5Church: What You Need To Know

Coming Soon 5Church CharlestonIt's been nearly a year since Mad River, a Market Street stalwart, unexpectedly and unceremoniously closed its doors. A couple weeks later it was announced that 5Church, a Charlotte-based brand, would take over the newly vacant location. After nearly a full year of prep work, the restaurant released a statement on Tuesday saying it plans to open this fall.

The press release included a few other tidbits about 5Church. Here's what you need to know:

  • Fittingly, the restaurant is opening in an historic church: The old Church of the Redeemer and Harriet Pickney Home For Seamen

  • It will serve New-American cuisine, craft cocktails, and other beverages

  • It will be open for dinner, lunch, and brunch

  • The restaurant’s food, service, and design will mimic its sister property in Charlotte

  • Décor includes stained glass windows, a white concrete bar, black leather banquettes, chandeliers, and large-scale pop-art

    • One of the most eye-catching parts of the interior is likely to be the hand-painted written verbiage of Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” on the church’s ceiling

  • 5Church will seat 200 guests with an outdoor patio and bar area

  • They will have a private dining room available for events

Holy City Sinner will keep you posted on the official first day of business.
