Next time you and your getaway crew are ready to kick back and relax with a few cold drinks on the beach, check out one of these five great beachfront bars, all on the Grand Strand oceanfront and within an easy cab ride of North Beach Plantation:
Molly Darcy's: Found about 3.5 miles north of the resort on North Myrtle Beach’s South Ocean Boulevard, this Irish pub and grill’s outdoor oceanfront patio is the perfect place to soak up some suds, rays and ocean views. The full bar specializes in serving craft beers, cocktails and Irish whiskeys, and the extensive menu features a range of typical pub fare, as well as Irish classics such as Shepherd’s Pie, Guinness Beef Stew, Corned Beef & Cabbage, and Bangers & Mash. For a unique breakfast anytime, try the Traditional Irish Breakfast.
Bummz Beach Cafe: One of the Myrtle Beach area’s best backyards can be found about 11 miles south of North Beach Plantation in this former beach house turned beach bar. The large patio deck at Bummz offers both sun-drenched lawn chairs and covered tables, so patrons can choose to soak up some sun or relax in the shade, all while enjoying some cold suds and fresh seafood. Also offering a lengthy list of tasty burgers and sandwiches, Bummz brings in the crowds looking to enjoy live music on the outdoor stage.
Riptydz Oceanfront Grille and Rooftop Bar: Located about 11.5 miles south of North Beach Plantation, this somewhat new Myrtle Beach hot spot is part beach bar, part oceanfront restaurant. The rooftop bar here offers sweeping Atlantic Ocean views plus live music nightly, all kicked into high gear by a menu featuring seafood and prime steaks. This place also sits right on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, so it’s a great place to start or finish a stroll along the iconic 1.2-mile walkway.
Oceanfront Bar & Grill: Another beach bar located right on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, this bar and grill found 12 miles south of North Beach Plantation boasts a deck that’s right on the edge of the famous wooden walkway — offering the perfect place for people-watching while relaxing with food and drinks. Seafood and sandwiches are the highlights on the menu here, while the bar offers a wide range of beer and cocktail choices.
Pier View Open Air Bar: While this bar isn't technically located “on the beach,” it's over it — and to be even more specific, actually over the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Found on the Second Avenue Pier about 12.5 miles south of North Beach Plantation, this open-air bar serves up a full bar menu along with a limited appetizer menu, all rounded out by great views of the beach and ocean. The relaxing atmosphere is further enhanced with padded furniture and an indoor breezeway.
