AV Connections has recently been back to one of Charleston’s best meeting and power lunch venues, The Charleston Harbour Club; to provide meeting audiovisual at Charleston Harbour Club. A historic building in the heart of Charleston’s renowned cobble-stoned original colonial city, the Harbor Club is the perfect place to host out of town meeting attendees and give them a real feel for Charleston’s four hundred year history.
With both indoor and outdoor facilities for hosting celebrations and conferences, the Harbor Club is both refined and elegant. During the year it sees as many power meetings as weddings. It boasts a huge outdoor terrace for which we often provide wedding lighting as well. The terrace commands an incredible view of the Charleston Harbor on the Ashley River and the Ravenel Bridge to the east and all of South of Broad Charleston to the south west.
Many attending meetings, conferences, and weddings at the Harbour Club now in it’s two hundred year old structure may not realize that aside from it’s esteemed survival history, through fires and floods, it was also the home of the restaurant which created Charleston’s reputation as a fine-dining town. While the Harbour Club opened in 1994 as a venue and membership business club, it was previously known as Colony House. Colony House was Franz Meier’s ode to fine European influenced dining in Charleston. Open for forty years, the Colony House was Charleston’s celebration standby for two generations. Eventually, the owners sold the business and Colony House gave way to the Harbour Club. Not without forever leaving a mark on the memories of native Charlestonians who still lament its closing. Many are members of the famed Harbour Club now.
The food is still just as impressive as it was when Colony House was in full swing and so, if you are lucky enough to get an event or wedding invitation to Harbour Club, take advantage to see the views and have a moment with one of our great historic entertaining structures. The tradition very much continues and we are pleased to provide audiovisual at Charleston Harbour Club.
