Wherever you find yourself in South Carolina, there will be great food and drink to be had. We’ve looked beyond the state's big cities to find some special picks where you can enjoy your cocktail hour, so all you need to do is "pick your poison."

Wined It Up

What it’s known for: Wined It Up has plenty of delicious hand-picked wines to choose from, but what makes this place stand out is the ability to choose your serving size. With 2, 4 and 6 ounce glasses, you can sample many more than you could at a normal wine bar with your tasty tapas.

Style: Wine bar, tapas, specialty deli, lunch, dinner

Address: 705 E. Bay St., Beaufort

Phone: 843.379.5585


Legal Remedy

What it’s known for: One of the only breweries in the Rock Hill area, Legal Remedy's menu is excellent and homegrown, but you’ll keep coming back for the selection of beers. Try the smoked turkey sandwich with pepper jelly cream cheese with your choice of more than 20 seasonal craft beers on tap.

Style: Brewery, farm-to-table, family-friendly, casual, lunch, dinner

Address: 129 Oakland Ave., Rock Hill

Phone: 803.324.2337


Krafty Draft Brew Pub

What it’s known for: With more than 100 craft beers on tap and 30 wines to choose from, Krafty Draft is the only specialty brew pub in the town of Lexington, and it certainly has the monopoly on selection. Come with a group, order some of the smoked wings if they’re on the menu and settle in for a great night.

Style: Specialty brew pub, casual

Address: 269 Charter Oak Road, Lexington

Phone: 803.996.0345


Bin 112

What it’s known for: A lively little place in the heart of downtown Greer, Bin 122’s fun dishes and creative plates can be described as “Southeastern with a twist.” You’ll appreciate the house-made cocktails like the Garden and Gun Mojito and the special cheese menu for those who love a great glass of wine.

Style: Southeastern, dinner

Address: 112 Trade St., Greer

Phone: 864.848.2112


Sidebar

What it’s known for: If you’re a fan of whiskey – look no further. Take your pick from a list of more than 100 different types. Be it straight bourbon, American rye or Scotch, the list seems infinite. And whiskey is only one type of libation offered at Sidebar. With an even larger beer list and some specialty Southern spirits, this is the place to be for cocktail hour in Sumter.

Style: Southern, farm-to-table, family-friendly, casual, lunch

Address: 30 N. Main St., Sumter

Phone: 803.774.4410


The Library

What it’s known for: The Library has a relaxed, speakeasy feel that’s perfect for enjoying drinks and tapas among friends, or having a delectable dinner date night for two. Keep it classic with favorites like a Manhattan, or change it up and let their mixologist craft something unique just for you.

Style: Tapas, cocktail lounge

Address: 154 S. Dargan St., Florence

Phone: 864.319.4434


Madra Rua Irish Pub

What it’s known for: Come in for a pint and to watch the game at Madra Rua in Summerville. You don’t have to be Irish to have a grand ol’ time. You should try one of the traditional Irish dishes, though. If you aren’t craving the Irish stew, the daily menu specials are sure to please. (Especially when paired with one of their carefully poured nitrogen-charged brews – they brag they’re the best of the Lowcountry.)

Style: Irish Pub, sports bar, casual, lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch

Address: 2066 N. Main St., Summerville

Phone: 843.821.9434
