Charleston visitors guide, eat, sleep & play at Zero George
I’m thrilled to be writing this, as this series has been long over due. I received messages asking what to do in Charleston, where to eat and where to stay. And, if you are one of my clients, you’re lucky to get a tour of our magical city and an earful of why I love it so much.
I have had Zero George on my radar since it first opened. If you are looking to experience real Charleston charm, you have found it. The hotel and restaurant of Zero George are old Charleston single homes, remodeled, with a courtyard and quite the Charleston experience. The details of this beautiful hotel speak for themselves.
You know how Charleston folks are always talking about these piazzas and these breezes? You can first hand experience what it’s like to have an amazingly concocted cocktail from the bar, while enjoying it with friends on the piazza. You are spoiled here, these piazzas are larger then most I’ve sat on.
After a night of enjoying Charleston and the piazza’s, you cross the courtyard to beautiful accommodations. The styling is impeccable and the charm exceptional.
One of my favorite offerings of Zero George are the bicycles. There’s no better way to get around historic Charleston and take in the scenery then via bike. It gives you time to slowly peek through the iron gates into courtyards, discover hidden alleys and easy for quick stops at one of our cafe’s.
Finally, not to miss is the restaurant located within the hotel. Before dinner we enjoyed cocktails. There are many beautiful spaces to sit and converse.
My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner in a cozy corner. We were treated to deviled eggs with caviar, bacon, mustard seed and poached black truffle; 50 day dry age sirloin, Caramelized Kabocha Squash, Layered Carrot, Aged Madera Ju, by the extremely talented chef, Vinson Petrillo. It was quite the experience and I fully understand why it has 2014 Best New Food Hotel by Condé Nast Traveler.
We look forward to going back soon and greatly appreciate Zero George for inviting us to be a part of the experience.
