Unique concert planned in October for towering Myrtle Beach-area hotel | Myrtle Beach Business

MYRTLE BEACH — Cliffhanger Productions plans to bring an electronic dance music, or EDM, concert to a hotel on South Ocean Boulevard where attendees will be able to enjoy the concert from the comfort of their hotel room.

DoubleTree Resort by Hilton in Myrtle Beach will host the ReVibe Wellness Retreat on Oct. 30-31, where 1,600 people are expected for the nearly sold-out event. The concert is being dubbed as “the first of its kind CDC-compliant vertical musical event on the East Coast.”

Michael Frits, general manager of the DoubleTree in Myrtle Beach, said the resort has seen an increase in revenue from their drive market cities, and so they’re targeting states that allow guests the option to drive in rather than fly, including North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, West Virginia, Alabama and Florida.

“We predict we will have attendees from as far north as New York and Massachusetts, as well,” Frits said.

Cliffhanger has a filed special events permit with Horry County. Frits said the resort has a permit that allows for amplified outdoor noise from 1 p.m. to midnight both Friday and Saturday. He said there shouldn’t be any concern about noise.

“Our oceanfront resort is great for hosting a vertical musical event since we have two towers with large connecting lawn spaces that will force sound to bounce off the hotel and be directed toward the ocean,” Frits said. 

Two stages will be set up to face the towers at the Doubletree. Owners of Cliffhanger bought out all rooms in both towers to ensure all visitors are specifically there for the concert.

The concert is scheduled to feature artists including: Buku, Mersiv, TRUTH, and many more, according to the announcement.

Cliffhanger Productions produced a similar event in Calgary called the Diesel Bird Hotel Music Festival in August, which sold out.

Frits said with this being the first concert of its kind at the resort and Myrtle Beach, it would be difficult to put a financial impact of the show.

“Bringing new visitors to Myrtle Beach is always a benefit of hosting a large event like this and we’re proud to help give a boost to South Carolina tourism,” Frits wrote. “At the resort, our guests will be able to purchase food from multiple dining options during the weekend, including three restaurants on-property, but from seven local food trucks as well.”

Ticket prices start at $375 per person and can be purchased at ReVibeRetreat.com, where attendees can view the weekend lineup and choose their preferred tower.

Frits said he hopes this will offer concert promoters a viable alternative to large crowds pre-COVID.

“We hope to do more vertical concerts in the future and see the potential of offering a safe alternative to large gatherings,” he said. “We take the safety of our guests and employees very serious

This bushwacker coffee tastes like a beach vacation

If the bushwacker is the unofficial frozen cocktail of the Alabama Gulf Coast, then the bushwacker coffee from Southern Shores Coffee is its unofficial brew.

“A lot of people down here call it their pre-game,” says Mark Lindsey, who, with his wife, Heather, started the Gulf Shores-based coffee company about seven years ago.

It took six months of trial and error, Mark says, to perfect the bushwacker flavor in roasted coffee form. He knew that if he could re-create the taste of Kahlua, chocolate, coconut, rum and ice cream, he would have a winning flavored coffee. A self-described purist, he was determined to do it by roasting those flavors into the beans.

“It was an idea that became an obsession until we nailed it,” he says. “It tastes spot-on.”

When they took it to the National Shrimp Festival one year, the Lindseys sold out of the bushwacker flavor. “That’s about the time we realized he had something,” Mark says.

The family moved to south Baldwin County from Ohio about 13 years ago. Mark was a manager in the copier industry, and Heather worked in telecommunications. When their daughter and son played soccer on school and travel teams, they made an adventure out of visiting as many coffee shops as possible in other cities.

“My daughter and I are coffee nuts,” says Mark. Once they started experimenting by roasting coffee for themselves at home, “it kinda grew.”

The operation moved to a Daphne warehouse, where they spent their nights and weekends roasting and packaging coffee.

Finally, the Lindseys decided it was time to open a brick-and-mortar coffee shop. They found the perfect spot in a small shopping center on 20th Avenue across from Hope’s Cheesecake.

“It’s a little off the beaten path,” says Mark. “I was hesitant. She wasn’t.”

By “she,” he means Heather. And Heather was correct. “After 26 years, she’s normally right,” he says with a laugh.

The 900-square-foot coffee shop opened in December of 2018. “I took a leap of faith opening this place,” says Mark, who enjoys meeting the locals and tourists who visit Southern Shores. He has a special fondness for the snowbirds who flock to the beach every winter.

Today, all the roasting is done in that location. “I’m always roasting something,” he says, including about 30 pounds of bushwacker-flavored coffee beans per day.

The Gulf Shores shop has done so well that the Lindseys opened a second location in Foley in May. Located on busy Highway 59, the Foley shop is much larger, with almost 3,000 square feet of space, a drive-thru that’s “big enough to handle boats,” and a pool table in the front. It also has a full kitchen.

Mark runs the original location in Gulf Shores, which is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Heather operates the Foley location, open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Both shops are closed on Sundays, but their

Limited menu options for appetizers and other selections will be available at other times of the day along with beverage service also to be provided on the ground floor. Room service is not provided.

The hotel includes an outdoor terrace on the fourth floor facing Sepulveda Boulevard where alcoholic beverages and limited food service such as appetizers will be offered to hotel guests. The hotel developers are asking for the outdoor terrace to be allowed to operate between 7 a.m. and 1 a.m. seven days a week.

The hotel applicant, MB Hotel Partners, LLC, is considering returning to the Planning Commission at a later date to classify the downstairs dining and upstairs terrace for use as a restaurant.

will provide 130 spaces. The retail/office building will be two stories with retail on the first floor and offices on the second.
