The Vendue is a combination of two unique boutique hotels – 19 Vendue and 26 Vendue – located across the street from one another. 19 Vendue is housed within five historic warehouses dating back to 1780 that have been combined to form one hotel. 26 Vendue is a combination of two historic warehouses dating back to the 1800s. Due to the historic nature of the buildings, no two rooms are alike and each is decorated with different period reproduction furnishings or true antiques.
The Vendue was renovated and "reborn" in 2014 to create Charleston's first and only hotel dedicated to the arts – in all forms. Over 300 pieces of original art have been installed for our guests to enjoy. Our main exhibition space covers the entire public spaces of 19 Vendue. Additional installations are on display in all guestroom corridors, the public areas of 26 Vendue, and within our Gallery guest rooms.
The Vendue houses multiple event venues at our on-site restaurants. We offer full-service catering, and our executive chef will provide custom menus and quotes for any event need. Every detail is expertly crafted to ensure that the only thing you need to think about on the day of your event is enjoying yourself and your guests.
The Drawing Room, our redesigned restaurant located on the main level of the hotel is Charleston dining at its finest. An elegant yet casual dining space that features beautiful arches and artwork curated by local galleries. Accommodates up to 50.
The Rooftop Bar, located on the 4th and 5th floors of the hotel, boasts one of the most spectacular views in Charleston. The Rooftop Bar offers three distinct areas to suit your event needs:
The Main Level: Within this open-aired space, a large section of the main level has a closeable louvered roof, roll down panels and installed heaters, allowing guests to enjoy the sunshine, or on the rare occasion, keep out any inclement weather. The main level can accommodate up to 100 people, or with an additional tenting system for the deck, up to 150 people.
The Bridge Bar: Located on the highest level of the hotel, The Bridge Bar offers 360° view of the Charleston Harbor and the surrounding islands, making it the perfect space for everything from a Sunday brunch to an evening cocktail reception. The space accommodates up to 50 of your guests with a secluded area for dining, as well as a separate full bar.
The VIP Sections: Located on the main level of the bar, The VIP sections are private areas that can accommodate smaller groups. They offer an intimate private lounge setting, perfect for bachelor or bachelorette parties or even just a night out on the town with friends.
