The Navy Yard at Noisette


There was not enough food for lunch in the house yesterday when I left so I went out to lunch at the noon hour to take a break from work. That’s right, I said work. I have a job now. I am a bona fide tax-paying citizen. No longer a lady of leisure with rooms in the house to beautify, weeds in the yard to wrestle or dogs to wrangle. I now work in North Charleston.

Anyway, back to lunch. I ventured out in my car (the car with no air-conditioning!) and went to a place called Anna Bell’s in the Navy Yards at Noisette at 10 Storehouse Row.

I got a black and blue hamburger with some homemade sweet potato and regular potato chips. Very yummy! They have salads, sandwiches and even a breakfast menu. I have plans to back as often as the budget will allow.

This restaurant is one of several business operating inside an old Navy warehouse.

From the outside . . .

You see old railroad tracks leading you inside.

An outdoor cafe atmosphere greets you when you enter.

A variety of shops hosting design firms, an art studio, a photography studio, a jewelry design boutique and other businesses are housed in this modern architectural redesign.

And of course there are two huge fans keeping the air circulating in this indoor/outdoor bazaar.

A conversation with the mail man alerted me to something interesting about them. Can you read what is written in the center?

How about now?

So if not for the food or the shops, come on out to the Navy Yards at Noisette to see their  Big Ass Fans.

  1. Ha! We have several of these fans at the Mid State Fair! When I first heard mention of them I thought people were just emphasizing how big they are. It wasn’t until I paid the bill for them that I realized that’s a registered trademark name!
