Located in a renovated 105-year old church, our main dining room is truly breath-taking with 60-ft vaulted ceilings and original stained-glass windows. The text of the “Art of War” is hand-written across the ceiling, and the dining room is complemented with unique artwork. A full or partial buyout allows you to customize every aspect of your event including food and beverage offerings, floor plans, as well as AV, music, and decoration. A full restaurant buyout includes the use of all restaurant spaces and room, from the main dining room to the garden patio, with plenty of seating and standing areas for your guests to mingle.
Capacity: 150 seated | 200 standing
The Main Dining Room is the perfect space to host your dinner. Located inside a 105 year old former church, most of the original bones are here. Large stained glass windows and a hand painted vaulted ceiling provide a wonderful ambiance both day and night. It truly is a one of a kind room, great for many occasions! Our main bar is situated on one side of the room, creating a great atmosphere that can be utilized however you would like, from cocktailing to a full dinner buffet. This room can accommodate guests for a seated, coursed dinner or standing reception styled night.
Capacity: 100 seated | 150 standing
The Buffalo Room is a private dining room located next to the main dining room. It has original stained glass windows that can be opened or closed to create a more private experience. Included is a small private patio off the front of the room that looks out on historical Market Street. The room also has direct access to our outdoor garden patio and can be added for clients looking to have separate reception spaces and sit-down dinner areas.
Capacity: 40 seated | 55 standing
$5 Bill Area
Tucked in the back of the main dining room, the $5 Bill area allows guests to dine in a semi-private space, while still being able to experience the ambiance and energy of the restaurant and bar. With large, stained glass windows and unique artwork, the space is a perfect backdrop for both cocktail hours and seated dinners.
Capacity: 35 seated | 45 standing
Our Garden Patio is a charming private outdoor space tucked away behind the restaurant with an entrance through the private Buffalo Room. The area has outdoor couches that create a lounge area and tables for dining, and also includes an outdoor bar and television with dedicated service for your event. With garden globe lights and unique artwork, the patio is a popular option during the spring, fall, and winter months. Though the patio is available during summer months, the notorious low-country humidity makes this a less popular option. The Garden Patio is weather depending.
Capacity: 20 seated | 35 standing
Bar and Communals
Located in the center of the main dining room with prime access to the bar, this option is perfect for networking and happy hour events. Guests can mingle easily either standing or sitting at the high-top tables. The table set up is perfect for sharing appetizers and light bites while enjoying high energy from the bar.
Capacity: 30 seated | 40 standing
