One of Charleston's newest and most highly-acclaimed downtown restaurants. Drawing Room restaurant and bar is located in a thoughtfully restored 1780s Charleston warehouse building and melds effortlessly into the sophisticated, yet chic surroundings. The perfect spot for dinner in historic Charleston or cocktails and shared plates before a night on the town. Locally sourced seafood and produce are the mainstay of the innovative menu that is designed to showcase Chef Forrest Parker's artistic style. Complimentary valet parking.
