An Old Village favorite has come back to life! I am thrilled to learn that The Post House is officially opened for business!
The Post House is comprised of a ground floor tavern and bar and seven cozy hotel rooms on the second and third floors. Additionally, the “Rose Room” is a private events space located on the second floor, overlooking charming Pitt Street. Designed with both the local and visitor in mind, Post House is a blend of historic charm and modern amenities.The Post House team consists of owner/operators Kate and Ben Towill of Charleston-based design and hospitality firm Basic Projects (Basic Kitchen); Executive Chef Evan Gaudreau (Renzo); and Property GM Jonathan Bentley (Obstinate Daughter).
The restaurant is a casual, lively, and family-friendly spot serving simple and seasonal contemporary American food. Influenced by the region, Gaudreau’s menu features an array of seasonable snacks, raw bar options, fresh pastas, as well as local seafood, sustainably raised meats and plenty of vegetarian dishes. A James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef nominee in 2019 and Eater Charleston Chef of the Year2019 Gaudreau was most recently chef at Renzo and has spent the past several months working the land with local farm Spade + Clover. A Boston native and Culinary Institute of America grad, Gaudreau brings an immense love of food culture, anthropology and sharing great meals to Post House.Post House’s beverage program is a celebration of both old and new, bringing together spirit-driven classics and seasonally-inspired libations, as well as a varied, approachable wine list with bottles from all over the globe.
Built in 1896, 101 Pitt Street has a long-standing history as a neighborhood hub,housing a restaurant and inn for many decades.The space underwent a top-to-bottom renovation, in which the fitst-floor layout was reimagined by moving the bar to face Pitt Street, while the main dining room moved to the back, open to the outdoor courtyard. Kate Towill served as lead designer for the project, outfitting each space uniquely in stylish and functional antiques, vintage rugs, playful fabrics, local art, archival wallpaper and handcrafted fixtures. Inspired by travels to laid-back,seaside inns around the world, Towill brings both whimsy and character to the beloved building.
The inn at Post House opened on Monday, August 24 and features seven distinctly decorated rooms, a relaxing home away from home for staycationers and travelers alike. With oversized windows, original wood floors, fully renovated bathrooms, comfy beds, bespoke robes, and locally-curated mini bars, each Post House room features plenty of charm and comfort.
