Vault & Vator

Inviting, intimate and a little hard to find are just a few ways to describe this moody subterranean bar in Greenville. You can enter Vault & Vator by heading down the steep hill to the back of the Edward Jones Building off of Main Street. Read up on the house rules before you go — they discourage cell phone use, standing, sweats and flip-flops. You also won’t be able to order shots here, as this classy speakeasy specializes in handcrafted libations like their Left on Red, made with gin, raspberry, mint, lime, simple syrup and bubbles.
