The Locals Hang Where?

In an unassuming cinderblock building you can rub elbows with lawmakers, government employees, reporters and laid-back locals at the Red Carpet Lounge in Charleston’s Historic East End. Just down the street you can catch live music every night at the Empty Glass. Some say, “dive bar,” but don’t let this establishment’s rough-around-the-edges atmosphere fool you. More award-winning regional and national artists have played this venue than any other in the city.
