Amenity Spotlight: MIXX Swim-Up Pool Bar
One of the most popular amenities at hotel BLUE is the MIXX Swim-Up Pool Bar. Unlike any other bar you’ve seen (as this was the first in the state and one of only few existing swim-up bars in Myrtle Beach), this is not your typical pool bar.
One major unique aspect of this amenity is that you can swim up to the bar and sit on a bar stool without ever have to leave the pool! The submerged stools make for a refreshing place to enjoy a drink, or you can get your drink and head over to the other side of the pool, the hot tub or one of the many lounge chairs located on our in-water sun shelves.
Plus, this bar has a dry side, so if you want to come down before going out for dinner, for example, you can grab a seat on the dry side and not worry about getting wet. It’s really great for any time of day!
The pool bar offers a variety of drink options including the popular Voodoo Bucket (it’s one of the largest drinks you’ll find here) and ice cold beers and margaritas.
Cool off with the Key Lime Crush, made with Cruzan Key Lime Rum, Pineapple Whipped Vodka, and mixed with pineapple and lime juices. Or, go with the Lava Flow made with Cruzan Light Rum as well as Pina Colada and Strawberry Mix. Or, if you prefer something more coffee-like, try the Dirty Banana made with Kahlua Coffee Liqueur, Cruzan Banana Rum and Ice Cream Mix. No matter what you try, you won’t be disappointed!
This bar is open seasonally, weather permitting, with hours varying based on time of year. During peak summer it’s generally open beginning at 11 a.m. or noon until about 7 or 8 p.m. Check with the front desk when you arrive for more information and get ready to experience one of the coolest bars at the beach!
