We stumbled upon this place and loved it! Brian the bartender provided us awesome service and gave us great advice about the beers and the area. All his recommendations were on point. The buffalo oyster app was really tasty. Thanks for the hospitality!

We do not have a designated free parking lot, but you can usually find parking on the streets nearby. There is also a paid parking lot directly behind the restaurant that should have space available. See you soon!

Closed for Business is Charleston’s first dedicated tap room, with 42 taps, featuring many of Charleston’s best home-grown brews. The menu is Bavarian-inspired, highlighting our spin on traditional dishes served in bars & pubs in southern Germany, along with some American classics. We aren’t your standard bar; within our carefully curated walls our knowledgeable staff is dedicated to providing our guests with a casual, yet polished experience that hopefully introduces them to a world of beer they didn’t know existed.
We do not take reservations of any kind and operate on a first come-first serve basis.
