Zero Geroge Street exteriorZero George Street is an idyllic Charleston retreat with its equally enticing Zero Restaurant and Bar. Zero George is located in Charleston’s Ansonborough neighborhood and is made up of five buildings connected by an intimate network of courtyards and outdoor entertaining spaces. The building is a historic 18th-century carriage house reinvented as a fresh, contemporary design.

The hotel’s Soft French-hued palate and crisp white linens make the hotel feel luxurious and southern bred. Also, Circa Lighting (based in Savannah, GA) and North Carolina made furniture furnishes the former cottage which emphasizes the hotel’s classic and contemporary design.

However, if you’re not ready for Zero George’s hotel or restaurant, make sure to grab a coffee, French croissant, and delicious Hot Toddy at the Zero Cafe + Bar. Here, you can relax with a southern Charleston view on its tranquil porch. In other words, Zero George Street is just another mega reason to visit the South’s exquisite Charleston, South Carolina.
