5 Myrtle Beach Craft Cocktail Bars You Must Visit on Your Next Trip

Myrtle Beach continues to develop into a spot for cuisine and spirits.

It should be no surprise. This vacation favorite destination has become more complex and diverse over the years. As drinking tastes become more complex, Myrtle Beach is staying a step ahead.

For a night you’re in the mood for something more than what’s on tap, visit these establishments.

Where to Go On the Grand Strand for Craft Cocktails

1. Tin Roof

You can’t miss this joint — it’s the place on the roof where beautiful people stream in and live music spills over. It’s a party spot, for sure, and has the vibe, the bartenders, and the view to put it over the top. There’s always something cool on the calendar, too, so check out the site before you’re on site.

Order this: The Brown Sugar Old Fashioned. It has TINCUP American whiskey, brown sugar simple, angostura bitters, and an orange slice.

2. Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen

Step in and step back in time to Prohibition America for locally sourced food and drink. Definitely visit for a meal, not just for drinks. The food is that good (try the Rib Stack and Chef’s Board sharable dishes!) Reserve a table online, and prepare to enjoy their farm-to-shaker approach to cocktails.

Order this: The Weekender. It has prosecco, Chambord, rhubarb bitters, and fresh thyme.

3. Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar

Remember this bar when you come back in summer. Bring your swimsuit for the onsite pool! It’s super fun for the whole family, with stuff for the kids while you indulge in a craft cocktail. Like Tin Roof, this place is a perpetual party on an oceanview rooftop.

Order this: Annie’s Tea. It has vodka, tequila, rum, gin with sour, triple sec, lime, and cola.

4. Bummz Beach Cafe

This restaurant has a sizeable patio with great views, with burgers, seafood, and steak on the menu. It’s an enchanting beach haunt with a cheerful staff who’ll see to it you have a good time. They’re serving up cold beer, yummy food, and gorgeous views year-round.

Order this: Bummz Beach Relief. Their signature cocktail has Raspberry Vodka, Coconut Rum, pineapple, and cranberry juice.

Order this: Beachside Peach Rocktail. It has Smirnoff peach vodka, pineapple juice, cranberry juice, and a splash of ginger ale.
