Parcel 32 & The Parlour at Parcel 32

 Charleston,  South Carolina
Hanna Raskin says it best, "officially, Parcel 32 is named for the designation given to its surrounding block on an 1888 fire insurance map. Nowadays, though, “parcel” is synonymous with “whole package.” The name still applies." 
This lovely restaurant was built as a home in 1837 to Mr. Amme and his popular bakery. The story goes that he lived in the front of the house but the bakery was in the back, closer to the train station where he received or delivered bakery parcels all day. Ticket stubs from the train station were found during renovation and framed in the dining room, as well as additional artifacts. A hand painted mural of a SC Railroad Company Stock Bond was commissioned to include bakery elements to remind us of where Parcel 32 originated. 
Parcel32 has been named to @usatoday’s list of “Standout Restaurant Openings in 2018” and @eater_charleston’s “Hottest Restaurants in Charleston Right Now” list!

"What ultimately distinguishes Parcel 32 is that it’s the most fully realized restaurant to open in Charleston .... and on top of that, it’s terrific." Hanna Raskin, Post and Courier
The Parlour at Parcel 32 is a second story cocktail bar in a warm and inviting space. Modern Victorian decor is styled throughout with an oversized floral wall covering, a collection of botanical and portraiture art, and tufted and fringed velvet furniture.
