While R&B generally tends to be an underrated genre in clubbing life, it offers an unparalleled environment to any other genre. Setting the mood just right, with bass-boosted tunes and sultry notes, rhythm, and blues, can be a wonderful addition to the nightly playlist. And when it comes to Charleston, the city has a rich nightlife with both larger-scale and smaller clubs to cater to the public. If you know where to go, you’ll be heading in for a great night with your friends. 

Some of our top Charleston nightclub recommendations include Mynt, the NV Dance Lounge, and Silver Dollar. These and all the rest in the following list are some of the top-rated nightspots in the city. With regular live music shows (including both local and international acts) and a rotating DJ, you’ll be left buzzing on the dance floor. 

Mynt Charleston

Mynt on Calhoun Street is a classic nightclub in Charleston and happens to be one of the go-to places for dancing and drinks. While it’s a newer addition to the city’s clubs, it has quickly made its name in the market. There’s a fashionable cocktail bar for professionals during the weekdays and an excellent nightclub environment for the weekends. After passing security, you walk through a brick tunnel that leads into an outdoor courtyard and a door leading to the inside of the club.

NV Dance Lounge Charleston

At this Charleston dance club, regulars marvel at their bottle service and love the VIP area. The DJs have great music going at all times. So if you’re in the mood to have some drinks and hit the floor, NV is the place to be tonight. Overall, the NV Dance Lounge is much loved by customers and has a great environment, especially if dancing is on the schedule. So this is certainly one to add to your list!

Trio Charleston

Not only is this club multi-level, but it has possibly the best sound system in town. Trio features a lounge, a dance floor and a patio, so plenty of space for you to pick a spot. With daily live shows usually starting from 9 pm onwards, Trio is one of the hottest nightclubs in Charleston. With bass-boosted beats and a DJ that keeps you on your toes, you’ll have the time of your life on the dance floor. The club also has a lounge for you to relax in and an outdoor patio if you’re in the mood for some fresh air. And if that was not enough, they have the only self service bar in town!

Republic Garden & Lounge Charleston

Republic Garden & Lounge is a relatively fancier bar and restaurant located in the heart of downtown Charleston. The place offers classic cocktails, an extensive wine list, and of course, a full bar. Guests can enjoy live music in the newly opened outdoor garden patio nightly from 7 to 11 pm every night! And you can usually find rotating DJs playing the Top 40’s, techno, electronic, or other hits.

Deco Nightclub Charleston

Deco Nightclub is one of the ultimate VIP spots in Charleston, with a strict dress code. So while flip flops and graphic tees may not be allowed, it’s for a good reason! It has its own parking space which is always a plus point when you’re ready to party and don’t want to waste time finding a spot to park your vehicle. The crowd you find here is likely to be more polished.

Silver Dollar Charleston

Founded in December of 1999, the Silver Dollar is an excellent nightspot in Charleston’s downtown area. Even though it’s technically listed as a “bar” at times, it also has a dance floor and night environment that transforms it into a club. Known for its fun and relaxed atmosphere, you can find nightly live music here, along with great drink specials and music ranging from hip hop to techno.


Most Charleston clubs are centred around the Market Street and Upper King Street areas, but some also fall outside this territory. The city has some fantastic nightclubs that would be perfect for your R&B mood. Most of these clubs generally have a diverse playlist, with different tunes hitting up during the night. Some clubs have more than one floor, with different kinds of music playing on each. But if you’re looking for an R&B-infused club, we’d recommend checking out places like the Deco Nightclub and Trio.

The bass and low groove tunes in most rhythm and blues songs can often set the perfect mood and ambience for a night of drinking and dancing. Pair that with cool lighting and a sleek dance floor, and you’ve got yourself a night to remember! Many of these clubs also offer special discounts on some nights and other drink deals that you can get. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the menu for those mid-party snacks!
