18. Thoroughbred Club at the Charleston Place Hotel

CITY: Charleston, N.C.

Sure, most people go to the bar for alcoholic beverages, but at the Thoroughbred Club they do it a little different. You can have a light lunch that includes sandwiches and a pot of whatever tea intrigues you most. If you need something stronger than that you can get a bottle of bubbly for under 20 bucks. In the evening you can have your usual cocktail, beer, whiskey, or anything else that you’re accustomed to having—their drink menu is longer than a roll of toilet paper. Just save room for dessert.
