A Champagne Lounge

Hotel Bennett complies with the latest food and beverage regulations issued by the City of Charleston and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

As colorful as its namesake flower, Camellias is Charleston’s premier Champagne Lounge, featuring an extensive collection of bottle and by-the-glass offerings paired with a decadent selection of caviar, ceviche and tartare. Additionally, Camellias offers a champagne-inspired cocktail program and a collection of delectable desserts, including the signature Camellias Cake. The stunning pink hue reflects a piece of Charleston history: marble that once clad the library building where Hotel Bennett stands. The marble was reclaimed, restored and now graces the bar and tabletops. The egg-shaped room design was inspired by the famous Faberge jewel boxes and features four pieces of art that depict the Camellia flower. Reflective finishes, including an etched-mirror ceiling and beautiful strings of crystal cascading from the chandelier, add both shimmer and style to the atmosphere.
