Most students are surprised by the variety of bars and clubs that Charleston actually offers, so if you’re over 21, you have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the city’s nightlife. Many bars and clubs are not very close to campus, though. Students frequent the bars on King Street and other nearby blocks, and students who are 18-and-over can often find a place or two that let them in up until 10 p.m. After that time, security starts to crack down, and the underagers are better off finding a party on St. Philip or Rutledge Streets.
Anyone under the age of 21 should most likely stick to house parties without an ID. House parties are popular at the College of Charleston, and though many are brief because of the close proximity of the houses in the city, there is always something going on during the weekends. Even parties that are loosely centered on a specific group, like the sailing team or the girls’ basketball team, are welcoming to anyone willing to pay five bucks at the door. If you do have a fake ID, use it carefully because the police will take it if they have even the slightest suspicion. Charleston students of drinking age have more options to choose from, and even though the city’s bars and clubs are mostly populated by older people, they still have a good time anyway.
