Myrtle Beach’s Atlas Tap House
A full day of exploring downtown Myrtle Beach boardwalk, riding the Skywheel, Ripleys Odditorium or just hanging out on the beach can work up a thirst. In the middle of all the amazing attractions and things to do sits a quiet unassuming place on a quiet unassuming street corner that is perfect to quench that thirst. In fact, if you didn’t know it was there you might walk right by it, I know I have which up until recently has been my loss. Atlas Tap House is the quintessential spot after a day at the beach for craft beer and good grub.
Atlas Tap House was opened by brothers Aaron and Mark Gifford in early 2014, and the timing couldn’t have been better. At a time when the craft brew craze was hitting the southern coast hard, The Gifford brothers planted themselves right in the heart of the Myrtle Beach tourist area. Atlas has an extensive craft beer menu that is sure to satisfy any craft brew fan with over 25 craft creations on tap and more than 80 cans and bottles. The Giffords took this a step further if beer isn’t your thing. They also have an extensive cocktail list and also specialize in bourbons. Their crafted bourbon menu has better than 50 unique and rare bourbons to choose from.
Along with Atlas’ beer, bourbon and cocktail menu that puts most bars and restaurants in the area to shame, they have a food menu that is equally impressive.

If you’re looking for a little lighter fare the menu offers plenty of options for suit your taste from soft tacos to smoked wings and mozzarella sticks, as well as unique items such as mozzarella risotto balls. If the appetizers don’t quite cut it for you the mammoth burgers and chicken or pork barbecue sandwiches are certain to.
All of that sounds amazing, but what is a bar or restaurant without an atmosphere to match? Well, atmosphere Atlas Tap House has. The full back porch and patio deck provide the perfect spot to have a delicious craft beer and watch the happenings in downtown Myrtle Beach, play a round of cornhole or a game of giant Jenga. If you’re ready to get out of the sun for awhile and something a little more low-key the indoor section is the place to be. If a game of darts or pool is what you’re looking for, or maybe just kick back and watch the game Atlas Tap House has it covered.
Whether you’re a regular visitor, local or this is your first visit to the Myrtle Beach area this is a spot you can’t pass up. With an outstanding beer menu, a unique bourbon selection, and amazing food it can’t be beat. Add the indoor and outdoor atmosphere and its the perfect way to end your day on The Grand Strand.
