THE LOCALE | Pulse Ultra Club
THE LOWDOWN | Drinks, dancing, deejays and entertainment. They're all found at Pulse Ultra Club, and that's where we went for happy hour this week.
Pulse Ultra Club is a hotspot for gay nightlife. Its previous location was in the heart of Myrtle Beach, but the club recently moved to the south end of Myrtle Beach proper in the building that most recently housed Daisy Dukes Country Saloon.
At Pulse Ultra Club you'll find a mix of gays, straights, couples, singles, locals and tourists. Some belly-up to the long black bar that runs across one side of the building. Others can be seen lounging at tables and couches scattered around the establishment, and you might spot a handful of people playing pool, pinball or Pac-Man. And once the music cranks up at night, you're sure to find a lot of people on the dance floor dancing the night away.
A deejay spins music Thursday through Sunday nights, and you can watch drag shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. There's also a matinee drag show at 7 p.m. on Fridays. Each Monday and Wednesday night you can sing karaoke. Tuesday nights the bar hosts Drag Queen Bingo and on Thursday nights people can enter a talent contest or kick back and watch the talent show.
Happy hour runs from 5 to 8 p.m. daily. Drink specials include $1.75 domestic beers, $2.50 well drinks and $1 discount on call liquors. Food deals include $2 corn dogs, $2 chili dog and chips, $2.50 french fries basket, $3 onion rings, $3.75 bacon cheese fries, $5 burger and fries and $5 BBQ sandwich and fries.
