House of Blues
The list of stars who have played at this Barefoot Landing venue includes such big names as 311, Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Eminem. The patchwork warehouse structure has a definite Southern, bluesy vibe, with folk art on the walls and pretty much everywhere else you look. The space is big enough for a good-sized crowd, but small enough that there really aren’t any bad places to watch the show from – unless you get stuck behind a much taller person.More Info
Boathouse Waterway Bar & Grill
This Intracoastal Waterway bar and grill has become a summertime hotspot for national and regional bands, with boats pulling up out back to watch the show, and locals and tourists filling the building and back patio. But the fun isn’t just limited to the hot months — their NashVegas Nights series brings in live acts every Friday night year-round.More Info

Aside from being one of the area’s tastiest dining destinations, Murrells Inlet has long been a popular place for the party crowd.

Pirate's Cove Lounge
There are two stages at this North Myrtle Beach concert venue, and since local and regional bands typically share the bill, live music-lovers can catch several acts in one night. Shows are booked every night of the week during the summer, and the off-season is also full of great rock, indie, punk, and alternative bands.More Info

A favorite among repeat visitors, Sands Ocean Club’s wooden patio bar gives beachgoers a chance to live it up just a stone’s throw from the waves.
