We define a great bar by its selection of drinks, tasty pub grub and location. And when the temperatures are hot, there’s no better place to be than a beachfront bar sipping on a cold cocktail.
Myrtle Beach has some of the hottest beachfront bars along the Atlantic Coast, and when you’re at one of these bars, like Kenny Chesney sings, “no shoes, no shirt, no problem.” So the next time you visit Myrtle Beach, make sure you visit its 5 best beachfront bars.
Oceanfront Bar & Grill
Oceanfront Bar & Grill has been a Myrtle Beach tradition and favorite for more than 60 years. Located on the boardwalk and with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean, this iconic spot serves great food and ice cold brews. It has also some of the best live music around, with live acoustic music shows every day during the summer. Enjoy the atmosphere, the views and the nice ocean breeze you feel while relaxing on the patio.
8th Avenue Tiki Bar & Grill
8th Avenue Tiki Bar & Grill prides itself in bringing you “Good vibes. Good food. Good music. Good times.” And it does so with its beach-like decorations, complete with tiki statues and a bamboo bar, live music blaring throughout the summer months and a full menu. You can choose from flavorsome appetizers, sandwiches, seafood, steaks and pizzas, but the menu items that are a total crowd pleaser are the 2-foot skewers. Eat on the patio during the day, and bring your night to life inside the bar with 8th Avenue’s drink specials and entertaining crowds.
McAdoo’s Beach Bar
You’ll find McAdoo’s Beach Bar nestled right on the beach waiting to be the beachfront bar that wows you with its location, fantastic cocktails and large covered live music stage. The latter is what really draws people in as it’s the only beachfront bar with an outdoor stage music venue. McAdoo’s is open daily from 11 a.m. – 2 a.m., leaving plenty of time for you to stop by and take in all this hot nightlife spot has to offer its visitors.
Sharkey’s Beach Bar
At Sharkey’s you’ll quickly learn the fun never stops, and there’s always fun to be had. Sit on the deck — which has an amazing oceanfront view — and enjoy a delicious seafood meal made from fresh ingredients and prepared by the one and only Chef Lenny Edwards. If you’re staying in Myrtle Beach during a summer weekend, drop by and show off your singing skills during a karaoke night or listen and dance along to one of the bands or DJs playing that night.
Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar
If you’re looking for a little more livelier action, then check out Ocean Annie’s, a beach tavern loved by locals and tourists alike. With live music on the pool deck and easy access to the beach, it’s easy to dance the day away and then jump in the pool (or ocean!) to cool off.
Whether you want to eat with a beautiful oceanfront view, relax with a cold drink in hand feeling the ocean breeze or dance and mingle with locals and other tourists to live music, Myrtle Beach has the best beachfront bars offering all of the above.
