About Hilton Head, SC Nightlife

Hilton Head nightlife focuses on places that offer tasteful ambience and good drinks. Of course, venues range from casual waterside bars like the legendary Salty Dog Café to sexy wine bars, but everywhere you go, you'll find common priorities of refinement, care and hospitality. Specialty martinis, imaginative wine lists and cosmopolitan décor highlight some of the island's most popular hangouts. At the south end of the island, Park Plaza, a shopping center known as the "Bar-muda Triangle," houses several popular nightspots, like Two Eleven Park Bistro and Wine Bar and Stage, Music & More, a hip music club. For other opportunities to hear some live jams, Harbourtown features frequent outdoor shows that are often family-oriented and The Jazz Corner at the Village at Wexford hosts stellar nightly concerts.
