PSA: Alycia Alley behind Gene’s is being paved this week and is completely blocked off. The Gene’s/Roost parking lot is also closed since it’s only one way into the closed alley. The parking spots on Savannah Hwy are still open, and feel free to use the parking lot on the side of Harris Teeter (pretend you’re downtown and walk a block or two.) Hopefully the paving will be done by Wednesday. Cheers!


Come toast with us! Low Tide Brewing's Tura’Lu Irish Red and Guinness specials ALL day!!


Sorry NO green beer. But just tapped a keg of Low Tide Brewing’s Tura’Lu Irish Red. And of course everyone’s favorite dark, dry stout, Guinness. We will have specials on these two brews all the way until St. Patty’s Day.

If you’re hungry, we’ll be serving yummy homemade Corned Beef & Cabbage.

Unfortunately, or Kitchen hoods are down, so as of now we’re not serving any food. The bar will be open all day and y’all are more than welcome to order takeout from one of our Avondale neighbors and bring it here.

The good news is that we’re back to our full menu!
We’ll have the kitchen open until 11pm daily until we can adjust our BOH staff and schedule.

Hoping this hood issue will be minor and fixed today. We’ll keep you posted!


Pot Roast is back! Might as well have a HopSlam with it!


Hey West Ashley residents, consider taking this survey and join the discussion about the Greenway and Bikeway here is West Ashley.

This spring, the Clemson School of Architecture will continue to work with the Charleston Parks Conservancy and the city of Charleston to create projects that engage the community of West Ashley along the Greenway and Bikeway. These projects are most successful when community members are informed and involved from the initial phases of design. We are asking the community to complete this survey and to attend a virtual conversation hosted by the Charleston Parks Conservancy on February 10th, 2021 at 6pm. Click on the link below for survey.
