5 Top Spots for Live Music on the Grand Strand

5 Top Spots for Live Music on the Grand Strand

When the mood strikes, there’s nothing quite like catching some live music and dancing the night (or day) away. And on the Grand Strand, the opportunities to do just that are plentiful. Whether you prefer and indoor venue with a great atmosphere and amazing acoustics or an outdoor venue with the sun on your shoulders and the waves crashing nearby, the Myrtle Beach area can accommodate.

Consider these top 5 locations for catching a live musical performance on the Grand Strand:

House of Blues — The premier live-music venue at North Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/ entertainment hot spot Barefoot Landing, this Mississippi Delta juke-joint inspired music hall hosts a regular schedule of national touring acts. The 59,000-square-foot venue sets the mood with a unique collection of contemporary folk art decorating its spaces, and when all that rocking gets you and your your crew hungry, Southern staples such as Shrimp & Grits, Jambalaya and Baby Back Ribs can be found on the dining menu. The HoB’s summer 2018 concert lineup includes Collective Soul, Biz Markie, Yacht Rock Revue, Jimmy Eat World, Drive-By Truckers and more. Local acts are also regularly featured on the venue’s outdoor deck. For more info, visit houseofblues.com.

Bourbon Street — Located next to Pine Lakes Country Club in Myrtle Beach, this North Kings Highway bar & grill/music venue is a favorite among music-loving locals. Offering a smoke-free atmosphere and serving a menu of sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas and appetizers until late in the evening, acts on Bourbon Street’s summer lineup include The Travelin’ Kine, the Brad Long Band and Little Bird.

The Boathouse — Boasting “the Best Backyard in Town,” this bar & grill located on the Intracoastal Waterway just off Highway 501 in Myrtle Beach is known for its free Sunday Concert Series regularly featuring “up and coming” country artists from across the region and nation, as well as rock acts, tribute bands and more. The Boathouse also offers an extensive menu highlighted by sandwiches, seafood, surf & turf items, and burgers. The venue’s summer lineup includes Riley Green, Hudson Moore, Abbey Road and Badfish — all playing in late June alone. For more information, visit boathousemb.com.

The Bowery — A downtown Myrtle Beach icon, this oceanfront bar & restaurant is celebrating 75 years of bringing good times and great music to the Grand Strand. Known as the launching pad for legendary country band Alabama back in the early 1970s, The Bowery today keeps its country music tradition alive by hosting house band The Bounty Hunters six nights a week from March through October, with special guest bands playing on many Sunday nights. When hunger strikes, the kitchen can serve up an extensive menu of burgers, wings, appetizers and other bar food. To learn more, visit thebowery.com.

Murrell's Inlet MarshWalk — Found on the Grand Strand’s southern end, the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk features an array of bars and restaurants, all connected by a half-mile wooden boardwalk overlooking a scenic salt marsh. Favorite spots for catching some live tunes here include Drunken Jack’s, Wahoo’s, Wicked Tuna’s Tuna Shak and Dead Dog Saloon — but the list goes on from there.
