Where to go for pre-concert FUN in Daniel Island/Mount Pleasant/Charleston

miss piggy | Sep 16, 201306:55 PM

Headed to concerts on Friday and Saturday at Family Circle Tennis Cup Arena on Daniel Island in early October. So thrilled to be in the Charleston area this time of year!

We have rented a house that is off the Long Point Road exit of 526 in Mount P. I think it should be less than 10 minutes or so from the venue? I hope so! Anyways, we will be getting in on Friday afternoon and are looking for a place somewhere w/in 15 minutes drive of the venue OR our house for drinks and good food. Nothing fancy, food doesn't have to be "great"...we are mainly looking for a fun place to hang out...bonus points for a view, patio, beach (how far will we be from the beach actually?), etc. Anything like that in the area?

On Saturday we plan on going into Charleston. Definitely want to hit Pearlz happy hour at 4 and maybe the rooftop at the Vendue? I wasn't crazy about the drinks there but thought the ambiance was fun. Is there a better place for something like this? I read alot about Fleet landing on this board - would that be a good place for drinks and a view? Again, we are traveling for a very limited time with two people who have never been to Charleston and are NOT looking for fancy dinners this time around but mainly outdoor dining, fun day-drinks atmosphere kind of places, etc. Any other ideas for Charleston appreciated. Oh and before anyone panics...we will have a sober driver. It just won't be me :)

And finally, brunch on Sunday before we head out of town...would you suggest Red Drum in Mount P? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!
