Catch All the March Madness Games on Your Myrtle Beach Vacation

You can’t blame the referees if you make the wrong call.


We’re talking about where you watch the NCAA Tournament! You could stay home for the big games, but why? Especially when a suite at Paradise Resort in Myrtle Beach is ready for you.


And plenty of great spots to watch all the action near your resort!

1. The Barrel Sports Bar & Grill

Wealth in a sports bar comes down to TVs, cold beers, and tasty dishes. The Barrel delivers on all counts.


Why you’ll love it: It’s laid-back, and loaded with your favorite bar foods and billiards. It’s the ultimate local sports bar. The wings have a stellar reputation, the owners venture out on the floor to mingle, and you’ll make new friends.


Pro tip: When filling out your bracket, don’t pick based on a school’s seed only. Every region has Cinderella stories. Note teams with senior leadership.

2. Drafts Sports Bar & Grill

Feed your hunger for hoops (and dinner!) at this sports bar. You’re in for  superb service and food (especially the Parmesan Wings.)


Why you’ll love it: It’s a nice spot for early games too. You get a full selection of appetizers, burgers, salads, sandwiches, and seafood for lunch. Ever had a palm-stretching burger? You’ll need to come to check this one out.


PRO TIP: Want to know who might upset the big dogs? Watch mid-major tournaments. These small-school teams can play!

3. Bar Louie - Broadway at the Beach

You’ll feel at home at this bar, which serves American fare and martinis.


Why you’ll love it: The Chicken Nachos are a slam dunk. Be glad you don’t have to pick a bracket with these winners in the field. It includes Hand-Breaded Fried Pickles, Steak Sandwiches, Voodoo Pasta, and more.


PRO TIP: 1 seeds are unique for a reason. Men’s top seeds have won about 64% of NCAA Tournaments; women’s No. 1s have won it all 78% of the time.

4. 8th Ave Tiki Bar & Grill

Let this island-themed establishment host your March Madness festivities. It’s on the waterfront, with a patio, burgers, frozen cocktails, pizza, and more.


Why you’ll love it: The food and service are so excellent that you can kick back and enjoy the games. Definitely try the spring rolls. 8th Ave Tiki Bar & Grill is as awesome for a meal as for drinks, appetizers, or a plate of tacos.


PRO TIP: For the initial rounds, you could sit for 12 hours watching hoops. Hydrate, and bar hop between games.

5. Jimmagan's

If you’d like to sit for a spell in a place with delicious food and pleasant atmosphere, this is your spot.


Why you’ll love it: Expect a truly memorable sports-watching experience. This laid-back place has a quality menu and awesome beer in its lineup, and the servers are on point. This could be your favorite stop on your vacation.


PRO TIP: Expect underdogs to make the Sweet 16. It’s an enjoyable part of March Madness! Especially if you picked them in your bracket.
