North Charleston event space near the banks of the
Cooper River at Riverfront Park
Quarters K was built in 1937 as Charleston Naval Base housing for officer families. Four identical homes were built near the bank of the Cooper River. The design of the living quarters mimics that of homes built near the Panama Canal during the early 20th Century. The layout of the interior included 3 upstairs bedrooms and 2 baths, and a distinctive “T” shape living area through the center of the home with large windows completely throughout the entire house.
The City of North Charleston acquired the property in 2013 and immediately began redesigning and creating a venue space for weddings, receptions, business meetings, and retreats. Today, Quarters K features a full commercial kitchen and fully equipped bar area, and the entire space can be configured to meet specific needs of any event.
