Fat Harold’s Myrtle Beach, Guide & Review
Another venue that upholds the South Carolina tradition of shagging is Far Harold’s. The club is a popular beachfront establishment that claims to be dedicated to shag and nothing more. You will find it surrounded by other venues on Ocean Drive, which makes up the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach’s nightlife. It has a rustic appearance of a beach shack, but the interior will impress you with the hardwood dance floors and a wild crowd. They serve split beer and play the kind of music you would typically hear in the ’50s or ’60’s dive bar.
The club has an attached bar which is convenient for dancers who have worked up a thirst. Fat Harold’s comes highly recommended if only for beach music and entertaining dance performance. If you are new to the area and want to be initiated into the world of shag dancing, then the place also offers free lessons every Tuesday night. Mandy and River are the resident instructors ready to teach you the art of shag with their infectious positive attitude. The venue lives up to its reputation and the multitude of awards it has won over the years.
A DJ is spinning the best records throughout the week, and there are plenty of restaurants nearby so that you can stop after a romantic dinner. Bring your partner or find one on the dance floor. They have two rooms for dancing and plenty of space for you to cool off with refreshing drinks. Fat Harold’s is part of the Carolina Beach Music Awards Hall of Fame, and people from far and wide come to visit. There will never be a dull moment when you are on your night out at Harold’s.
