Parcel 32 is bringing a new bar to its popular King Street location. The Parlour will debut in Parcel 32’s upstairs space on New Year’s Eve with an opening party to celebrate the first look and taste, as well as welcome 2019 with friends and family. Since its opening in June, Parcel 32 has focused on providing a warm and inviting space for guests to gather and enjoy handcrafted cocktails and local fare from executive chef Shaun Brian. The Parlour was inspired by the traditional welcoming center of older homes, in keeping with Parcel 32’s nod to its 19th century Charleston single dwelling. The relaxed, yet upscale cocktail lounge will provide a full bar with a focus on classic libations, as well as wine and beer; food from chef Brian including the popular pecan meal hush puppies, blended smash burger and oysters rock’d; rotating selection of house-made sweets; weekly live music and pop-up events. Following the New Year’s Eve launch party, The Parlour will be open beginning Jan. 2, Tuesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to close with happy hour Tuesday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. and late-night dining Fridays and Saturdays from 10 p.m. to midnight.

The Parlour’s opening party on Monday, Dec. 31 will begin at 9 p.m. and includes a full premium bar, passed cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres, bubbles bar, midnight champagne toast, DJ and a photo booth. The all-inclusive cost for the evening is $175 per person. To reserve your spot at this exclusive first look event, visit Eventbrite for tickets.

The Parlour is considered the “fraternal twin” of Parcel 32 and its design will reflect a more feminine side of Parcel 32’s modern influences with historical elements including floral patterns, framed botanicals and rich hues of colors. The house in which The Parlour and Parcel 32 reside was built in 1837 during the Victorian Era, which interior designer Whitney Rietz Eller of Whitney Rietz Designs used as inspiration behind The Parlour’s modern Victorian look. The indoor space is comprised of cocktail lounge tufted and fringed seating including plush velvet couches, comfy chairs and ottomans next to the upstairs outdoor piazza overlooking King Street. A curated collection of art will surround the feature wall with an antique Victorian mantle repurposed from a downtown Charleston home. An oyster cart, service station and coffee tables are all custom made by North Carolina artist Stephen Torrence.

Parcel 32’s first floor bar will continue to be another gathering space for eating and imbibing. Both bars will share the same menus, opening hours, happy hour and late-night dining options. Parcel 32 is also planning a New Year’s Eve dinner on Monday, Dec. 31 with seating available from 5:30 to 8:45 p.m. Special à la carte dishes will include scallops, New York strip steak, day boat catch fish and a variety of sides and desserts. Reservations can be made on OpenTable.
