NOTE: On April 2, a late-night fire forced the closure of Light, The Brick, Speakeasy, and Squeeze. Stay tuned to the CP for more info on what's next and find out how you can help.
Known as “Charleston’s tightest bar,” Squeeze is indeed super skinny but there’s still plenty of room to post up at the long bar with a drink. How can you tell they’re serious about cocktails? They have a few bottles of Pappy Van Winkle displayed proudly above the bar, and an impressive spread of fresh fruit and herbs for muddling. Like most of their drinks, the boozy Churchill packs a serious punch with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Cointreau, champagne, and Angostura bitters. If you like it spicy, get the Sweet Heat Rita made with house-infused pineapple and jalapeño tequila. —Erica Jackson Curran Dish (Winter 2013)
