Where to Eat, Stay and Explore in Savannah

Top chefs and young artists are reclaiming Savannah, Georgia's historic spaces.

Stay

Kimpton Brice Hotel

Kimpton Brice Hotel

Sip a Cucumber Collins by the pool, in the brick courtyard or in the lobby lined with bookshelves. It’s easy to stick around this colourful riverside property, which was once a Coca-Cola bottling plant, but be sure to hop on a loaner bike to explore the city’s 22 squares, surrounded by lush, majestic oak trees.

601 E. Bay St., 912-238-1200

Dine

The Florence

Chef Kyle Jacovino fuses Italian influences with coastal U.S. flavours at this two-storey restaurant in a converted ice factory. Dig into whole egg yolk ravioli or Georgia-raised chicken with charred citrus and farro in the industrial space that’s warmed up with rich wood floors and plush banquettes.

1 W. Victory Dr., 912-234-5522

See

Cabaret at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts

This nearly 100-year-old theatre is run by the Savannah College of Art and Design. In the summer cabaret series, musicians bare their Southern souls in one show that celebrates crooners like Ray Charles and Sam Cooke and in another that pays tribute to Savannah native Johnny Mercer.

32 Abercorn St., 912-525-5040
Until August 17

Day Trip

Daufuskie Island

Catch a water taxi to this eight-kilometre-long South Carolina island, and take a tour of the Daufuskie Island Rum Company, where everything is sourced in the U.S., from South Florida sugar to upstate New York bottles. Afterward, explore the island in a rented golf cart.

270 Haig Point Rd., Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, 843-342-4786
