Are You Not Entertained?

15 South Ristorante

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING THURSDAY MAY 17, 2018

Sidestep from the bustling sidewalks of St. Armands Circle into this bi-level Italian eatery providing dinner and a show every night of the week. Inside 15 South’s Mediterranean-inspired walls, revel in the nightly offerings of entertaining experiences, because this place is so much more than just a restaurant. Sway your way from the ground floor to the top floor, as each level designates itself to its own musical features and ambiance.

In the charming dining room, which also consists of an elegant piano/wine bar with high top tables close to the action, discover an eclectic array of live entertainment playing worldly music with soulful instrumental vibrations. Sounds range from Blues/Motown to Jazz to Latin and Classic Italian/American music—a master at the trumpet plays on Sundays and Monday, a piano savant on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, a romancer on the Spanish guitar on Thursdays, and a popular Latin band on the weekends to get you on your feet for salsa and merengue. Many of the artists play without sheet music, so have your requests ready and be blown away by some seriously underrated talent.

After a delicious dinner, continue your evening by heading upstairs to the nightclub for cocktails at the horseshoe-shaped liquor bar in the back, while moving to the upbeat music of a DJ playing into the wee hours of the night. Enjoy a drink on the large, open balcony overlooking the Circle, then shimmy over to the stage-front to tear up the granite dance floor amongst great company.
