A Weekly Review of The Strand’s Happy Hour Scene

for Weekly SurgeMay 29, 2012 


THE LOWDOWN | Are you ready for RED? It's a brand new bar in Myrtle Beach. RED stands for Relax - Eat - Dance, so be ready to do all three while you're there. Drinking falls under the "eating/consumption" category, so go ahead and do that, too... especially during happy hour when there are great prices.

RED is located on Robert Grissom Parkway in a location that used to be a pool hall. It's a family friendly joint (until 10 p.m.) with a friendly staff. You can come and relax, enjoy some food, and get up and dance once the DJ starts. There's a great sound and light system and there's a deejay every night RED is open. (RED is closed on Tuesdays.)

The locale has a black floor, bar, walls and tables with red accents throughout the establishment, including three red pool tables. Bar games don't stop there. You can play darts, beer pong, ping pong, Golden Tee and foosball. Disco balls hang above the front door, and records hang in front of the front windows acting as blinds. You can choose to snag a seat at the bar in the back, in one of the high or low-top tables, or one of the two raised VIP sections.

The menu has a little bit of everything, including burgers, wings, tacos, hoagies, salads, appetizers and more. Speaking of appetizers, you can get them half-price during happy hour, which runs from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. Wednesday through Monday (closed on Tuesdays.) Appetizer deals include $2 hummus, $3 mozzarella and tomato salads and a dozen wings for $4.50.

Drinks are half-price, too, during happy hour. That means domestic beers cost $1.50, imports cost $2 and PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) is just a buck. During happy hour you can also get Absolut vodka for $2.50, Jagermeister and Crown Royal for $3.50, Patron for $4 and house wine for two bucks.

TIPS | RED is near the intersection of U.S. 501 and Robert Grissom Parkway. Ask for Red
