Looking for a place to grab a cold beer or frozen margarita after a day of fun in the sun? A laid-back beach vacation on the Grand Strand should include a stop at one of these beachfront bars.

Ocean Annie’s

A favorite of both locals and visitors, Ocean Annie’s is known as the biggest beach party on the Grand Strand, and was voted the #1 Beach Bar in Myrtle Beach. This oceanfront establishment tends to draw the crowds for their public pool deck, live music and dancing, and refreshing drinks. No shirt, no shoes, no problem!

LandShark Bar & Grill

Located next to the SkyWheel in the heart of Myrtle Beach, the LandShark Bar & Grill is the brainchild of legendary Jimmy Buffet. The menu is filled with tasty bites and beverages, including Margaritas and LandShark Lager. This casual joint features a large, open-air deck that overlooks the beach, as well as a surf-themed indoor dining area.

Molly Darcy’s

This North Myrtle Beach Irish Pub serves great food, a wide selection of beers, and features a game room and live entertainment. The large, beachfront patio is right off the sand, making this a great place to grab a drink and some grub after a day at the beach.


This oceanfront tiki bar in North Myrtle Beach is a favorite summertime hangout. Open seasonally, you can walk right up from the beach in your flip-flops and swim trunks to enjoy an adult beverage and a bite to eat.

Bummz On The Beach

This Myrtle Beach hangout has a great location and view. Casual as can be, the building is a converted 1930s beach house with a pine interior, wooden tables and chairs, and pane-glass windows overlooking the ocean. But the best spot is the open-air deck out back, with a tiki bar serving cold beer and frozen drinks, and a stage for bands.

Oceanfront Bar & Grill

This relaxed boardwalk restaurant has an airy atmosphere and a vast menu of beach fare. The door-less dining room is no-frills, with wooden floors and tables, plus there’s plenty of seating available outside on the outdoor patio, where you can soak up the sun and sea breezes.

Second Avenue Pier

At the southernmost point of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, the Second Avenue Pier allows visitors to venture farther out into the Atlantic Ocean than anywhere else on the Grand Strand — 900 feet to be exact! After taking a stroll and enjoying the view, visit the open-air bar to sit back and relax while sipping on your drink of choice.

8th Avenue Tiki Bar & Grill

This Myrtle Beach Boardwalk tiki bar has more than 50 beers, creative cocktails, and a kitschy atmosphere. Sit inside with a panoramic ocean view, or people watch on the waterfront deck while enjoying a delicious, freshly prepared meal.

Hurricanes Daiquiri Bar & Grill

Located on the Boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach, next to the famous Gay Dolphin, this oceanfront hotspot offers a variety of daiquiris and alcoholic slushies, plus food, live music and entertainment.

Riptydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar

The new kid on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, this mega bar has one of the best views of the beach. With over 17,000-square-feet and 500 seats, the restaurant and bar features a full menu of food, beer, wine and mixed drinks.
