu complemented by the music of the Quentin Baxter Trio. The price is $39, the time is 9pm, and the venue is classic oziness in low light and dark paneling. Call (843) 577-4522 for reservations. A number of other outstanding downtown restaurants offer early "Prix-Fixe" specials during the festival for those who don't want to go to evening performances hungry, including Carolina's, McCrady's, Circa 1886, Fish, The Peninsul Grill, and Muse.

  Among the after-performance hot spots for cocktails, cordials, and Irish coffee are Rue de Jean, Cypress, and Tristan's, and on warm, breezy nights there are few more enjoyable spots than the outdoor venues at Vickery's and Union Pier, or the enticing rooftop bars at the Library at Vendue Inn and the Market Pavilion.
