Here’s the future of Surfside’s entertainment district and pier

The hub of Surfside Beach could soon become a destination area featuring the pier, which is set to be rebuilt, and restaurants offering entertainment and events — the goal of the recently passed entertainment district.

The district, which was passed Tuesday night in a 6-1 vote, encompasses 1st Avenue South, starting at Dogwood Drive South, down to the ocean and Surfside Drive, starting at Dogwood Drive South.

The area includes River City Cafe, Surfside Beach Oceanfront, Scotty’s Beach Bar, Old Colony Realty, Neal and Pam’s Pub, Bubba’s Fish Shack, Seaside Rentals, one house and several parking lots.

While the rebuilding of the Surfside Pier has not yet started, council members are hoping the district will help to add to the draw of the area for tourists and locals.

“There’s going to be entertainment,” councilman David Pellegrino said. “It’s a nice place to come.”

Pellegrino said he hopes the district will provide incentive to investors to come in and build more restaurants that will provide entertainment. He cited the area as only having three restaurants, one bar and an ice cream shop.

The pier

While council members moved forward with the entertainment district, the focal point of the area, the pier, was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
