REV does their take on the dive bar with The Royal American (Update: REV out)

Update February 14: REV shot out an email today stating that The Royal American is leaving the REV nest.

Here's more on the switch:

A controlling interest in the Royal American has been sold to the existing operating partners and as such REV will no longer be associated with the management of The Royal American.

The only change you may notice as a guest is that you can no longer use your Revolutionary Rewards loyalty card at The Royal American.

We have enjoyed our partnership with the best live music bar in Charleston, and wish the venture continued success.

Update: If you hadn't noted, The Royal American opened December 28 after a short delay and Charlie Mag is offering up a short feature and slideshow.

First reporting: REV Foods, the owner of Taco Boy, Poe's Tavern, Monza and Closed for Business is officially opening their take on the drive bar today, and its name is The Royal American.

With the around-the-clock promise of $2 canned beer, $2.50 drafts and $3 well drinks, it sounds like The Royal American may be some stiff competition for neighbors Tattooed Moose, Taco Boy and Santi's. 

The Charleston City Paper has a first look inside of the spot, which is located at 970 Morrison Drive. The Royal American officially opens today, and the hours of operation will be from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
