Post House Inn
This petite tavern-with-rooms in the city's waterside Old Village district feels a million miles away from the downtown bustle found a 10-minute drive away, across the Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge. Former New Yorker Kate Towill and her British beau, Ben, wanted to imbue the old inn with southern charm and a distinctive village pub character when they opened in 2020. The old-world clapboard-covered exterior hints at what's inside: a William Morris-dressed home-from-home with a historic ambience lightly reminiscent of what we imagine Greta Gerwig's moodboard might have looked like for her 2019 Little Women adaption. Seven rooms - each of which is accessed with a twist of a hefty brass key - are trussed up in a modern southern style. Independent magazines sit beside rattan headboards, arts and crafts wallpaper juxtaposes duck-egg-coloured panelling, and powder-blue rotary phones provide access to a 24-hour concierge service. Downstairs, the lively tavern is helmed by chef Nick Wilber. Grab a cosy nook beside the fireplace to dine on comforting cornbread, full-fat cheeseburgers and shrimp fritters.
