Broadway at the Beach

 

Shopping, dining, attractions, amusements, entertainment, nightlife and much more. 

New in 2016

 

When it opened in 1995, Broadway at the Beach brought a new kind of shopping, dining and entertainment experience to the Carolina coast. Modeled after some of the nation's best entertainment districts at that time, it rapidly became a popular gathering place for locals, and soon was attracting 14 million tourists a year. Today, it's the number one tourist destination in all of South Carolina.

 

After 20 years, Broadway is getting a facelift. Just this week they pulled back the curtain to reveal the first step of a planned multiyear transformation of Broadway. First up: our entertainment and nightlife section which is currently known as Celebrity Square.

 

The newly-designed entertainment area will have a mix of great national brands, up-and-coming concepts, and favorites that appeal to the whole family. Everything, including our common areas, will reflect a new overall theme.

 

Here are some of the exciting things coming up:

 

Dave & Buster's is coming to Broadway at the Beach. Known as the only place where you can eat, drink, play, and watch sports, Dave & Buster’s is all about entertaining the guest, delivering the latest and greatest games, ultimate sports viewing, and extraordinary food and drinks.

 

Hard Rock Café Myrtle Beach is moving to an interior, corner location that will be the new entryway to our redesigned entertainment and nightlife area. In its new location, Hard Rock will be able to seat 528 guests, feature private event space, patio seating, and a live music stage. Music memorabilia from new and legendary artists will still be on display and the Rock Shop will be loaded with souvenir goodies.

 

The operators of Wicked Tuna in Murrells Inlet, S.C., and Enso Asian Bar & Sushi in Charlotte, N.C., are opening a new culinary and craft beer experience — American Tap House. This will be a chef-driven American gastropub dedicated to the art of fine food and beer. Look for it to have 40 regional and local American craft beers on tap, as well as unique craft food inspired by American comfort food with a southern twist.

 

Celebrations Nitelife is introducing a new nightlife experience unlike any other in the area. OZ is set to open this spring, and each night, it will have a different themed look, feel and design. You'll see it transform right before your eyes. One time you'll be looking at the lights of Paris and the next, the rings of Saturn. Expect it to be a true out-of-this-world experience.

 

But what about some other favorites? Broadway Louie's, also part of Celebrations Nitelife, recently moved to a new corner location near the comedy club. Stop by to enjoy its new full-food menu and outside patio bar. The award-winning Broadway Jake's All Star Karaoke is still going strong each night.

 

As for Malibu's Surf Bar, Crocodile Rocks, Original Shucker's Raw Bar and Carolina Comedy Club — you'll still be able to find them where they've always been!

 

Changes are just beginning for Broadway. So stop by and check them out!

The museum resides on the first floor of an old McCrory’s five and dime store building built in the 1920’s. The original brick walls, maple floors and high ceilings were restored during an extensive renovation of the 5,000 square foot space. A large deck overlooking the Sampit River was added to the back of the building.

Current exhibits include models of historic ships and boats that once plied South Carolina waters, a photographic exhibit called “HENRIETTA, the Largest wooden Sailing Ship Ever Built in South Carolina”, and a documentary film about coastal South Carolina’s shipbuilding and lumber industry during the nineteenth century. Nautical artifacts include a 22,000 lb. propeller salvaged from a ship that sank in 1905 off the coast of Cape Romain, S.C. The original fresnel lens from the Georgetown Lighthouse will soon be on display.

There is a Museum store stocked with local history and maritime related books, museum logo apparel such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and hats, and other nautical gifts for adults and children.

Museum programs and events include the SC Youth Sailing Summer Camp for 8-14 year olds, and the annual” Burning of the Socks”, a boater’s celebration of the the spring solstice. The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show, always held on the third Saturday in October, is the major fundraiser for the museum.
