12 BEST PLACES TO DRINK FOR YOUR CHARLESTON BACHELORETTE PARTY

Charleston is a historic town with a drinking problem... You'll find the highest concentration of late-night bars and clubs on King/  Upper King Street, where you can stumble from bar to bar.  Just try to stay put once the clock strikes midnight because the lines get out of control after that.  Also-  all of the bars are closed by 2 am, so make sure you give yourself ample time after dinner to explore the Charleston nightlife scene.
