Tucked away in a historic home in downtown Charleston is Muse, a cozy restaurant and bar reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa with an eclectic mixture of architectural and design details.  It is comprised of numerous rooms, which offer private settings for dining.  Local fare is melded with the cuisines of Italy, Spain, France, and Greece, featuring delicious preparations of fresh fish & seafood, savory meats, homemade pasta and bread, and salads. The extensive wine list complements the experience and offers 100 selections by the glass and 500 selections by the bottle. The lively bar empties onto a terrace, offering outdoor cocktails or dining from the full menu.  Muse is open daily for dinner from 5:00pm to 10:00pm and serves a Late Night Bar Menu until Midnight on Fridays & Saturdays.
