THE LOCALE | Pulse Ultra Club
THE LOWDOWN | Pulse Ultra Club in downtown Myrtle Beach is known as a hot spot for gay nightlife, late-night revelry, drag shows and dancing, but what people may not realize is the upscale night club has great happy hour specials as well. That's where we stopped in this week for happy hour.
Despite the club being geared toward the gay and lesbian community, everyone (of legal age) is welcome at Pulse Ultra Club. You'll find a mix of genders and ages. Some patrons sit at the leather bar stools along the curvy bar. Others take a comfortable seat in a section with white leather chairs and couches. At night the DJ plays dance music and people make their way out to the dance floor. You'll see a large stage off to the back. That's where the entertainment takes place. On Fridays and Saturdays you'll find entertainment such as drag shows or go-go dances. On Mondays and Wednesdays people can sing Karaoke, Tuesdays are game nights with retro diversions such as Twister, and on Thursdays the club hosts a Quest for the Best Talent Show.
In the back you'll find a separate room with a pool table. There's also a cafe beside the bar with tables and chairs and a projector screen showing the action on the stage in the main room. The menu includes appetizers, burgers, hot dogs and wings.
Happy hour runs from 5 to 8 p.m. daily. Drink deals include $1.75 domestic beers, $2.50 well drinks and $1 discount on premium liquors.
