Bars to Visit in Myrtle Beach
As the weather warms up people may be starting to give some real thought to a spring get-away or their summer vacation. Millions of people visit Myrtle Beach and a vacation is a fantastic time to explore some of the best bars in the Grand Strand area that you might not otherwise know about.
Liberty Steakhouse and Brewery - This is part of a small chain of bars/restaurants in North Carolina and South Carolina that, in addition to brewing their own beers, also serves up great food. In Myrtle Beach, this bar is located at Broadway at the Beach and is a great place to visit for happy hour, especially during warmer weather months when they have bands performing outside under a canopy.
Dead Dog Saloon - This is a great bar located on the south end of Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet. They have amazing food as well as a fantastic view of the marsh. The bar suffered a fire in the spring of 2012 but has come back better than ever with an updated interior and a hugely expanded back deck and bar. The drinks and food here can be a bit pricey but it's honestly worth it to be able to enjoy the atmosphere. Plus, a benefit of heading down to Murrells Inlet is that there is a walkway along the marsh that allows you to travel from bar to bar easily AND you can carry your drink along the way.
Bumsteads - While most of these other bars take advantage of the beautiful views and weather Myrtle Beach has, Bumsteads is more your typical dive bar. Not much sunlight to be found there. But they have a fantastic beer selection, a menu that features giant, fresh sandwiches and bartenders that know their beers. They also have a happy hour menu that features some $3-$5 appetizers that are sure to satisfy your drinking munchies.
Mixx at Hotel Blue- Mixx is unique in Myrtle Beach because of the party atmosphere and the in-pool bar. It is the best place to go if you're trying to decide between spending a day in the pool and the bar. Here you can do both! They specialize in frozen, refreshing drinks but can make just about anything. And if you want to embrace the area idea of Sunday-Funday then make sure to check out Mixx on a Sunday afternoon for the Therapy Pool Party, with a DJ, contests and more.
Those are some of my favorite Myrtle Beach Bars to visit. I hope you check them out!
