If Yelp allowed 6 stars, I would give The Room on Meeting 7 stars.
We were looking for a venue for our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner for 45 folks, followed by a Welcome Party for about 120 folks and found The Room on Meeting. Nicole was fantastic to work with in planning in the months ahead of the actual event. She hosted us for a “tasting” as we got closer and helped with our menu choices. They went over the top in helping to decorate the space. It looked wonderful and all our guests commented on how wonderful it was.
The food was about the best I’ve had in Charleston, the bar was very well stocked with our drink package items and the staff kept the beverages flowing all night. Prime rib, salmon, smashed potatoes, on and on, every last item was beyond delicious!
The staff provided perhaps the best service I ever received in Charleston – they could simply not possibly do enough to make sure every last guest was treated like royalty. I don’t care if I’m in a fancy-schmancy pretentious $200 a meal place or a dive bar; service matters to me. The Room on Meeting achieved perfection; every last staff member. Pricing was about right for downtown Charleston, perhaps even one of the more economical places downtown.
I give The Room on Meeting my highest recommendation for an event like ours!

Working with Nicole and her staff at Room on Meeting was a wonderful experience. Arranging a destination wedding in Charleston was a challenge! Each time I contacted them about my daughter’s wedding reception, they were prompt and helpful, returning every contact by phone, email and even texts.
When we arrived to see their event space, Nicole took several hours out of an already busy afternoon to discuss everything with us again, making many ingenious suggestions to improve our event, without running the budget thru the roof.
During the planning period, I continued to work with Nicole on our event. She was always positive, upbeat, encouraging and ready to help in any way she could with any question or problem I threw her way.
Then wedding week arrived! Tropical storm Alberto was bearing down on Charleston, and heavy rain was forecast for the afternoon that my daughter’s outdoor wedding in the park was planned in downtown Charleston. Nicole stepped up to offer that we could move the ceremony inside the reception space, with all kinds of ideas of ways to arrange their space to make it pretty and inviting enough to make up for having it inside during a tropical storm. Once we had a plan, she never missed a beat on taking care of the seating, the décor, and all of the details needed to pull it all together. She went above and beyond to create a beautiful, versatile event space, and she made sure the room was perfect down to the last detail. All of this while supervising her wonderful staff, who provided bar service, catering, set up and clean up for the wedding and reception.
Oh, and the food was delicious as well! The bride and groom wanted barbecue for their wedding reception, and the barbecue and the side dishes were all excellent.
All in all, I cannot say enough good things about the Room on Meeting, and what a great job they did with my daughter’s wedding. I highly recommend them for any event you are planning. – Wedding Wire Review

My wife and I recently had our rehearsal dinner at the Downtown Charleston Room on Meeting venue and we were thoroughly impressed. The food and beverages provided were fantastic and the staff was above and beyond! They made our dinner stress free and did everything to make us feel comfortable and we did. – Wedding Wire Review
I cannot rate The Room on Meeting highly enough! We had our speakeasy themed wedding ceremony and reception there and it was phenomenal!
Operating Partners Josh and Nicole were very approachable and helpful during the planning process, and were also amazingly accommodating and did everything within their power to make sure the day went off without a hitch. Really great people to work with. The rest of the staff were fun and professional in making everything happen in a timely manner.
The venue has a great southern, exposed brick feel, and you can’t find a better venue price anywhere in Charleston. It was also incredibly convenient and economical to have the in-house catering, table and chairs set up/tear down, table cloths, dining ware, and bar service. The appetizers and main-course were delicious and several guests commented on how impressed they were with the food. Since almost everything was provided in-house, the only other vendors we needed were: photographer, photobooth, and audio equipment.
The venue was perfect for our guest list of about 75 and almost everyone stopped by to tell us it was the best wedding they’ve been to; even our photographer is considering planning his wedding there! The Room on Meeting greatly exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend it. -Ivy C.
Lovely venue hidden on the roof top of sticky fingers. Beautiful brick archways and original wooden floors help give this gem an added Charleston flair at a affordable price. That with the bonus of a parking garage located right behind it made this a great find for us. -Wedding Wire Review
The place was beautiful for my July wedding. Loved the historical look. The staff was also awesome and very accommodating!!! -Wedding Wire Review
I helped coordinate a January wedding at The Room and they were absolute professionals. Josh has a real love for his employees that transferred over to some great service for us. Nicole was all over helping us set up and they made sure we had all the help we needed so the bride and groom could stay as stress free as possible. They catered their own food from downstairs and we were totally pleased – great Charleston BBQ. The venue easily held our 75-guest ceremony and reception and we thought the price was phenomenal for both the location and the service we received. This space is great for any kind of theme or design you want to make happen and I would love to work with this venue again. -The Knot Review
