The Long Room at McCrady’s Tavern is a private dining and events space located on Unity Alley in historic downtown Charleston. For more than two centuries, the Long Room has been one of Charleston’s favorite gathering places for social affairs. Built by Edward McCrady in 1788, this magnificent space has attracted city leaders and socialites since its earliest days. The private dining room is renowned for the prestigious grand dinner party thrown for President George Washington during his southern tour in 1791, and it is recognized on the National Register of Historic Places and Landmarks. This warm and elegant space has 15-foot ceilings, two massive fireplaces, dramatic Venetian chandeliers, and is surrounded by large bay windows.
We offer guests a grand setting and a customized experience based on each event’s needs. Situated on the second floor above McCrady’s Tavern restaurant, The Long Room provides private amenities, including a dedicated kitchen and bar. Award-winning Chef Sean Brock and team will craft a menu of reimagined American classics. Paired with the selected menu, guests enjoy a curated selection of cocktails, beers and wine chosen by our sommelier.
As one of the South’s most decorated culinarians, Brock has received the James Beard Award for “Best Chef Southeast” in 2010 and was a finalist for “Outstanding Chef” in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. He hosted season two of Anthony Bourdain’s “The Mind of a Chef” on PBS, for which he won an Emmy. Brock’s cookbook Heritage was released in October 2014 and is a three-time New York Times bestseller and recipient of the 2015 James Beard Foundation Book Award for “American Cooking.”
The historic Long Room is available for private dining daily for lunch or dinner and can accommodate up to 44 guests. For more information, including pricing, layout and sample menus, please contact Lindsey Walker at 843-801-4299 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
