Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to the Beach Music scene, there’s sure to be a spot for you on and your partner out on the floor. In addition to regular nights of fun, several of the clubs also host Society of Stranders festivals and get-togethers throughout the year, drawing thousands of people from all over the place, so there’s no shortage of opportunities to get your six-step on.

Just like their sibling-in-Shag down the street, Duck’s also features new live entertainment every week, and a full schedule of bands and dj’s during Society of Stranders events. Also located on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach, it’s close enough to Fat Harold’s to hop back and forth between the two as you see fit.

Pirate’s Cove Lounge

from 1 reviews

Among the many storied clubs along Main Street in North Myrtle Beach is a place with just as much history, yet a slightly different feel. Occupying a spot that’s been a staple of the North Myrtle Beach landscape for more than 75 years — housing clubs such as Pour House, The Cavalier Club and The Back Alley Lounge — Pirate’s Cove Lounge opened in 1995 and has been making noise ever since.
