Cheap Beer, Please! The Best Budget Bars in Myrtle Beach
There's no doubt that Myrtle Beach has earned its reputation as one of the best budget vacation destinations around. From the affordable rooms and great hotel deals to the the happy hour bargains at local watering holes, there are plenty of ways to save some cash while you're enjoying yourself at the beach.
We've listed some of our favorite local bars and restaurants for cheap drinks and great happy hour bargains. Don't see your favorite spot listed? Add it to the comments below!
The only catch about this inexpensive watering hole is you have to buy the ticket to get to in. At the Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball stadium, the tickets are only $9 to get into a home game and then from there the prices just go down. On Thirsty Thursdays they offer $1 Budweisers and Bud Lights in the “thirst inning deck.” On Tuesdays they have $2 craft beers all over the stadium, and on Fridays wine is half off! So come check out the leading baseball team on the Grand Strand and get some cheap drinks.
The Boathouse is home to free concerts on Friday nights plus a Sunday Funday concert series all summer long. Happy hour pints start at $1.83. They also offer great specials during Steelers and Gamecocks games on buckets of beers, PBR and more. Enjoy a beer out back overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway or inside around the huge bar.
Whether you're there to watch a game or to sing your heart out at karaoke, Broadway Louie’s is your number one location for cheap fun at Broadway at the Beach. They offer $1.50 Budweiser and Bud Light drafts all day every day plus they're part of a Pub Crawl around the complex every Tuesday night. Happy Hour specials include $2.50 domestic bottles and $3 imports.
This local hangout is a favorite among all because everyone can enjoy themselves and still keep something in their pocket. The $1.50 draft of bowery beer is a fan favorite, but they also offer Landshark for $1.75 on draft. The beer prices get everyone there, but it's the live music and rocking people that make everyone stay all night.
Let's get straight to the point- Hamburger Joe’s has $1 drafts all day! A hot spot for tourists and locals of the area, Hamburger Joe’s is a great place to take the family and enjoy some inexpensive fun. They live up to their name as well, serving up great burgers for only $3. Make your visit to Hamburger Joe’s one everyone will notice by putting a dollar bill on the wall. It's either that, or buy another beer, - your choice!
If you want some true down south oysters, then Shuckers is the place for you. Shuckers Raw Bar has you covered with the cheap drinks as well, which is why they made this list. They serve up beers for $2.50 during happy hour and liquor drinks are $3.50. Don’t leave without biting into some fresh seafood like the grouper or tuna sandwich and, of course, the oysters.
This Murrells Inlet favorite has a view that could make any price worth it. Lucky for you, Creek Ratz prices are already down so you can enjoy double the fun. Located on the MarshWalk between Dead Dog Saloon and Bubba’s Love Shack, Creek Ratz offers $1.80 PBRs, and $1 off domestic wine and house liquors with live entertainment throughout the year.
Fiesta del Burro Loco features great specials all week long. Mondays you feature two for $5 margaritas all day long, they have tequila specials on Tuesdays, Whiskey Wednesday specials, live music on Thursdays and rehab brunch during the weekends with $1 Bloody Marias. CCU students can get a free ride from Monarch 544 on Friday nights. Daily Happ Hour specials include $3.50 house margaritas, $2.95 house liquor drinks, $2.50 drafts, $8.50 pitchers, $3.95 beergaritas and $14.95 frozen ritas pitchers.
Beach House Bar and Grill
Beach House Bar and Grill is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach and offers a great spot for people watching with a cool cocktail. They offer $9 beer tasting flights, "Fish Bowl Fridays" made with 68 ounces of your favorite concoction and there's always 15% off for locals.
Located just across U.S. 501 from Coastal Carolina University, Tongy’s Shmackhouse caters to a college-aged crowd with drinks and food for even the tightest budgets. During happy hour they have a selection of sandwiches and wraps that are half-off, and the same goes for all of their alcohol from 4-8 P.M. After happy hour the spending doesn’t go up much — $2 PBRs and $4 liquor drinks are the way to go. Also on Tuesday nights, they serve $1 pitchers beginning at 9 p.m. If you go, it's best to get there early before they run out.
