The Refinery, Charleston’s newest mixed-use development designed for a work and play lifestyle, located at 1640 Meeting Street Rd., will begin hosting live concerts and events at its new outdoor music amphitheater this weekend. The new venue, in conjunction with Charleston-based entertainment agency Ear for Music, will welcome a variety of local, regional and national performing acts to the Lowcountry, including Trouble No More and Trevor Hall August 13th and 14th. Tickets and additional information be found here.

“Our goal was to create a dynamic space that is accessible to the community, yet unique to downtown Charleston,” shares Lindsay Nevin, owner and CEO of The Flyway Companies. “We can’t wait to host an array of talented performers and entertainers from across the country right here in Charleston. The Refinery will be a place where locals and visitors alike can come together and experience the Lowcountry lifestyle in a unique way.”

The Refinery’s outdoor space accommodates up to 1,500 patrons and will offer fast and fun food and drink options during events via the property’s anchor tenants, The Whale, Sweet Grass Vodka and a new restaurant that will be announced soon. The Refinery building features 17 commercial spaces, as well as an outdoor rooftop called “The Platform,” which will offer an elevated VIP experience for concertgoers. The Platform is also available to rent for private events for up to 150 guests.

The Refinery Amphitheater features a covered stage, green space, permanent restrooms and concessions in retrofitted shipping containers, as well as unique greenrooms for artists, housed in a renovated railcar. Inspiration for the retrofitted railcar greenroom came from the property’s historical roots and industrial surroundings, which was once owned by Standard Oil. Developed by The Flyway Companies and Mountain Shore Properties, The Refinery is an urban mixed-use development located on Charleston’s upper peninsula at 1640 Meeting Street Rd., situated between North Charleston and downtown Charleston. Designed for a work and play lifestyle, The Refinery attracts locals and visitors alike with retail, hospitality, office space and special event venues, as well as an outdoor music amphitheater.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2021 by Lowcountry Boil

As kids are out of school and parents are back to work, Kids Garden is the perfect solution for busy families. The drop in creative arts learning center was built around filling the gap in traditional childcare. It provides parents peace of mind so they can have a stimulating, convenient and safe place for their children to thrive, learn and grow. As many childcare providers have less availability due to the pandemic, Kids Garden offers an affordable, by the hour alternative to committed childcare options.  “If parents don’t have the luxury of close family in town, the solid babysitter down the street or a trusted best friend as a neighbor, no worries,” said Founder Maren Anderson-Moore. “Whether kids drop in for an hour, join our weekly afternoon art and enrichment classes or enroll in a summer camp program, we’ve got you covered!”

With locations in Charleston, Asheville, Steamboat Springs and Houston coming soon, Kids Garden was founded to encourage individual growth in a natural and open learning environment. Children can learn, explore, create and interact with old and new friends, get exercise, enjoy music, take part in circle time, learn a new yoga pose, try a new instrument or become an exciting character while engaging in pretend play. Whether parents would like to make a quiet trip to the grocery store or need to focus on work, they can count on Kids Garden’s flexible hours and experienced childcare providers.
