Innovative, Exciting & Delicious - The most discerning connoisseurs will be in awe of Hotel Bennett’s signature restaurant and bar. It's effortlessly elegant ambiance reminiscent of Europe and unlike any dining experience in Charleston. In addition to Gabrielle, the signature restaurant, enjoy the sophisticated Camellias Bar, which includes an etched-mirrored ceiling and reclaimed pink marble from the former Charleston Library for its floor, bar, and tabletops; the chic La Pâtisserie; and the iconic Fiat Lux.
"Gabrielle Restaurant" - Gabrielle marries Old-World allure with the South's character within an elegant and inviting atmosphere overlooking Charleston's historic Marion Square. Drawing from his culinary background working extensively in both Europe and New Orleans, Executive Chef Michael Sichel has developed a menu that is inspired by the bounty of Coastal Carolina. Featuring the city's finest outdoor dining terrace, the refined and lively restaurant is classically Charlestonian, serving guests daily with quintessential hospitality, warmth, and grace. Arched floor-to-ceiling windows ascend over the restaurant's exquisite bar, serving craft cocktails, shimmering oysters, Belgian Frites, and more. Beyond, the enchanting two-story dining room delivers intimate spaces, fine wines, and premium cuts of steaks and sustainable seafood – creating an experience exclusive to The Holy City.
Camellias - A Champagne Bar - As colorful as its namesake flower, Camellias is Charleston’s premier Champagne Bar, featuring an extensive collection of bottle and by-the-glass offerings paired with a decadent selection of caviar, ceviche, and tartare. Additionally, Camellias offers a champagne-inspired cocktail program and a collection of delectable desserts, including the signature Camellias Cake and afternoon tea. The bar’s stunning pink hue reflects a piece of Charleston history: marble that once clad the library building where Hotel Bennett stands. The marble was reclaimed, restored, and now graces the bar and tabletops. The famous Faberge jewel boxes inspired the egg-shaped room design and featured four art pieces that depict the Camellia flower. Reflective finishes, including an etched-mirror ceiling and beautiful strings of crystal cascading from the chandelier, add both shimmer and style to the atmosphere.
"La Pâtisserie" - Serves the Holy City’s finest breads and pastries. Whether guests choose to dine in or are on-the-go, renowned French Pastry Chef Remy Funfrock ensures authenticity and freshness. La Pâtisserie opens early, offering sweet and savory pastries, alongside a full coffee bar. Throughout the day, it presents a selection of sandwiches crafted with artisanal bread, prepared sides, and sweet delicacies, like macarons and éclairs. And, of course, it is the only place to go for a slice of the famed Camellias cake.
The Spa - Disconnect - Unwind - Rejuvenate - The hotel’s signature spa is an urban oasis in the heart of Downtown Charleston.
