Exploring Savannah’s Riverfront

Experience Savannah’s creative spirit during your stay in the revitalized River Street neighborhood, which is one of the most exciting culinary and cultural destinations in the Hostess City of the South. See the way the city’s artists and collectors, entrepreneurs and chefs blend Southern heritage with the ward’s blooming creative and intellectual revolution. Become a part of our vibrant riverfront community during your visit.

Books on Bay

A bibliophile’s dream come true, Books on Bay sells vintage and rare books dating back to the 1600s. Its collection of thousands of books spans four centuries, from Nancy Drew to early Revolutionary America biographies.

RMC Boutique

Ladies in need of a new outfit for a night out in Savannah can peruse local designers at RMC Boutique. It’s a family-owned operation with profusely feminine decor: pink floral displays, a taffy-colored vanity. Sip free bubbles or infused waters while you try on stylish, Southern-inspired clothing.

City Market

Since the 1700s, Savannahians have converged at this open-air market to shop, mingle and enjoy live music. There are a handful of places to eat and drink, but come here for the local art galleries and niche shops (cigars, souvenirs, beads and baked goods).

Mata Hari

You’ll need a password to enter this speakeasy-style lounge on an alleyway off River Street. Once through the wooden door, you’ll find a dimly-lit space with a distinct 1920s vibe. Locals gather at the handsome mahogany bar for stiff cocktails made by expert mixologists—in period costume, of course. Swing by on select nights to enjoy a burlesque show as well. Pro tip: Ask The Alida concierge for help getting into this exclusive hotspot.

Service Brewing Co

Visit this local brewery founded by local husband and wife team Kevin Ryan and Meredith Sutton. Their mission is not only to make great craft beer but to donate a portion of our revenue to charities that support service men and women and first responders. Closed Sunday-Tuesday, so get your sipping done later in the week.

Treylor Park

This bar and restaurant is a great late-night hangout, with a whimsical food menu—who knew PB&J chicken wings would be so good?—local brews and standout cocktails served in its outdoor patio. Order the Georgia Mule, a local variation of the Moscow classic that swaps in peach bitters and bourbon.

Huey’s on the River

For a New Orleans-take on traditional Southern fare, head to Huey’s, which overlooks the river and lamp-lit cobblestone street, and crawfish etouffee, gumbo, and fried oyster po’boys, along with pillowy beignets blanketed in powdered sugar.

The Cotton Exchange Tavern

Housed in a former cotton warehouse, this casual tavern has excellent seafood. The telltale sign? Lengthy wait times. But once you’ve tried the crab chowder and shrimp and grits, you’ll understand why. Show up early to put your name down for a table, or grab food to-go and picnic along the river.

Café M

Order flaky croissant sandwiches topped with gooey cheeses at this French-style bistro, café and bakery tucked away block in from River Street. Other menu favorites include fresh-baked quiches and pastries, not to mention the perfect mimosas.
