In this city, two things are certain no matter the event, there will be a lot of food and a lot of fabulous. Charleston has a feast of unique event venues, and we’ve highlighted some of our favorites to share with you.

Newly restored with original brick walls and reclaimed wooden beams, the shed also boasts a wood-burning fireplace, a custom-made table for 26 guests and an outdoor brick patio covered with a mainsail to accommodate 36.
