Charleston beverage company to open state’s first ‘Cannabis dry bar’
A Charleston-based beverage company is opening what it claims to be South Carolina’s first cannabis-themed bar.
The team behind High Rise Beverage Co. will be opening a “cannabis dry bar” — the first of its kind in the state of South Carolina, according to a High Rise news release. The concept will be situated within a new Charleston Hemp Collective location and will serve a wide variety of hemp-derived THC-infused mocktails, the release stated.
“Our goal with opening this ‘dry bar’ within Charleston Hemp Collective was to create a more elevated experience for those seeking nonalcoholic alternatives,” High Rise Beverage founder Matt Skinner said in the release.
The James Island location is expected to open in June 2023 at 1989 Maybank Highway, Charleston.
The bar has a 25-person capacity and is 330 square feet, the release stated. The overall Charleston Hemp collective location is 1,448 square feet.
Additional details on the concept name and menu offerings are forthcoming, the release stated.
High Rise Beverage is now being distributed in South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and come April 1, 2023, in Florida. The product is also available nationally.
