Down off of Highway 17 in Charleston, South Carolina, there's a place where the air is sticky and the beach music blares till last call. That place is J.B.

On any given night you can walk in to find either a beach music and shag dancing vinyl party, or one of many local cover bands covering the old doo-wop standards. Drop in for a bit of nostalgia, or perhaps be introduced to a great era in American music. Call for event dates and activities.

No, this venue doesn't get its name from the popular 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' story, but rather because of its tin foil decor that appears to slither across the room when the flashing stage lights are worked into a frenzy.

The Tin Roof is a snazzy addition to the West Ashley bar scene, and it definitely makes all the cool cats this side of Charleston purr with delight.

Plus there's a menu filled with unique bar bites, like oxtail sliders or truffled tater tots.
