A social club with a full-service restaurant and pool that bills itself as "more loose-tie than black-tie" has been acquired by a hospitality company.
The Mixson Club, located near Park Circle in North Charleston, is under new ownership.
Success Street Hospitality, a local firm based and operated in Charleston and owned by local resident Boris Van Dyck, has acquired the club property, adjoining restaurant, and market, a Success Streets Hospitality news release stated. Van Dyck, who was one of the club's founding 50 members, recently sent a letter to the current members announcing this transition and the many improvements that are to come.
Success Street Hospitality has plans for a renovation and refresh of the club, fitness center, pool area, cabanas, full-service restaurant and the market/café, the release stated. Members will be kept apprised to the forthcoming plans, which will be put into place in stages throughout 2023.
The gym and pool will remain open with normal operational hours. In the interim, upgrades to the facility have already begun, according to the release.
“We want to bring life back to the club as it had when it first opened and I have always loved the space,” Van Dyck, owner of Success Street Hospitality, said in the release. “There will be significant changes to the club that should please new and existing members. We have exciting plans for the restaurant and market and can’t wait to share those when the time is right.”
Van Dyck has spent most of his life in the hospitality industry as his family had restaurants in Belgium, the Caribbean and New York, the release stated. He moved to Charleston in 1994 to attend the College of Charleston and worked in the hospitality industry locally for over 20 years. He is the founder and former owner of ICEBOX, a creative cocktail catering company, and EventHaus, a company specializing in custom, bespoke event rentals, according to the release.
