Our Story

We’re Poogan’s Courtyard, Charleston’s full-service historic event space. Our special event venue is perfect for upscale events and memorable gatherings, right in the heart of downtown Charleston. 


There’s something to be said about making one call to plan your next event. The service at Poogan’s Courtyard is two-fold. You can reserve our space for your special occasion, and we’ll also fully cater your event. Did we mention we also have an on-site bar? 


Lowcountry cuisine is our specialty, and if you’re looking for a fresh spin on the true taste of Charleston, our menu will delight your tastebuds and impress your guests. Whether you’d like a formal plated dinner or a casual buffet, our menus are world-class and fully customizable.


The charm of Charleston is not lost on us, and it’s our favorite thing about our event space. From the exposed brick walls to the original heart-of-pine flooring to the quintessential courtyard and stylish fixtures, you can feel the rich history in our space. We designed Poogan’s Courtyard to be a blank canvas. It shines on its own, but you can add the finishing touches to truly make it yours. 


Book a tour today. We’d love to show you around and help you to imagine the possibilities!
