A Weekly Review of The Strand’s Happy Hour Scene

January 15, 2013 

THE LOCALE | Swillies Hideaway, North Myrtle Beach

THE LOWDOWN | If dancers haven't been to this place yet, they're missing out on a great dance floor. If drinkers haven't been to this place yet, they're missing out on great deals around the clock. We’re talking about Swillies Hideaway, which is where we went to happy hour this week.

Swillies Hideaway is tucked away off 2nd Ave. North in North Myrtle Beach on the OTHER side of U.S. 17 - the side away from the beach. But if you dance your way over to the establishment that used to be The Hideaway, you'll find that Swillies Hideaway has an impressive dance floor and equally impressive drink deals.

It's a locals bar, with all ages and all types. In addition to the main room, which houses a long bar, high-top tables and a couple of pool tables, there's a small, more private room with a bar and comfortable chairs that has the feel of a cigar bar -without the cigars (but you can smoke outside.) The bar opens at 10 a.m. and it's a late night spot, too, staying open until the wee hours of the morning. On Thursday and Friday nights there's a DJ and Karaoke.

Swillies Hideaway offers happy hour deals all day everyday. Drink deals include $2.75 domestic beers, $3.25 imports, $3.50 well drinks and $3.50 wines. On Mondays you can snag $1.50 cans, $2 well drinks, $2.25 bottled beer and $4 Rumple Minze and Jagermeister.

TIPS | Swillies Hideaway is located across from the Santee Cooper office on 2nd Ave. North in North Myrtle Beach.

FIND IT | 1021 2nd Avenue North, North Myrtle Beach. Call 280-5301.
