The speculation is over about who will get to use the pool on the seventh floor of Falls Park Place at 600 S. Main St., the home of Lululemon, Jianna, and Duke Brands. The short answer: members of the new Topside Pool Club.
The members-only club, which includes a pool and swim-up bar overlooking Main Street and Falls Park, is operated by High Spirits Hospitality.
Tammy Johnson, CEO of High Spirits Hospitality, which includes Liquid Catering, The Old Cigar Warehouse, Bravo1 Protection, and High Spirits Events, said Topside Pool Club was the right opportunity at the right time for her company.
“We have been examining ways to branch out and had been looking for more social spots for quite some time,” she said. “Topside Pool Club will be a distinct location that offers spectacular views of Falls Park that are unmatched anywhere else.”
Members will have access to full bar service and private members-only events, such as yoga and wine tastings. Johnson says while they don’t have DHEC permits to prepare food on site, the bar will likely carry prepared foods from Jianna, Happy + Hale, and Duke Brands.
Guests and underage children will be permitted only with a member. The club will also be available to host private select corporate events for happy hours.
Planned hours of operation from April to October are Thursday, 4–10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 4 p.m.–midnight; and Sunday, 11 a.m.–midnight.
Johnson says the club may open on certain unseasonably warm days during the offseason.
Topside Pool Club is currently looking for a beverage program director and other staff members. It will open Memorial Day weekend. Memberships are available beginning May 1.
