Sorry for any inconvenience.


So there’s a water main break of some sorts up the street on Savannah Hwy. Our water will be turned off tonight. Our kitchen will stop serving at 7:15, bar at 7:30. Sorry for the inconvenience everybody. 🍻

Gene's received an incredible amount of nominations in this year's Best of Charleston. Please take the time to vote. Gene's has been serving Charleston (West Ashley) since 1952. Next year will be our 70th anniversary!

Bottled Beer Selection (Over 185+ kinds)
West Ashley Bar (In the heart of Avondale)
West Ashley Happy Hour (EVERY day 4-7pm)
Beer Selection on Tap (17 Taps, rotating local & seasonal brews)
Cheap Beer Deal ($1.25 PBR & High Life during HH)
Coldest Beer (Always rotating the coolers and cold kegs)
No Frills Watering Hole (Yep we're definitely VINTAGE!)


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.

Slàinte y’all!


Corned Beef & Cabbage all weekend til it lasts.
Plus $5 Guinness and $5 Low Tide Irish Red on tap.

Happy St. Patty’s weekend!!


Kitchen’s up and running full menu til 11pm. Bar til 2am!

See y’all tonight!


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.


Happy Thanksgiving, Charleston!

We’re closed today but we’ll see you this weekend!
Stay safe!


For the record, we do not participate in any online delivery services (Grub Hub, Uber Eats, Door Dash, etc), and we’re actively working on taking our name off their platforms.

Also, we are currently serving a limited menu because of Covid-19 restrictions (you can call your Governor’s office if you have an issue about that.)

If you’ve had an issue recently, we are sorry. But the easiest way to get To-Go food from Gene’s is calling us yourself and picking it up yourself (you should enjoy any of our 210 beers and our friendly banter while you wait on your food.)



We will be closing tomorrow at 5pm for a private event. The kitchen will be serving brunch til 4pm. Sorry for any inconvenience. Cheers, y’all!!
