The King Of Charleston Shopping-The King Street District
Locals have dubbed one section of Lower King Street, between Beaufain and Queen Streets, “The Antiques District”. At the corner of King and Broad Streets is Berlin's. Saks Fifth Avenue is a highlight at the northern corner of King and Market Streets. Charleston Place on the northeast corner of King and Market just above "antiques row" is where the eager shopper can find trendy stores featuring jewelry, shoes and fine clothiers. Charleston Farmer's Market is located in Marion Square on King Street between Calhoun and Hutson streets.
Places to eat and drink, such as the Charleston Grill, Halls Chophouse, Juanita Greenberg’s Nacho Royal, King Street Grille, Mellow Mushroom, Old Town Grille and Seafood, Torch Velvet Lounge, and Swamp Fox Restaurant and Bar, are all located on King Street. Other choices close by are Blind Tiger, High Cotton, McCrady’s, Mistral, and Vendue's Roof Top Bar and Restaurant. Port City Java is there if a coffee is what you desire. A host of other eating establishments from the expensive to the reasonable are all within walking distance. So go ahead and "shop until you drop" as they say.
