Best Myrtle Beach Hotel Bars
Having a drink and sharing some small talk in a hotel bar can be one of the best parts of a vacation, and though they aren’t as popular in Myrtle Beach as they are in cities like Los Angeles, Miami, and New York, there are several resort watering holes in town that are worth checking out.
Whether you’re in the mood for a casual drink at a poolside cabana, a fancy experience at one of the area’s luxury resorts, or a relaxing sip at a contemporary lounge, there's definitely a seat waiting for you at one of these Myrtle Beach hotel bars.
The poolside amenity at one of Myrtle Beach’s favorite resorts is just steps from several of the water features, and provides guests with an excellent view of the Atlantic.

So pull up a chair, order a drink or some food, and let the steady breeze from the ocean transport you to a tropical state of mind.
