Ok, so I finally made it to Shine on Saturday night and I have to say that my expectations were definitely exceeded. I went with a friend from L.A. and was excited about showing off my new neighborhood hot spot and at the same time was worried that it might be a flop. The opposite was true, the whole place was very cool. The decor, the drinks, the food, and the crowd even the DJ was fun and hip and relaxing at the same time. We had a Saki based drink and then switched to red wine followed with the special, lamb curry which was delicious. Shine has my vote for best bar in Charleston. I don’t want to necessarily shout that from the rooftops however because it was difficult as it was to get a seat at the bar.
