This February Hank’s Seafood is celebrating 25 years of serving Lowcountry dishes to the Charleston community, and has revealed plans for an expansion.
The restaurant, which opened in 1999, is marking the milestone with anniversary events, programming and new offerings.
Hank’s opened on the corner of Hayne and Church Street in 1999, according to the release. The turn-of-the-century warehouse building that is now Hank’s was known as “an outlandish disco” that served as “the place to see and be seen” in the late 1970s, according to Hank’s website.
“Being a part of Hank’s Restaurant and menu history has been very meaningful to experience,” said Hank’s Seafood Executive Chef Tim Richardson in the release. “Celebrating the remarkable milestone of 25 years is a testament to the unwavering support from our guests, dedicated team members and partners. I take great pride in being a part of Hank’s team and family.”
Celebrating a silver anniversary
To kick off its anniversary in style, Hank’s is celebrating on March 2 with a ticketed cocktail party hosted at Hank’s Social Hall. Attendees will experience the restaurant’s history and traditions and classic Hank’s dishes, an open bar, live music and decor. Each guest will receive a Hank’s Seafood Restaurant Cookbook autographed by Culinary Director Frank McMahon. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased here.
Here’s what’s new at Hank’s
Beyond celebrating its 25th milestone this year, Hank’s plans to continue growing and serving the city of Charleston through its recently opened, elevated gathering and event space, Hank’s Social Hall, and luxury vacation rental, Hank’s Loft, the release stated.
Hank’s Social Hall offers catering from Hank’s Restaurant and seating for 120 guests and the Loft offers a three-bedroom luxury escape. The loft also makes an ideal gathering place for special occasions to host groups of up to 30 people.t
