I have a special place in my Happy Hour heart for hotel bars. Often times they are forgotten about amongst massive resorts or it is almost like a treasure hunt in simply trying to find where they are located. One of the newer hotel bars is in the Westgate Resort in downtown Myrtle Beach. Drafts Sports Bar & Grill is a very nice looking sports bar with brand new giant flat screens, all the sports packages, a good beer selection and some good bar food. One main problem is trying to get to the place though. You can see the sign clearly from Ocean Blvd, but there is no clear place to park. You can actually park at the Westgate Resort as long as you tell the attendant (if there is one posted) that you are going to Drafts. Once you park you still have to walk around the building to get there. It is a bit convoluted, but if you are looking for a good new sports bar then it is worth your trouble. The prices are on the higher side especially on some of the beers, but you get a dollar off at Happy Hour and there is also a $5 Happy Hour food menu. If you are cruising the boulevard and want to stop in somewhere to catch the game then Drafts is one of the newer and better options to try out.
