About Myrtle Beach, SC Nightlife
The downtown district has undergone a serious transformation in recent years, becoming a center for nightlife thanks to the construction of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. The 1.2-mile oceanfront walkway weaves through arcades and open-air cafes and bars to create a festive atmosphere that had disappeared with the closing of the old Pavilion. The colorful 190-foot SkyWheel and numerous new clubs, like Jimmy Buffett's LandShark Bar and Grill, are hubs of activity, and Plyler Park plaza features an outdoor stage where free concerts and fireworks shows are held throughout the summer. Myrtle Beach's entertainment complexes continue to serve as centers for night activity. Broadway at the Beach boasts Celebrity Square, a district of a dozen or so bars that allow visitors to pub crawl their way around the square, Barefoot Resort has the House of Blues and Alabama Theater for great live music and Market Common has an urban neighborhood feel with great pubs and dance clubs. For those partial to the good old days, Ocean Drive in North Myrtle Beach has historic beachside dance clubs, like Fat Harold's and Duck's, where '60s music and the shag are still in style. When you return safely back to your hotel, don't be surprised if the outdoor pool bar is still open for a nightcap.
