We still have some warm days left this season, so head to one of these spots to cool down with a post-beach beverage.

After a day on the beach, nothing hits the spot quite like an ice cold beer, a refreshing cocktail or a relaxing glass of your favorite wine. Check out these Grand Strand spots that are perfect for grabbing a post-beach beverage.


Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar & Grill
910 North Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach, 
(843) 213-1632 
(plus a location in North Myrtle Beach and a second location in Myrtle Beach at 21st Ave. N.)


Shake the sand off your flip flops, climb up onto the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and step foot inside Dirty Don’s for a glass of your fave beer, wine or frozen cocktail. Three locations add up to more fun, but any one you choose offers happy hour Monday through Friday from 4–6 p.m., with specials on drinks and munchies. Some standout sips include Patrick’s Painkiller, The Cyclone, the two for $10 classic shots and the pitcher specials that also come with a free T-shirt so you can remember your visit (well, maybe).

Cabana Cafe
1 Norris Drive, Pawleys Island, 
(843) 235-8700


Cheers to Cabana Cafe! To all the years of serving as the pit stop for hydrating after baking on the white sands of Pawleys. There’s no better place to cool off than this open air beach bar overlooking the dunes and Litchfield Inn’s pool oasis, while catching the sea breeze and the sounds of live beach music. Add to that a cold draft beer or a frozen drink in your hand and you have the perfect day. The Cabana is open through December, so hurry up!

Inlet Provision Company
4891 U.S. 17, Murrells Inlet, 
(843) 299-2444


If you’re beaching on the south end of the Strand, swing by the IPC for a beverage at the bar or on the back deck. Located south of the MarshWalk, IPC offers a full list of craft beers, wine and bubblies, plus a section of Crafty Cocktails. We suggest the refreshing Seasonal Sangria, a blend of red and rosé wines, and the MIM, or Murrells Inlet Mule, the local version of a Moscow Mule shaken and poured into a copper cup. Just the right concoction to cool things off on a summer’s eve before the sun sets.

Wild Wing Cafe
4706 U.S. 17 S., North Myrtle Beach, 
(843) 361-9464


For north end beachgoers—or boaters docking off the waterway—take a timeout at Wild Wing Cafe in Barefoot Landing and tip back a couple cold drinks. The sports bar is a comfortable spot to chill and unwind with friends and family. And the full bar offers beverage service with a smile, tapping into a lengthy list of craft beers and cocktails for rounds of fun. Hold on tight!
