The Eastside is an historic neighborhood that used to lie under the shadow of the old Cooper River bridges.  One of the most impressive projects in this area is the renovation of the Cigar Factory, located at the foot of Columbus Street and East Bay Street, completed in 2015. Another project on Meeting Street near the entrance to the Ravenel Bridge is One Cool Blow, Downtown’s first mixed-use project built with environmental ‘green’ standards in mind. Everywhere there are cranes and new construction transforming this neighborhood into a walkable, mixed use community.

Today the Cigar Factory is mostly commercial space for local businesses, but it also has Mercantile – a great grab-and-go, or stay-and-eat gourmet food emporium, and Mash – a cool whisky and beer bar. On East Bay near the bridge on-ramp.


An unpretentious dive bar and music venue, the Commodore has an incredible house band that plays funk, jazz and blues, inspiring its patrons to dance the night away. Get there early to avoid the lines. At Meeting and Sheppard.


this renovated warehouse and taco eatery has an incredible outdoor space with picnic tables, funky art and a lively bar. Fantastic guacamole and fruity cocktails. Plenty of parking and bike racks are available. On Huger Street just off East Bay.
