Top 10 Bars for Singles in Myrtle Beach
Even in the Internet age, with matchmaking websites all the rage, it’s still nice for singles to get out to mix and mingle. Maybe that love connection that singles are so eager to make is just around the corner in the same place where karaoke, live music, the big game, and happy hour chicken wings rule the roost.
Here are our picks for the Top Ten Single’s Bars along the Grand Strand.
Part urban chic, part casual Japanese cocktail lounge, sushi bar, rooftop bar, and restaurant, Soho, near downtown Myrtle Beach manages to appeal to that rarest combination of singles and couples of all ages, who intermingle comfortably. While many of our picks lean toward a certain age group, Soho does not. Young, old and in between are all welcome.
Liberty Tap Room/Liberty Brewery & Grill
We’ll include both Liberty properties as one entry; Liberty Tap Room at 76th Ave North, and Liberty Brewery & Grill at Broadway at the Beach, because they both attract a similar crowd. Large groups of men and women, with lots of singles, congregate at these two restaurants, especially after work, or for big televised sporting events. A great Happy Hour helps the draw.
Greg Norman's Australian Grille
On the north end of the Grand Strand, at Barefoot Resort along the Intracoastal Waterway, Greg Norman’s casual but upscale ambience attracts a slightly more mature crowd of singles to the large outdoor deck and inside lounge. Happy Hour draws big crowds year-round, and the seasonal live music helps set the mood for romance.
Bubba's Love Shak
How could we not include Bubba’s on the Marsh Walk in Murrells Inlet on this list? The name alone implies that love is in the salt air. In the warmer months, Bubba’s encourages singles of all ages to congregate during the late afternoon and Happy Hour, but after 10 p.m., this is the 20-something Mecca of Murrells Inlet.
Boasting the best brews, chews, and views on the beach, RipTydz is an oceanfront bar that has quickly become a top spot among locals and visitors to the Myrtle Beach area since it opened in 2017. This bar and restaurant, which features indoor seating as well as an open air bar and a rooftop bar, is a great place for singles to grab a drink and meet new people while listening to live music. Plus, RipTydz has a sandy oceanfront area by the boardwalk where singles can meet new people and play games like corn hole!
Tin Roof is one of the newest bars on the Grand Strand, and this oceanfront bar welcomes singles of all ages to come out and have a great time. Tin Roof boasts a rooftop bar right on the ocean, providing a run yet romantic atmosphere. Guests here will enjoy music from live bands on the indoor stage, which also encourages singles to dance with one another.
King Kong Sushi
With two locations serving the Grand Strand; one in Carolina Forest, the other at Broadway at the Beach, King Kong Sushi attracts a mixed-age crowd that leans toward college aged and 20-something as the night wears on. Sophisticated, yet casual, and serving excellent sushi, King Kong might just deliver a king size romance.
Hot Fish Club
This Murrells Inlet restaurant features two bars, both popular with locals and visitors. The one on the inside, attached to the restaurant is friendly, and casual, with an air of style without being snooty. The gazebo bar outside, especially on weekend nights with live music, is a no-holds barred free-for-all singles mishmash of mostly 20 and 30-somethings, and after reception wedding partiers.
10% OFF Your Entire Food Bill at Hot Fish Club
This local’s secret in Carolina Forest takes a GPS or sharp cab driver to find. On weekends and late nights it’s packed with college kids and a younger crowd from the neighboring Carolina Forest community. Just 10 minutes west of Myrtle Beach, this English-styled Pub is comfortable and safe for all ages, and especially popular with 20-somethings.
Fat Harold's Beach Club
The Shag is the official dance of South Carolina, and shaggers of all ages have been visiting Fat Harold’s in North Myrtle Beach for generations. Mature singles come in large groups for weekly shag lessons, and in-season, on weekends, there’s enough love going around to make Cupid blush.
