Guide to Live Music in Myrtle Beach

The Bowery

The historic spot where legendary country music group Alabama debuted is still rockin’. It’s a great beachfront bar where you can hear awesome country music. If that’s your jam, this is all the nightlife you need.

Crocodile Rocks

If you’ve never experienced dueling pianos, you owe it to yourself to get here. The crew here knows almost every song imaginable. Grab some Jalapeno Poppers with Ranch and a cold drink to enjoy the show.

Ground Zero

This live music venue is for the teens, and is much more than a nightclub for young folks. It’s so much fun for everyone, thanks to an amazing and helpful staff. This Christ-based organization has a calendar of DJs and live performances all summer.

The Landing at the Boathouse

Cruise to this unpretentious bar on the water with an impressive concert schedule. Come eat (we recommend the Fire Cracker Shrimp) and drink (pint of Wheat Chin Music, anyone? It’s double IPA!). Then stick around for the entertainment.


Hot summer nights come alive at Riptyz’s patio and rooftop bar overlooking the ocean. Besides all the music action, it’s a great place to grab some fresh food, with a nice variety to choose from. Take in the tunes with a basket of Ahi Tuna & Avocado Toast or Smoked Gouda Cheese Egg Rolls.

Tin Roof

This is the party you’ve been looking for, right on the beachfront of a rooftop patio. There’s music day and night, from a stage with a gorgeous view as a backdrop. You might hear the next big thing on the country scene at these free events.
