Start your New Year's Eve off right in the Holy City! Whether you are a local looking for a night on the town, or a visitor looking for inspiration, these three events will help you celebrate 2018 in classic low country style.
1. Masquerade at the Mansion Ball
Held downtown at the Restoration Hotel, the Mansion Ball combines mystery and fun in the form of a roaring 20's themed masquerade celebration. There are multiple live acts of music slated to perform, including Charleston's master violinist Seth G., and DJ Brandie Cannady. Prepare for a top-shelf open bar to come with cost of ticket, as well as light finger foods. And if it's a chilly evening, don't fret - coat check is available.
