Cannon Green is one of Charleston’s most unique properties, and indeed, a microcosm of the city itself—capturing its romance, history, preservation, beauty, charm and cosmopolitan style all in one extraordinary venue. Located in the Cannonborough – Elliotborough neighborhood, Cannon Green incorporates a 19th century Charleston Single House façade within our indoor Garden Room- a refined and airy 75-seat private event space, along with two adjoining entertainment spaces—a lush and intimate Courtyard and our spacious historic Trolley Room. We designed our venue to give guests both indoor and outdoor entertaining options, and we are pleased to be able to accommodate varying sizes of events. The result is an innovative fusion of history, hospitality, function and charm to create a vibrant space for hosting your festivities.

If you’re celebrating with a large crowd, our Trolley Room and Courtyard or Garden Room can host receptions or full-service seated dinners featuring Cannon Green’s uncompromising culinary expertise.

Don’t miss our Chef’s Table—one of Charleston’s most unique private small group dining experiences.
The Trolley Room
Cannon Green’s signature event venue. This 3,000 square-foot, column-free space features the original king trusses, reflects the warehouse’s original architecture, and evokes an urban-infused charm of times past. The historic and inviting atmosphere coupled with modern features, such as year-round climate control, white oak wood floors,ambient lighting, a Sonos sound system and established locations for sound stages comprise the thoughtful touches necessary for today’s seamless events.
The Courtyard adjoins the Trolley Room and includes a tranquil garden with reflecting pools and rows of statuesque palmettos. Host your ceremony or begin your evening with an alfresco cocktail hour in the Courtyard. It offers options for food display stations, portable bars, evocative landscape lighting, candlelit lanterns, and a Sonos sound system. A beautiful clear-top tent can be installed in
the Courtyard for an additional fee.
The Garden Room
The Garden Room, centered around the restored, original façade of an 1840’s Charleston single house, offers authentic historic local flavor combined with tasteful contemporary design. With 1,500 square-foot versatile floor plan, the Garden Room offers comfortable elegance and privacy for corporate entertaining, rehearsal dinners, full-day retreats, luncheons and evening receptions. Events in this unique, full-service venue highlight both Charleston’s culinary renaissance and timeless aesthetic. The private Garden Room, which includes bar, tabletop and chairs, is adjacent to the Trolley Room and Courtyard, but rented separately.
The classic-meets-cosmopolitan ambiance of The Garden Room, Courtyard, and Trolley Room mirror our culinary approach: take the ultimate ingredients—whether an architectural treasure or the perfection of just-caught seafood—and uplift them with a deft touch of imagination and expertise.
