Steve Palmer

Managing Partner

Steve Palmer, managing partner of The Indigo Road, formed the Charleston-based hospitality group in 2009. In addition to managing the acclaimed Oak Steakhouse on historic Broad Street, Palmer brought Japanese cuisine to the Lowcountry when he helped open O-Ku on upper King Street in early 2010.O-Ku, the first upscale Japanese restaurant on the peninsula, was named one of Esquire magazine’s 20 Best New Restaurants of 2010.

Building on his passion for the upper King Street area of Charleston, Palmer opened The Cocktail Club in June, 2011. The Cocktail Club is a throwback to speakeasies of the 1920s and features craft cocktails made with fresh ingredients grown on site.
