Six Live Music Spots

  1. Red’s Ice House (98 Church Street)

    Red’s Ice House features live music on the deck five times a week, along with weekly specials like all-you-can-eat crab legs and a Sunday Bloody Mary bar.  With beautiful views of Shem Creek, it’s the perfect place to kick back with a cold beer, dig in to a bucket of steamed oysters, and listen to one of the Lowcountry’s many talented artists.

  2. The Rusty Rudder (3563 N Highway 17)

    The Rusty Rudder offers live music—rock, country, blues, rockabilly, funk, and plenty more—on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights in North Mount Pleasant. Their expansive patio has plenty of outdoor seating and the firepit is the perfect place to enjoy some music when the weather starts to cool down. Order up some of their smoked and grilled wings and one of the 8+ local beers on tap and enjoy. Website.

  3. McCann’s Irish Pub (2700 N Highway 17)

    McCann’s Irish Pub is a neighborhood favorite with a different spin on live music. The live acts at McCann’s often play traditional Irish music, along with traditional Irish storytelling. Paired with a perfectly poured pint of Guinness, there’s no better way to spend an evening. Website.

  4. Page’s Okra Grill (302 Coleman Blvd.)

    Most bars and restaurants host live musicians in the evening, but early birds can catch live acoustic sets during brunch at Page’s Okra Grill. The lines may be long, but with a huge Bloody Mary Bar, bottomless mimosas, and soft acoustic guitar on the patio, you won’t mind waiting. Website.

  5. Fill Restaurant and Piano Bar (1150 Hungryneck Boulevard)

    If acoustic guitars aren’t your thing, Fill Restaurant and Piano Bar has live piano music 6 nights a week, including open mic nights, family friendly shows, and dueling pianos.  The extensive martini list and refined dinner menu make it the perfect place for a date night. Website.

  6. The Southern (730 Coleman Blvd.)

    The Southern is a true music-lover’s bar. No matter what your musical tastes, there’s an act for you—rock, bluegrass, modern country, and jazz are all on the calendar for this month. The atmosphere is relaxed, the bar is filled with regulars, and the bartenders are friendly. So pull up a barstool and kick back to whatever band provides the soundtrack to your ideal evening.
