The Vendue is a combination of two unique boutique hotels – 19 Vendue and 26 Vendue – located across the street from one another. 19 Vendue is housed within five historic warehouses dating back to 1780 that have been combined to form one hotel. 26 Vendue is a combination of two historic warehouses dating back to the 1800s. Due to the historic nature of the buildings, no two rooms are alike and each is decorated with different period reproduction furnishings or true antiques.
The Vendue was renovated and “reborn” in 2014 to create Charleston’s first and only hotel dedicated to the arts – in all forms. Over 300 pieces of original art have been installed for our guests to enjoy. Our main exhibition space covers the entire public spaces of 19 Vendue. Additional installations are on display in all guestroom corridors, the public areas of 26 Vendue, and within our Gallery guest rooms.
“The Drawing Room” is one of Charleston’s most highly acclaimed downtown restaurant in the French Quarter district providing the perfect spot for cocktails and dinner. “The Rooftop” has been awarded “best rooftop bar” by Charleston City Paper since 2007! The energy rises on weekends when both locals and visitors alike converge on The Rooftop for a fun lively evening of socializing and unbeatable views. Our newest restaurant, Revival, is modern, yet relaxed dining with a focus on recipes and/or ingredients from South Carolina’s past.
The Vendue houses multiple event venues at our on-site restaurants and private space. We offer full-service catering, and our executive chef will provide custom menus and quotes for any event need. Every detail is expertly crafted to ensure that the only thing you need to think about on the day of your event is enjoying yourself and your guests.
