Turns out we’re not the only ones who love Poe’s Tavern on Sullivan’s Island! In light of Edgar Allen Poeâ€™s 200th birthday, the Boston Globe featured an article all about the history of Edgar Allen Poe, specifically, his ties to the Lowcountry. Born in Boston in 1809, Poe lived at Fort Moultrie on Sullivanâ€™s Island for about a year. A shrine to the writer, Poeâ€™s Tavern encompasses all that is â€œPoeâ€.
From the menu items, to the dÃ©cor and waitstaff t-shirts, the restaurant radiates the writerâ€™s presence. The article also mentions â€œPoe-themedâ€ street signs, and the islandâ€™s local libraryâ€™s fascination with Poe. Makes me hungry and ready for summertime!
