With the holiday season in full swing, thousands of travelers are starting to eagerly turn their attention to the discounted winter season here in Myrtle Beach. Average highs typically sit in the upper 50s and low 60s from December through March, which still constitutes as “beach season” for many. And, for those who plan to visit our beachside paradise during winter’s peak, we highly recommend a night or two of electrifying live music in Myrtle Beach. Yes, Ocean Annie’s Resorts is home to one of the best bars in Myrtle Beach, but that doesn’t mean a brief jaunt to a local jazz club or country music tavern shouldn’t be on the docket.
Live Music in Myrtle Beach: 5 Unique Venues
Couples, groups, and families with older children are always searching for live music in Myrtle Beach because the Grand Strand is, after all, the birthplace of “beach music.” We’ve identified five unique venues that range from live theater to popular concert halls. Hopefully, after reading through this list, you won’t have to search for “live music near me tonight.”
Best Beach Bar: Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar
Ocean Annie’s is our seasonal, on-site beachfront bar that attracts hundreds of thousands of beachgoers every summer. Nothing tops warm sand, jaw-dropping Atlantic Ocean views, fruity cocktails, and classic, beachy tunes!
Best Country Music Venue: The Bowery
The Bowery is, of course, known for its ties to the band, Alabama. And this historic country music venue continues its tradition of live performances from a house band. The Bounty Hunters, much like Alabama several decades before them, draw hundreds of spectators every weekend.
Best DJs: Tin Roof
Midwinter Myrtle Beach nightlife doesn’t get much better than the Tin Roof’s array of talented DJs, touring musicians, and trivia nights. If you were to search for “live music near me this weekend” here at Ocean Annie’s Resorts, you’d likely stumble upon Tin Roof’s calendar of events. And don’t worry—the stage is inside where it’s always 72 degrees.
Best Jazz Club: P. Reynolds Jazz Supper Club
Reynolds isn’t open during the winter months, but that only adds anticipation for those in need of a live jazz fix. This dimly-lit club is open four nights a week with fresh material every evening ranging from classic arrangements to contemporary hits. And The Bowery is only a nine-minute walk from P. Reynolds. These two historic venues host some of the most memorable Myrtle Beach concerts during the summer months.
Best Theater: The Carolina Opry Theater
There are several types of live music in Myrtle Beach, including rousing tribute bands to crowd-pleasing DJs. But the most popular spots for live entertainment are typically theaters, such as The Carolina Opry Theater on Kings Highway. The Opry is less than three miles from Sands Ocean Club and Sands Beach Club, which is why it’s one of our many money-saving vacation add-ons.
