Our Top Spots in Downtown Charleston for Curing a Hangover

Uptown Social :  While their breakfast sandwich concept, Bodega, moves to its new location on Ann Street, Greasy Spoon has opened in Uptown Social to serve both sweet and savory breakfast specials to hungry folks Friday through Sunday. Meatless eaters can rejoice in their vegan biscuits and gravy, while everyone else can gobble down Hair of the Dog Nachos or Banana Cream Pie Pancakes. Grab a Bodega Espresso Martini if you need an AM shot of caffeine and booze to get your head back on straight.


Daps :  Daps has become a popular downtown brunch spot for good reason! Their shredded “Hash” hashbrowns mimic Waffle House’s in style and preparation, which every Southerner knows is the absolute perfect thing to soak up last night’s poor choices. Pick either their Fruity Pebble or Captain Crunch pancakes for a little childhood nostalgia and grab one of their spectacular mimosas to add some extra juice to this perfect morning-after remedy.


JL’s Burgers at Lewis BBQ : Throw on a pair of sunglasses and get thee to the Lewis BBQ backyard for Red or Green Chile Cheeseburgers, Hot Gut Hotdogs, and Hatch Chile Cheese Fries to thoroughly cure what ails you. Plant-based burger patties are available for veg heads, and their frozen custards are perfect for taking the edge off of all that Texas-style heat. Need an elixir for the last remaining shred of headache? Their stellar margaritas will fix you up in no time.


Fuel : With a menu stacked with delights like wings, jerk chicken sandos, street tacos, and always-comforting plantains, you’re sure to find something at Fuel that will get you back on your feet. Sit outside on their ample patio or cozy up at the open-air bar to zone out to whatever sports are on while enjoying the best of both indoor AC and South Carolina sunshine. The real pro-tip here is to order the aptly-named Pain Reliever, and let it work its tropical magic on your body and soul.


El Pincho Taco : Sometimes it takes really screamin’ awesome Mexican food to fix a hangover, and El Pincho Taco is here for you on those struggle bus days. With a fantastic selection of authentically prepared tacos, tortas, and all of the other traditional Mexican specials that you know and deeply love, you’re in great hands at El Pincho. If you’re really feeling ready for the grave, we’d recommend their healing Sopes to restock your electrolytes and soothe your stomach. As far as hair of the dog, we are firm believers in Micheladas and El Pincho’s packs a fantastic punch that will launch you back into the land of the living.
