In 35 years Keith Jones has opened 30 new restaurants around Charleston. And now, for the first time instead of leasing, he and his partners purchased the building for their newest King Street restaurant venture, Stars Rooftop & Grill Room."We're here for the long term," said Jones, Managing Partner of Rooftop Sun, LLC. It's something we thought we should do to firm up our future here on King Street."
The building at 495 King Street was purchased for $1.9 million with Buddy Bebergal and Kit Regnery of Carolina Commercial, LLC representing the seller T Mouse 83, LLC and Jim Moring of the Commonwealth Company representing the buyer.
Stars Rooftop & Grill Room has been a dining hit since opening with the main restaurant and bar on the first floor, banquet space on the second floor and the largest rooftop bar on Upper King on the third floor. Stars offers seasonally inspired cuisine using locally sourced ingredients, sustainable seafood, steaks and specialty dishes prepared on a live fire wood grill and rotisserie.
