we came here for happy hour and the one of Charleston's famous drinks, the double standard is definitely what to order here. It was amazing - cucumber infused vodka and serrano pepper infused gin combined with cilantro and a serrano slice - truly amazing!

Totally cool and funky bar. Rooftop Outdoor seating. Bar lighting makes everything and everyone look great. Original cocktails are yummy.

I stuck to hot toddies all night but the punch bowls were half off on Sunday and they were flowing. It seemed like a locals night, very fun with live music and a great crowd until late. Cocktails were excellent and service was good. Went with friends, great scene

We went here twice over a weekend to grab a drink and talk with friends. Warm cozy atmosphere with an array of great drinks. Busy on weekends so harder to find a seat and talk but during the week, it's a great place to hear each other talk if that's what you are looking for!

I've been to Cocktail Club many times. Until this last time, I would have returned because I know to expect overpaying for drinks and service. However, my last visit - there were several rude staffers. There are so many other great places in Charleston that have better service, delicious cocktails and affordable ambiance.

My drink seemed like 4 ounces...for $13...a little too pricey to get more than one drink. It wasn't anything amazing either. Probably won't be back.

We came in with 60 people that all work in the liquor industry and all with labor intensive cocktails. Matt was able to not only execute but do it with a smile despite the fact that he was overwhelmed. They expected 15 people and we swarmed in like locust. Not to mention they had other customers there as well. Would... More

Wandered in hear with some of my groomsmen the week of my wedding and had a blast even on a weekday chatting it up with the staff and having REAL drinks. Specials every now and then and there are some higher scale bar food choices! Highly recommend for at least a drink on the patio!

Arrived earlyish (about 8:45 pm) to sit in one of the couch/chair areas. Our server moved extra chairs over to accommodate our friends who were meeting us. When our friends arrived, several of them got stuck in the huge line that had developed downstairs, and even though we had empty chairs waiting for them, the bouncer (who was incredibly rude)...

Stopped at Cocktail Club for a couple after dinner drinks and it did not disappoint. Great atmosphere, live music and a nice drink selection.
