In honor of Charleston Wine + Food kicking off this week, we're sharing OpenTable's article, "How To Navigate This Year's Charleston Wine & Food Festival Like a Pro." 🍷✨

Beyond the signature dinners and festival events, this week is a great opportunity to check out Brasserie La Banque, Indaco, Oak Steakhouse, Maya Charleston, The Kingstide, The Dime, O-Ku, Bar Mash, Mercantile and Mash and The Cocktail Club.


The Indigo Road Hospitality Group is built around empowering our teams to enrich the community and provide outstanding hospitality. We invest in our people and support personal growth and development. ✨

Chef Junior is an integral part of the O-Ku team and strives to provide a personalized and memorable experience for all guests. He finds joy in coming together to work with and support the fellow hospitality community. 🍣

IRHG is hiring for all positions across multiple properties. Explore the careers page and apply today: https://www.theindigoroad.com/careers/

We will be closed for renovations from January 16 through January 21. 🍕

While our kitchen may be closed for the week, we hear our friends at Maya Charleston, Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku and Brasserie La Banque are participating in CHS . It's a great time to check them out! 🍽

Love seeing Indaco, Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku and The Kingstide all featured in OpenTable's roundup of "12 Best Romantic Date Night Restaurants" in Charleston. 💙

🎶 And it went like… a dream day trip! Last weekend The Mocktail Project went on an epic Day Trip with our friends from Toyota USA.
He learned about Charleston sea beans at Heron Farms laboratory to later use in a zero-proof cocktail crafted with The Gin Joint, and had plenty of drool-worthy food stops along the way. 👀 Handy & Hot, Rodney Scott's BBQ, Clerks Coffee Co, O-Ku, Frannie and the Fox. The gorgeous Hotel Emeline served as the perfect place to recharge.
We hope this itinerary inspires you to hop in your 🚗 and take a day trip. ☀️

Love an idea of living in a Charleston Single but don’t think that 200 year old building is for you?
Then look no more: this beautiful home in Wraggborough Subdivision is gorgeous! Take a look at the photos and let me know if you have any more questions!

This home is smack in the middle of downtown, close to one of the oldest museums in the United States - The Charleston Museum. It's also minutes away from some great dining on King St, like O-Ku, The Darling Oyster Bar and much more; and some cool places on East Bay Street like Rappahannock Oyster Bar - Charleston, SC and Bay Street Biergarten.

From the hospitality group behind The Macintosh, Indaco and O-Ku, Kingstide will feature a restaurant and rooftop bar overlooking the Wando River.

The Alliance For Full Acceptance and The Indigo Road Restaurant Group (Mercantile and Mash, Indaco, The Cocktail Club, Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku, The Macintosh) introduced the 2021 AFFA Local's Card, which gives customers discounts each time they visit participating restaurants in Charleston and Atlanta through 2021.
