With a prime oceanfront location in Myrtle Beach, Paradise Resort is designed to help you get the most out of your vacation. Every room features an ocean view, indoor and outdoor pools provide a cooling splash of fun, and on-site restaurants Sandal’s and the Tiki Hut supply food and drinks to patrons who want to make the most of their time in the sun. For those who want to get out and enjoy some Myrtle Beach nightlife after the sun goes down, what is more fun than letting loose for a night of dancing? Here are our picks for the top five places to go dancing in Myrtle Beach.
The Bowery – Deemed by many “the Eighth Wonder of the World,” this 1940s-era honkey-tonk is a country music icon. While its beachfront location and Southern hospitality give The Bowery much of its charm, the venue is best known for helping give Grammy Award-winning group Alabama its start. The great taste in musicians has carried on – the current house band, The Bounty Hunters, is among the best that Myrtle Beach has to offer. The Bowery is open 7 days a week from March through October, with live entertainment at 8:30 p.m. most nights. The people, music and food give this old honky-tonk an atmosphere that epitomizes it’s “Ya Can’t Beat Fun” slogan.
2001 Nightclub – Located on Lake Arrowhead Rd. near Restaurant Row, 2001 Nightclub has been a premier nightlife destination on the Grand Strand for more than three decades. Two separate clubs under one roof offer two different experiences. Club Next Level brings live local bands and DJs, offering soul, Motown, funk, beach music and more to keep patrons moving well into the night. Club Touch is a high-energy joint where DJs play hip-hop, techno, Top 40 and retro classics to keep the party going. Six video walls feature the best moves on the dance floor, music videos and ambient footage. Can’t decide which club is your speed? Visitors can bounce between Club Next Level and Club Touch until they find the perfect song to dance to.
House of Blues – The House of Blues was founded to regularly bring the sweet sounds of rhythm and blues, gospel, jazz and roots-based rock & roll to the Grand Strand. It delivers. Some of the area’s biggest concerts happen here, with top-notch touring acts featured year-round. If you’re not enjoying a show in the music hall, you can still dance the night away to live music on The Deck or in The Crossroads Restaurant. Music is the backbone of the House of Blues, so you’re sure to tap your toes late into the evening.
Malibu’s Surf Bar – If you’re looking for a high-energy party, this Broadway at the Beach hot spot is the place for you. Dueling DJs keep the crowd at Malibu’s dancing until the wee hours with 80s, 90s and today’s hits. The music, combined with a laid-back atmosphere, elaborate lighting and a Tiki Bar make this indoor beach party a hit. Add surfboards, sand buckets and sharks, and you have the perfect formula for an unforgettable night! Malibu’s Tiki Bar also kicks off a Pub Crawl each Tuesday night, where patrons crawl through Broadway at the Beach and end up back inside Malibu’s Surf Bar.
Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar – For more than 30 years, Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar has attracted large crowds from nearby resorts and locals alike for the largest beach party on the Grand Strand. The oceanfront setting draws visitors in, and the drinks and music keep them there. Located behind Sands Ocean Club, Ocean Annie’s is perfect for people who want to dance by the ocean, then cool off in the pool. The pool deck includes a stage for live music, so guests can dance on the deck or inside the enormous swimming pool. If your feet get tired, don’t worry! You can enjoy the music from your beach chair thanks to servers who are eager to bring you the perfect frozen drink to make the night one to remember.
Whether you prefer a high-energy beach party or an old-fashioned honky-tonk, Myrtle Beach has the perfect place to let loose just a stone’s throw from your comfortable oceanfront accommodations at Paradise Resort.
