Venue Setting

Situated in the prime of Charleston’s nightlife scene, Upstairs at Midtown is a unique private event venue located in the exciting Upper King Street “Design District” of downtown Charleston. The circa-1760 building makes the venue one of the oldest restored spaces in the city. A lengthy renovation restored the historic beauty to the venue by featuring polished heart pine floors, exposed brick walls, original fireplaces, coffered ceilings, and authentic crystal chandeliers. Perhaps the most noteworthy feature of the venue is Upper King’s only private rooftop patio.
