Porch & Swing is an homage to the Lowcountry. A tribute to the cuisine of Charleston, South Carolina; coastal southern fare with a true farm-to-table approach. Our philosophy is a simple one: stellar food and drinks prepared with the highest quality ingredients. The menus change seasonally to showcase the freshest, local produce while the environment is relaxed, modern and always inviting.
Leading the bar program is Charleston native, Andrew Parish. A master mixologist of 15 years, Andrew has made a name for himself in the Southern California cocktail scene. He spent a decade honing his skills in Los Angeles, running bar programs that received glowing write ups from multiple publications. His carefully crafted cocktails won over the tastebuds of comedian, Chelsea Handler which kicked off a career as her personal events mixologist. This garnered the attention of multiple other celebrities and landed him an interview with the Huffington Post in which he was dubbed “Mixologist To The Stars”. After many years spent in LA, Andrew took an opportunity to design a bar program down in Orange County allowing him to transform the local cocktail scene. Now ready to tackle a new challenge, he has created a concept of his own. He may be a California transplant but he has never lost site of his Charleston roots. This endeavor to bring the Lowcountry to Southern California is one Andrew is incredibly passionate about and cannot wait to share with true southern hospitality.
