City Market in the Vista: One-stop shop for eating, dining + celebrating

Picture this: It’s a Friday night, you have guests in town (or maybe you or your partner just aren’t in the mood to cook) but you can’t decide on a place that will satisfy everyone.

Enter: City Market — three of Columbia’s oldest buildings that have been transformed into a one-stop shop to eat, drink + celebrate in the Vista. (Bonus: Plenty of covered outdoor seating for Friday evenings al fresco.)


Also home to two privately leased apartments, the complex is close to plenty of garage, surface + on-street parking. | Photo provided by City Market

The complex includes:

  • smallSUGAR: An all-day café serving scratch-made pastries, toasts, bowls + more, all made with fresh, seasonal ingredients (primarily sourced from small Carolina farms).
  • CITY Grit: A wine bar and shop featuring artisan products, wine + beer, gourmet grab-and-go snacks (think: fresh breads, pastries, and cheeses), and fine dining on site.
  • GrillMarks: A sophisticated burger joint with a full service bar and house-made milkshakes.
  • Twisted Spur Brewing: A laid-back, brick-clad brewpub serving house-brewed beer and hearty American comfort food.

City Market Place: A chic venue perfect for private parties, baby showers, intimate wedding receptions + rehearsal dinners.*
