Perhaps the best kept secret in downtown Charleston, Elliotborough Mini Bar is a quality coffee shop by day and neighborhood hangout/live music venue by night. Located in the Elliotborough district of downtown, as the name suggests, one could easily pass this place and not even know what he or she was missing out on. It is nestled among the rows of Charleston style houses just before the crosstown parkway; a beacon for the hungry, the thirsty, and the live music enthusiasts that can be found everyday on the peninsula. Whether you need an early morning pick-me-up, a midday snack, or a nightcap while you're face to face with the singer/songwriter who is performing that night (it’s pretty cozy in there), this is the joint you want to pay a visit to. The best part about Elliotborough Mini Bar is the fact that it is never crowded, and welcomes those who have never been in before, the best of both worlds.
