Bay Street Biergarten

Our Story

Bay Street Biergarten is located at 549 East Bay Street on the Charleston Peninsula in the historic neighborhood of Wraggborough. Featuring beautiful high ceilings, large communal tables, and German-influenced, high-end bar fare, it’s as close as you can get to an authentic Munich bier hall in the South.

Once called the Wilmington Railroad Depot, our 7,500-square-foot building was violently destroyed during the Civil War. While the Biergarten represents the future of Charleston’s booming food and beverage industry, it is inextricably also tied to Charleston’s history. We have honored the Holy City’s past and future by maintaining the historically significant building’s bones. We’ve also combined the communal atmosphere of a traditional German Biergarten with all the fixings and hospitality of a southern bar and restaurant.

We’re all about community, festivities, and uniting the old with the new. We've got something for everyone, including a dog-friendly patio, 15 giant flatscreen TVs, games, specialty cocktails, wine, and did we mention a parking lot?? So, join us for a pint at the bar, the big game, brunch, special events, and more!

Prost Y’all!
