Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, certainly isn’t short on bars, restaurants, and clubs, but only a handful of these establishments truly stand out among the rest. One of the most important perks of a tropical beachside vacation is always being within seconds of a fruity cocktail, ice-cold beer, or glass of wine. Luckily for our guests here at Ocean Annie’s Resorts, you’ll always be a stone’s throw away from Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar, one of the top-rated Myrtle Beach bars. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t explore all that our coastal escape has to offer—some of the best bars in Myrtle Beach lie just down the road from our two seaside hotels!
The 4 Best Myrtle Beach Bars and Clubs
Deciding where to eat and drink during a vacation is an essential role for a trip planner. Whether you’re looking for live entertainment, nightly karaoke, ocean views, or country music, these four highly-praised Myrtle Beach bars will assuredly exceed your wildest expectations. Let’s start the list with one of the only beach bars in Myrtle Beach: Ocean Annie’s.
1. Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar
Nothing tops an afternoon on the beach with your toes in the sand, the ocean breeze in your hair, and a tall, colorful cocktail in your hand. Ocean Annie’s is so much more than a run-of-the-mill beach bar—it’s a live music hub, a poolside haven, and a lively gathering place for jovial travelers and friendly locals. You’ll also meet some of the most gregarious waiters and waitresses along the coast. And don’t overlook the fact that this famous beach bar is just steps from Sands Ocean Club and a four-minute walk from Sands Beach Club.
2. The Bowery
By now, you’ve probably heard murmurs about The Bowery, a historic country music venue in the heart of the city. The Bowery and Duffy’s Tavern remain two of most underrated Myrtle Beach Boardwalk bars as travelers typically flock to the mainstream chains that flank the promenade. The Bowery’s claim to fame is that the musical trio Alabama spent seven years in the 1970s as the venue’s house band. Well into the 21st century, The Bowery retains its southern charm while also paying tribute to those who forged their name into music’s history books. And as far as we’re concerned, The Bowery is the best country bar in Myrtle Beach.
3. Crocodile Rocks Dueling Pianos
Nobody does live, unscripted entertainment quite like “the players” at Crocodile Rocks Dueling Pianos. Frequent visitors often gush about Crocodile Rocks’ affordable cocktail, beer, and wine prices as well as the rowdy, rib-tickling atmosphere. The talent on display, both musically and comedically, is off the charts—an aspect that sets Crocodile Rocks apart from even the most glamorous Myrtle Beach bars. This dimly-lit, disheveled dive is the perfect place to unwind after a long flight into town.
4. Tin Roof
The aptly-named Tin Roof is, without a doubt, the prettiest rooftop bar in Myrtle Beach—the Atlantic Ocean views are unparalleled. There’s an air of glitz and sophistication at Tin Roof, but the open-air ambiance screams “tropical relaxation.” Patrons return time and time again for the buckets of beer, smooth mixed drinks, and, of course, those heartwarming ocean views.
