Charleston is the perfect vacation destination, with a seemingly endless array of things to do, an impeccable selection of top-rated hotels, and a constantly evolving restaurant scene. And the city's newest property, The Pinch, which opened quietly at the beginning of this month, will only solidify Charleston's reputation as the best city in the U.S., as voted by Travel + Leisure readers.

The Pinch offers guests a stylish environment to stay in and a memorable culinary adventure. Located at the heart of historic Charleston, The Pinch is housed in three separate buildings, two impeccably restored Victorian-style structures, part of the National Register of Historic Places, and a newly constructed one, blending the city's rich history and vibrant modern-day aesthetics. The property features 22 luxury rooms and suites and three residences available for extended stays. The sleek interiors include lush velvet sofas, vintage rugs, custom décor items, full kitchens, Italian marble farmhouse sinks and hand-painted terracotta Moroccan floor tiles in the bathrooms, ample closet spaces, and washers and dryers. The walls throughout the property are covered in beautiful artwork by local and international artists.

The sleek modern design continues in the common spaces, where it complements the traditional Old World Victorian aesthetic as a nod to the property's history and original architecture.

"After an extensive four-year journey to bring The Pinch to life through painstaking historically accurate restoration of two buildings from the late 1800s and one ground-up new building, The Pinch offers both the charm people come to Charleston to be immersed in as well as the conveniences and luxuries a fully renovated new property offers," Randall Cook, CEO and co-founder of Method Co., the development company and designer behind the property, told Travel + Leisure.

The hotel will also feature two restaurants, slated to open this summer. A turn-of-the-century oyster house and bar will treat patrons to fresh seafood and craft cocktails, while a destination restaurant with several dining areas will offer guests a seasonal menu "rooted in French techniques and southern traditions," as Cook explained. Another intimate bar, located in a former carriage house with a wood-burning fireplace, original pine floors, and a copper bar, will offer the city's most extensive whiskey list. The beautiful fireplace-outfitted patio off of the lobby will be the perfect spots to relax and have a drink or lunch during the day.

"We've designed The Pinch to be the ideal place for those looking to adventure a little deeper into all of the nuanced things Charleston has to offer," Cook added.
