Contraband is a project showcasing the best of Charleston, WV’s music, art, restaurants, businesses, and events. Created by Savannah Pratt, this is a collaborative project sustained by the interests of people living in Charleston and the surrounding areas. All articles submitted are on a voluntary basis and reflect the unbiased opinion of locals and visitors. If you would like to be part of this awesome collaborative, please feel free to contact us!

Below, we have listed a few of the bars, restaurants, music venues, and shops in Charleston. (If you know of another location in Charleston that deserves recognition, please reach out! We want to be inclusive as possible and list as many notable businesses as possible.)
