- Vendue InnFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
The venerable Vendue is one of our historic inns that has been here for decades. Revered by many, the building has existed since 1790, when Samuel Prioleau built it near the harbor and what is now our glorious Waterfront Park. His portrait hangs in The Library, his wife’s across from it. Actually a restaurant, these rooms are looking Old World elegant, with chandeliers a glow. (Also, Chef Jude Wagner’s cuisine is laudable, and has many Continental and Carolina classics, often contemporized.)
The same interior designer who is redecorating all of the guestrooms, Jerryann Amos, splendorized the restaurant.Her concept for the new rooms is that each will be named after a famous South Carolinian. In every room there will be information and graphics on that personage. Example. In the John Rutledge room, it will tell how in 1775 he was running against George Washington for the first presidency. It will direct you to his former home and to St. Michael’s Cemetery where he is buried, and so on.
