Sometimes a good vacation can be made even better by an evening spent in one of the local bars, drinking delicious adult beverages as you listen to music. If you’re there long enough, you get to know the “regulars,” the bartender starts to remember your drink preferences, and it starts to feel a little bit like home—only with a beach and an ocean and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet in your life. This is especially true of the bars in Isle of Palms. Year-round residents of Isle of Palms are a friendly sort; they will wave and smile when they pass you on the street and they will always remember to ask you about your kids or pets as they serve you your next draft beer. Here’s a list of a few of our favorite Isle of Palms, SC bars. You should stop in and wet your whistle when you’re in the neighborhood!
