What once had disintegrated into an austere ruinÂ next toÂ the main dining room of Husk now houses an innovative freestanding bar. A complete renovation transformed what had been a brick shell into the most excitingÂ bar in historic Charleston. Tightly arranged and rough hewn, with century-old exposed brick still intact and master bartenders stationed on the first floor, the bar at Husk recalls a bygone era of Charleston nightlife, and Huskâ€™s emphasis on classic cocktails continues the cityâ€™s historic tippling traditions.
Our team of passionate mixologistsÂ offer an extensive lineup ofÂ historic andÂ modern cocktails on the bar menu, which is designed to honor the traditional spirits of the Southern table and trace the historical lineage of regional mixology. Patrons can sit upstairs in the second-floor lounge of the bar, overlooking the wide verandas of Huskâ€™s streetfront while tasting some of the most delicious drinks in the South. It is a place to relax, to wait for a table next door, and always a discovery of new tastes derived from old virtues.
Rare artisanal microbrews and a wine list grouped by terroir and soil type, rather than the traditional classifications of political geography or grape varietal, further connect the concepts of Huskâ€™s bar to the mission of the restaurant.
