Best Place to Grab an Adult Beverage and Imagine You're a Drug Smuggler

82 Queen

Staff Pick

When the City Paper contacted Jason Ryan for an interview about his book Jackpot: High Times, High Seas, and the Sting that Launched the War on Drugs, and asked about a good place to meet, the answer came easily for the one-time State reporter: 82 Queen. And with good reason. The so-called gentlemen smugglers Ryan writes about not only made the Lowcountry their base of operations, the bar at 82 Queen was their go-to spot to chill out in Chucktown. And while those one-time outlaws have since moved on — many were thrown in the pokey, some have died, and others have given up a life of crime — 82 Queen remains.
