A hotel with a rooftop lounge and performance stage has opened in downtown Charleston.
TMGOC Ventures, a partnership between The Montford Group and Opterra Capital, opened its latest project, the Moxy Charleston Downtown, at 547 Meeting St.
Moxy Charleston, which welcomed its inaugural guests on Wednesday, April 5, offers a high-energy hospitality experience, featuring vibrant public spaces and unobstructed views of the Ravenel Bridge, according to a news release.
The property features a 7,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge featuring a sleek 10-seat rooftop bar, a ground floor Starbucks and a performance stage featuring a roster of local DJs and musicians, the release stated.
The TMGOC team broke ground on the property in May 2021, and its completion makes it the 13th fully-operational hotel property in the joint-venture’s growing portfolio, according to the release.
“Moxy Charleston was a labor of love in the truest sense of the term, and we couldn’t be prouder of the finished product,” The Montford Group founder and CEO Sunju Patel said in the release. “Each and every corner of this property was thoughtfully designed to provide the most unique and impactful experience possible, and we hope our guests feel that when they walk through our doors.”
Moxy is the first of four downtown Charleston hotel projects in the works for TMGOC Ventures, with the Thompson, the Montford Hotel and the Charlestonian coming soon, the release stated. A Moxy Charlotte location is also under construction by TMGOC.
“There’s no question that Moxy is a hospitality experience unlike any other in Charleston, and it’s been a real joy to help bring this unique concept to life,” Opterra Capital Founder and CEO Glenn Alba said in the release. “With several more hotel projects in the pipeline for the downtown area, Charleston has certainly not seen the last of TMGOC.”
Moxy Charleston, built by Construction Professionals, Inc., was designed by Studio MCG and LS3P, and features interiors by Streetsense, according to the release. It is managed by Aimbridge Hospitality as part of Marriott’s Bonvoy portfolio.
