FAQ

 

What is The Wonderer Charleston?

The Wonderer is a private member’s club that provides an oasis and a healthy way to connect with like-minded individuals in the growing highly ranked city of Charleston, South Carolina. The Wonderer seeks to redefine what it means to lead a happy, healthy and, fulfilled life by offering social, work, and wellness amenities all under one roof. The space is dedicated for member’s private use with a social-driven pool facility, health and wellness programming, multiple bars and delicious local cuisine. In addition to the private club amenities, The Wonderer will also include an event space called “The Garden,” which will be available to Club members and for public leased events.  

 

Where is The Wonderer located?  

The Wonderer is a first-of-its-kind, positioned in the growing upper-peninsula district of downtown Charleston, S.C. We provide a respite to members from the tourist-heavy streets, where they can find a space to relax, work, and connect. Our exclusive 50,000 square foot facility will carry a strong emphasis on sustainability, with certain carbon-neutral initiatives like solar paneling and rainwater recycling for drip irrigation throughout the grounds. 

 

Where does the name ‘The Wonderer’ come from?

A Wonderer is an independent thinker, one who aspires for the highest quality of life by seeking out new opportunities and experiences. It’s someone who maintains a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle and never conforms to societal trends to simply “fit in”. 

 

What amenities does The Wonderer Club provide?

The Wonderer focuses on the diverse needs of its members, its a modern-day oasis that includes all the things we as adults try to cram into our busy schedules but can hardly find time for. We’re here to make life a bit easier for you, consolidating all of your social, work, and wellness needs into one place. At the center of The Wonderer’s 50,000 square foot facility will feature a Junior Olympic-size swimming pool with private poolside cabanas, daybeds, lounge chairs and adjacent sitting areas. Also featured is a full-service restaurant, HUSTLE Smoothie Bar and wellness café, a co-working lounge with leasable conference rooms, and a micro gym with spa treatment services. Did we mention the rooftop sports bar that's also planned for the near future? See the Private Club section of the website for a complete list of amenities.  

 

Can I host events at The Wonderer as a non-member?

Yes. “The Garden” is The Wonderer’s designated event venue, available for both public and private gatherings. It delivers on a wide array of event needs, from food and beverage catering service to production and decor rentals, and is the perfect place to host your next special occasion. (Members receive priority and discounted rates). For all inquiries please email events@thewonderer.com.

 

Is the pool heated?

Yes. The pool is heated from October – April.

You mention charitable giving as one of your core values. What charities do you support?

POLICY SECTION
 

Dress Code Policy

Members and guests are required to wear shirts and shoes while enjoying food or drinks in any of our eateries or the rooftop bar. We also ask that members refrain from wearing clothing with inappropriate language or graphics.  

 

Cell phone Policy

Electronic devices are encouraged in designated “cell-friendly” zones throughout the facility. Please be courteous of your fellow members by not listening to distracting music or having loud telephone conversations while in shared areas. This policy applies to guests of Members as well.

 

Smoking Policy

Smoking or vaping is not permitted anywhere on Club property.

 

Children Policy

It’s not that we’re anti-children, we are just pro-adult/parent. While we do plan to offer some family-friendly events, we are an adults-only, 21 and older club that was created to be a respite from the pressures of ‘adulting.’ We recognize that parents need some time away from the kids, so we’ve consciously created a space where you can unplug from the daily grind and do whatever helps you recharge, whether it be focused on wellness, having a cocktail at the bar or getting some work accomplished, without interruption. 

 

Animal Policy

Dogs or other pets, (with exception of those assisting persons with disabilities), are not permitted on the pool deck or restaurant or gym. Pet owners are responsible for the behavior of their pets at all times. During pet related events, pets may use the “restroom” in the grass surrounding the parking lot areas and pet owners are responsible for picking up and properly disposing of pet waste.

 

Resignation Policy

Any member who wishes to resign must first complete one year of membership and give a 60-day written notice. Prior to resigning, all balances must be paid in full. 

 

Disciplinary Policy

Members, their families and all guests shall abide by the Rules & Regulations of the Club, while they may be amended from time to time as deemed necessary.
