You wander into a dimly lit room and are led to a cozy corner booth. Glancing around, you notice a dapperly dressed gentleman behind the bar, vigorously shaking a cocktail. He pours the drink in a glass and lights it on fire, as wisps of smoke gently float up from the rim of the glass. You watch in awe as the faint smell of a campfire wafts across the room. Feeling as though you’ve stepped back in time and stumbled into a bar in a big city, you’re a bit confused by where you are. But in actuality – you’re still right here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the only speakeasy along the Grand Strand – Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen.
Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen specializes in creating a unique bar experience unlike any other in Myrtle Beach. We utilize a ‘Farm to Shaker’ style approach when it comes to crafting our list of refreshing cocktails. After a hot day on the beach spent basking in the sun, an ice cold Honeysuckle Mule or The Gin Slap is just the cocktail to sip to cool you right off. If you’re more into dabbling in darker liquors, we offer quite the selection of bourbons and whiskeys. Try a Smokin’ Oldie, Manhattan, or a glass poured straight from one of our small barrels that we barrel age ourselves. We also offer a selection of wine and a variety of craft beer from local breweries that we pour on draft and by can or bottle. Not sure what to order? We even have a special ‘Bartenders Choice’ cocktail where you choose two adjectives from a list and one of our bartenders crafts a personalized cocktail just for you. No matter what you choose to sip on, we offer quite the selection to sip away any summer night.
Not only do we know our way around a craft cocktail, but Strong Waters Bar offers delectable dishes to enhance any date night or group night out. We source our ingredients locally and are known for putting our own twist on Lowcountry cuisine. Our menu features an assortment of shared plates, salads, seafood, and decadent desserts. Start your meal by ordering a few Shrimp and Grit Egg Rolls for the table or split the Pork Belly Tacos. For the main course, dive into fresh Sea Bass Risotto or savor the Lobster mac. And make sure to save room for dessert! We serve up a delicious banana creme brulee and bread pudding … just to name a few.
If you’re not convinced that our cuisine and cocktails make Strong Waters Bar the perfect spot to spend a summer night out in Myrtle Beach, our live music might! Each Friday and Saturday night, we feature live entertainment starting at 7pm. We host a variety of local musicians that include a solo act jamming on an acoustic guitar to funky jazz groups. The atmosphere has the essence of a speakeasy from the roaring twenties, but with a modern vibe. And it’s not hard to find. Strong Waters Bar can be found on 21 and Ocean, right across the street from The Breakers Resort.
