THE LOCALE | The Sound Hole

THE LOWDOWN | This week we stumbled upon the The Sound Hole in downtown Myrtle Beach. It's a locals joint that focuses on live music. We joined some regulars belly-up to the bar for this week's happy hour excursion.

The Sound Hole is a watering hole located just a couple blocks away from Ocean Boulevard in downtown Myrtle Beach in a building that has housed several bars including Spring Break Bar & Grill, Two Dollar Bills, Animal House, AJ's Sports Bar & Grill and the original Rainbow House. It is a music venue that offers live music on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as throughout the week. Known colloquially as the "Metal Bar," you will hear metal, rock, punk and live original music. It's a locals bar that features local musicians.

The Sound Hole has hardwood floors, low-top tables, a pool table, bar and an area where musicians can play. There are concert posters on the walls and drink specials are listed on a mirror that covers the wall next to the bar. You can enjoy winter specialty drinks such as Candy Cane, Hot Butter Wine or Witches Brew, or if you dare, try the popular Brain Shot, which is a layered shot with a rum base.

The establishment holds fundraisers about once a month. Check Facebook for details. The Sound Hole is also a hub of activity for the Myrtle Beach Zombie Walk. There's an upcoming party for those zombie fans at 8 p.m. on Dec. 18.

Happy hour runs 5 - 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. During happy hour, you can get $1 discounts on draft beer, making PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) $1.75, Yuengling $2.75 and craft beers $3.75. You can also find other occasional drink specials during happy hour.

TIPS | You can park on the street and there's also a parking lot behind the bar.

FIND IT | 1004 Chester Street, Myrtle Beach. Call 712-1218.
