Learn All About  The Belmont Bar Charleston SC

The Belmont Bar Charleston SC was founded in 2010 by Mickey Moran, who has witnessed his section of King Street evolve drastically. Moran’s block has been joined by famous culinary names and hotels since he began, but that hasn’t changed what happens beneath the little cocktail bar’s battered tin roof. It’s still the same restaurant that only admits 40 people in at a time, plays black and white classics like Casablanca on silent, and carries some of Charleston’s best wines. The bartenders might prepare something new for each customer or recall which oldies they prefer.

Service of the Belmont Bar Charleston SC

Proof’s bartenders take cocktails and cocktail service very seriously, as seen by a traditional absinthe service and classic cocktails such the Gin & Tonic, Clover Club, Pink Rabbit, Old Fashioned, Manhattan, and others. You’ll also find some new twists on old favorites, as well as nightly specials concocted by the bartenders.

With dimmer lighting and high-top tables, as well as the occasional live music event, this quiet Upper King cocktail bar is ideal for a date night or a gathering of close friends. The motto is “wine, spirits, and genuine decent beers,” and while the selection is much more limited than its neighbor, Closed For Business, there are a few exceptional options: Bellhaven Black Scottish Stout, Bells 2 Hearted IPA, and Jever Pilsner. It is recommended as one of the top bars of Charleston.

The Belmont is a place for discussion, reminiscing, and unwinding after a long day—all while sipping on some unbelievably well-made drinks. Get to the Belmont early to avoid any Saturday lines, which emerge primarily because the Belmont keeps the bar from being too packed.
