Lobster rolls and Chili dogs, oysters Rockefeller and beanie weenies: the high-low offerings at James Island hot spot Bar George
Alex Lira opened his oysters, hot dogs, and cocktails hot spot on Maybank Highway last spring.
Porch Strings: “I like picking my banjo on the porch with my buddies and Bernie Sanders (that’s my pit bull).”
Cluck, Cluck, Cluck: “I have three chickens that I call One, Two, and Three. We get eggs from Storey Farms, so Jeremy Storey is my chicken hookup.”
Urbane Outfitters: “I’ve got some fashion-forward buddies in New York who send me hand-me-downs and keep me clothed. Thanks, Jason and Paul.”
Soak It In: “I have four claw-foot bath tubs, including one in my backyard that I rigged with copper coils attached to my fire pit to make a hot tub.”
Outboard Bound: “I have a perfect little bum-around boat that I can surf behind. Or I’ll act like I’m going fishing and then end up drinking beer instead.”
As co-owner of the laid-back eatery Bar George and executive chef at tapas spot Estadio, the roguish Alex Lira delivers serious food with good humor and antic shenanigans
