this is a great spot to sit outside in the beautiful little courtyard and have drinks with friends. we didn't eat anything here, but loved their extensive drink menu and our server was just precious! a super pre or post dinner hangout for drinks and small bites!

I love the Gin Joint. The ambiance is incredible: lots of brick and texture, dim lights, candles, waitstaff with bow ties (bow ties!)... all tucked away in a great little nook, in the heart of downtown Charleston. The menu is extensive, to say the least. Their cocktails are creative and have quality liquor and ingredients, and while they can be a bit on the pricey side, they are well worth it. It's a great place to wrap up a date. It was where my fiance and I celebrated our engagement together when she said yes. I can't imagine a better place we could have gone to catch a moment to celebrate what had just happened. We would both recommend the Gin Joint to anyone visiting Charleston, or hoping to find a place to create a memorable moment.

Great place for a drink, interesting selection of cocktails. Had their weekly "punch," an interesting concoction of peaches, bourbon, lemon and bitters which was an excellent value at 5 dollars. The rest of the drinks were also very nice, drink menu is extensive, apps looks good and service was friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend checking this place out if you are in downtown charleston.

The Gin Joint is a place to go to enjoy a well mixed sophisticated cocktail. The drinks take time and are pricey but well worth it!
