An inexpensive American-style café open for lunch and dinner, it features a full bar, spicy hot toddies, and live evening entertainment. The unpretentious store front hides a gem of a dining establishment by the Old City Market. It's a great place to relax with specialty coffees and some of Charleston's most delectable desserts such as Tollhouse Cookie Pie or Turtle Cheesecake. A huge slice of the Heath Bar Cake is plenty for two people. Popular with the late-night crowd when it gets really busy, this is a "
"must" for both locals and visitors exploring the city. -Natasha Lawrence

Relaxed and easygoing-that's how this bar can be described. Named after its previous owners, it is a busy, noisy, smoker's joint that's open till the wee hours. Even given its rebellious ambiance, the interiors can be a shock-a picture of Pope John Paul II adorns the walls! Through wisps of swirling smoke, you will spot an old school Frogger arcade game that is quite addictive, if you can get away from the regulars' banter and rugged stories. Sip the USD2 beer and munch on deep fried snacks. The bartenders are said to be the best in town. Quite a spot for an ol' sailor, or a band of buddies!

Located in a railroad storage depot listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Music Farm is your station for live music. Outside, the building looks like what it was, a train depot. On the inside, hog wire, sheet metal and plywood convey the feeling of a farm gone electric. Although the majority of acts that play here are not typical radio fare, the Farm has featured nationally known jazz, bluegrass, reggae, folk and rock music acts since 1991. And unlike most music venues, the bar is easy to access.
No, this venue doesn't get its name from the popular 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' story, but rather because of its tin foil decor that appears to slither across the room when the flashing stage lights are worked into a frenzy. Besides the excellent live performances and DJ music at The Tin Roof, patrons can also gorge on some specialty hot dogs, which seem to be another reason why the crowds throng this place. The Tin Roof is a snazzy addition to the West Ashley bar scene, and it definitely makes all the cool cats this side of Charleston purr with delight.
