Here are things we’re asked all the time…

and some other stuff we thought you may like to know.

I think I left my credit card last night…2022-01-25T14:47:21-05:00

Credit cards left overnight will be kept at the venue for two weeks, after two weeks they will be destroyed. Cards can be picked up daily on the deck beginning at 4 pm. A 20% gratuity will be added to any tab left open overnight.

What time will the headliner start, what time will they finish?2021-07-01T18:26:56-04:00

Short answer: The door time listed on the website is when we begin to let people in the venue, show time is when we anticipate the opener will take the stage. This is a tricky thing, friends. The general rule is; doors open – people come in, grab a cold refreshing beverage or a bite to eat, socialize with friends, post a selfie on Instagram, and an hour or so later the opener takes the stage. The opening act normally plays anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and soon after the headliner comes on. We print out a handy little schedule nightly and post it at the front door and around the venue, but it’s still just an estimate. Remember, you’re here to experience something special, so resist the urge to check the time every 2 minutes and let your proverbial hair down. Many of these bands have traveled from far and wide to come spend the evening with you. There may be a hiccup along the way. Some bands will play for 90 minutes others would play until 4 in the morning if we could let them, but everyone must be finished by 1:30 am – that gives you plenty of time to close out your tab and use the restroom before you responsibly make your way home. Rest assured we’ll try to stick to the posted door and show times as much as humanly possible.

How can I purchase tickets? Is the show going to sell out?2022-01-26T10:42:12-05:00

We do not currently have an on-site box office; MEANING no in-person or over-the-phone ticket sales. Advance and Day-of tickets can be purchased online through www.charlestonpourhouse.com, click on the link to the show, then click on the big yellow “GET TICKETS” button. Advance tickets must be purchased online. Tickets will be sold at the door for shows unless the show is SOLD OUT. Follow us on social for low-ticket alerts!

I ordered my tickets online but don’t have a printer…2022-01-26T10:57:33-05:00

Please be ready to provide us with the full name of the ticket purchaser, the email address associated with the order, and the confirmation number AT THE DOOR of the event. Or just pull up your tickets on your smartphone, that’s cool too.

What is your refund or cancellation policy?2021-07-01T18:32:08-04:00

All ticket sales are final. No refunds or exchanges unless a show is cancelled. In the event of bad weather, the show will go on as long as the artist is at the venue and able to perform. We’re kind of like the postal service– “neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night.” If a show is cancelled for any reason, we will update the website and email ticket purchasers to indicate whether the show will be rescheduled or whether refunds will be issued.

What types of payment does Charleston Pour House accept?2022-01-25T14:45:34-05:00

Advance online purchases can be made with any major credit card. Ticket purchases at the door are CASH ONLY. We do have an ATM on site, but as any live music attendee knows – it’s always best to come prepared. The bars accept cash and all major credit cards.
