Set among cobblestone streets and brightly colored row houses, Emeline’s design elements were inspired by Charleston’s flora, fauna and its heritage as a port city. Accommodations range from The Atelier, the one-bedroom king, to The Corner Suite, offering multiple views of historic Charleston, and The Maisonette, which offers a bi-level suite with courtyard views.
Throughout the last century, 181 Church Street has had many iterations, guests and experiences, all contributing to Emeline’s unique identity.
In 1852, George W. Williams, a Charleston entrepreneur, expanded his wholesale grocery business by building on 181 Church Street. The business grew to be the largest of its kind in the South, generating millions of dollars in revenue. As time came and went, so did the occupants of 181 Church Street. Today at 181 Church Street, you’ll find Emeline.
As for dining, Frannie & The Fox will be the signature restaurant. Chef Tim Morton delivers a menu comprising sharable and approachable dishes with wood-fired regional ingredients showcasing Italian sensibilities. The restaurant will offer service in both an indoor and outdoor courtyard setting. Frannie & The Fox is a sister restaurant to the iconic Hank’s Seafood Restaurant. Additionally, Clerks Coffee Co. is a café with street-level access for grab-and-go drinks and space to work remotely or settle in with a book.
