Bar Details

Some people still complain bitterly about the Charleston's remodeling a couple years ago: gone are the stuffed armadillo, the lamp made from a ram's head, the pool table, and some of the bar's signature quirkiness. But there's still a reel-to-reel tape recorder hanging on the wall, a couple record players—the bar hosts DJs or live music most nights—and a good beer selection. The entryway to the women's bathroom, lit entirely by candles, looks like a Gothic reading room. —Julia Thiel
