Not much nightlife happening in South Carolina

Written by Patrick Rice on Monday, April 5th, 2010

I took a much needed 1 week vacation to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to unwind and relax. My intentions were just to walk the beach and catch up on some reading, but since my job is to report on all sorts of nightlife activity, I thought I would poke a few questions here and there to get a general view from folks who might know.

First, I took the liberty of asking my cleaning lady who looked like she could be in her early 20’s and must surely be the clubbing type. Her reply to me was “If you come to South Carolina to party, you came to the wrong place”. She informed me that SC was a very country and safe place to live, but the party aspect of it is lacking big time, especially in the Hip-Hop environment. Ok, so that was 1 person’s view. Later that night during supper at TGI Fridays, I asked the busboy the same questiong. He told me how they have several places to go. He began reading off all sorts of names and what they offer and I realized my question was a bit too vague. I re-started…where would someone go to hear some jazz music? He didn’t know. What about some R&B? No clue. I later found out that the venues he was naming me were Karaoke bars and kid friendly places.

Like I said earlier, I wasn’t really down there for work but if something had peaked my interest I would have checked it out.

All in all, I came away with the thinking that if you want to soak up some sun, it’s a great place to visit.  If you want to play some golf, it’s perfect.  But South Carolina is not the place to visit if you are looking for a happening nightlife atmosphere.
