After 18 years of serving Charleston at King Street's premier dining location, Sermet's Downtown and The Mezz have come together to offer exclusive private dining.

Decorated to mirror the first floor by Charleston's brilliant visionary and designer, John David Madison, The Mezz is the perfect place to entertain guests. Surrounded by large windows with a prime view of King Street, floor to ceiling draperies, exposed brick walls, antique heart pine floors, white table cloths, linen chair covers, red roses, and a beautiful raised stage, the room begs you to relax in the warm, intimate, elegant, and yet relaxed atmosphere.
