In April 2018, THEBlvd, located at 1410 Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, had its grand opening. It is a three-story, oceanfront, live music and entertainment complex which is the first of its kind on Ocean Boulevard. The design elements of the building complement the surroundings with glass exterior walls, outdoor seating areas, and open-air breezeways that result in breathtaking ocean views.
The 55,000 square foot building, when fully occupied, will have retail, dining and entertainment space. Some of the spectacular views from the building are of Myrtle Beach’s most famous landmarks—the 14th Avenue Pier, the Skywheel, and the boardwalk.
Ocean Boulevard in downtown Myrtle Beach has long been the main attraction for visitors to the Grand Strand, and it is currently undergoing some welcome new changes. THEBlvd is the second new addition to Ocean Boulevard. In 2017, Rip Tydz, a beachfront restaurant boasting an open-air rooftop bar overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, opened just a few blocks down from THEBlvd location. The Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Bureau is excited about the new entertainment complex and stated:
“We could not be happier to welcome this new Myrtle Beach venture. The Blvd will be a unique addition to Myrtle Beach’s music and culinary scene. Live music, an array of high-quality food, and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is a winning combination for our visitors and residents alike. The new corporate investment adds diversity to our traditional product mix and is a major step in helping to revitalize the area.”
THEBlvd already has some exciting new tenants such as:
Tin Roof Myrtle Beach—A Nashville-based entertainment venue that occupies the entire third floor of the new building, including an expansive oceanfront rooftop patio. With the tagline “A Live Music Joint”, it brings live music and DJ’s to separate stages nightly. It will feature tasty food and the Tin Roof Bar Myrtle Beach, a full bar in a fun, eclectic environment.
Burger Fi—This national burger chain is on the ground floor of the entertainment complex. It features gourmet burgers with fresh natural ingredients. Some of its more popular entrees include the CEO burger featuring a pair of Wagyu and brisket-blend patties topped with candied bacon-tomato jam, truffle aioli, and aged Swiss cheese, and the Conflicted Burger with an Angus beef patty and a veggie patty, all topped with American and white cheddar cheeses, lettuce, tomato, and BurgerFi Sauce. It will also have a full bar.
Banditos Myrtle Beach—This popular Mexican Restaurant is returning to its former location under a new roof. The new Banditos boasts a modern atmosphere along with a new menu. Serving Mexican classics like nachos, quesadillas, tacos, and burritos as well as salads, burgers, and sandwiches. Banditos also have an oceanfront bar, which serves beer, wine, tequila, margaritas, and cocktails.
Starbucks—This famous Seattle-based coffeehouse chain will be serving its freshly brewed coffee, cold brews, espressos, Frappuccinos, tea drinks and smoothies along with beautiful ocean views. They will also be serving pastries, yogurts, and other food items.
The Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center is always working to provide more entertainment and quality fun for our visitors to the Grand Strand. We are sure there are more new additions to follow THEBlvd, the three-story, oceanfront entertainment complex on Ocean Boulevard. According to Patrick Marino, one of the developing partners:
“People are in Myrtle Beach to enjoy the beach, and this building was designed to provide great food, entertainment and shopping in a location that maximizes our greatest local asset – a beautiful beach.”
