  • O'Hara & Flynn
    The team at O'Hara & Flynn are master librarians. They've filled the shelves of their storefront with hundreds of hand-selected works from across the world, from Paris to Rome to Berlin. But the tales here aren't told through rising actions and denouements. They're expressed through the notes of a carefully curated wine selection, which encompasses some 30 options by the glass and 700 by the bottle.  The curators focus on artisanal producers such as Giuseppe Quintarelli. For an insight into their selection process, simply head to the the dark wood tasting bar at the center of the shop. Here, patrons can sample wines alongside Mediterranean foods—maybe the locally-made ravioli of the week, a shareable plate of smoked duck breast charcuterie, or a hoardable plate of five-year aged gouda.

  • Eco Fitness and Blue Turtle Yoga
    Eco Fitness and Blue Turtle Yoga?s fleet of trainers and instructors believe that the best way to lead people to a sustainable, healthy lifestyle, is to point them toward as many routes as possible. To that end, they keep an impressive schedule of classes that includes yoga, cycling, barre, group fitness, and personal training. To give parents peace of mind during workouts, and to let youngsters blow off steam, Eco Fitness invites kids to romp through the 4,400 square-foot kids towne. There, children ages 8?12 shake off calories, excess energy, and clingy imaginary friends in bounce castles, play tag, and work on arts and crafts.

  • Threshold Repertory Theatre
    "Threshold creates huge musicals in a little theater," read the headline of a recent Charleston City Paper profile of Threshold Repertory Theatre. Audiences will recognize many of the works the company performs from Broadway and beyond, but in its 100-seat black-box theater, even the splashiest showpieces take on new intimacy. “What happens in this space is that the audience seriously begins to blend with the story," previous artistic director Pamela Nichols Galle told the City Paper. Threshold gives patrons direct access to the brains and talents of directors, playwrights, and actors. Before or after a show, guests can get into the theatrical spirit by enjoying beer, wine and snacks from the box office's concession stand.

  • M Body Fitness
    Inspired by a passion for dance that began with classical ballet lessons at the age of two, Meredith Williams took up Pilates in 2001. The graceful, core-focused discipline reminded her of the best parts of dance, and her growing enthusiasm led her to pursue her Stott Pilates certification within just a few years. Known as “Miss Motivation” to her friends, she lived up to her nickname and didn’t stop there—her success with Pilates finally led her to develop her own core-focused, quick-paced workout program, and so M Body Fitness was born. Today, Meredith’s classes target and strengthen core muscles with innovative whole-body vibrational floors and bodyweight suspension training. After equipping her students with bosu balls that create unstable surfaces ideal for toning stomach muscles, she leads them through quick cardio bursts that liquidate fat faster than a soap company’s closing sale.

  • The Charleston Angler
    The water starts to darken along a stretch of marsh grasses, just before its surface is slashed apart by the fins of hungry redfish. The redfish trap schools of mullet into a tight corral—and then go into a feeding frenzy. South Carolina fishermen love this scenario. The owners of The Charleston Angler love it, too, which is why they founded their shop back in 2000. The shop's crew of seasoned anglers supply fly, inshore, and offshore fishermen with tackle specific to South Carolina's waters, from the coastal flats that draw trophy tarpon to the inland lakes filled with blue catfish. Along with advising customers on gear from brands such as Shimano, Penn, and St. Croix, the shop hosts classes and seminars. These sessions can cover topics as broad as Orvis fly-fishing, or as specific as catching bass in the cypress-strewn swamps of Francis Marion National Forest. Beyond tackle and apparel—some of which comes from their own "Redfish" line of t-shirts, trucker hats, ball caps, visors, and jackets—The Charleston Angler offers fly-fishing and light-tackle charters and runs an in-house embroidery boutique. The staff also posts tips, insights, fish haikus, and fishing reports on its Reel Blog and encourages customers to share their fish stories.
