Nitelife Celebrations: Your Destination for Spring Break | Visit
Myrtle Beach is one of the nation’s premier spring break destinations. Beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants, specialty shops and unique attractions combine to provide visitors with the most memorable days and unforgettable nights of their vacation.
Nightlife is a huge draw for tourists, and a Myrtle Beach business has been hosting the party for over 20 years as the ultimate Myrtle Beach entertainment spot.
Celebrations Nitelife, headquartered in The Avenue on Broadway at the Beach, includes the Malibu Surf Bar, The Patio, and Oz The Experience.
This unique atmosphere allows customers to pay for a blanket that grants access to both clubs, making Celebrations Nitelife the ultimate bar hopping experience.
When asked how Celebrations Nitelife has thrived for 20+ years, Marketing Director Alyssa Petitto said, “The parties have gotten bigger and better over the years.”
One of the driving forces behind the success of Celebrations Nitelife is that each of the clubs is a different atmosphere and has their own unique fun factor.
The Malibu Surf Bar mixes the laid back beach vibe, with elaborate lighting and stunning music technology to bring you the biggest indoor beach party. DJ Gino, with the help of DJ Comix and DJ Jason, rocks the dance floor with the hottest hits and party classics.
The Patio at Malibu’s is a great place to hang out and listen to live music while providing an alternative to the dance floor, but it still allows patrons to be part of the fun frenzy found at the Malibu Surf Bar.
Oz The Experience is the newest member of the Celebrations Nitelife family, connected to the Surf Bar in Malibu. The venue offers cutting-edge sound, lighting and video, with video walls, bar tops, and entryways that transform before your eyes. Each night presents a different thematic look, feel and design. One night, you will dance under the lights of Paris and the next, around the rings of Saturn, a truly extraordinary experience.
In Oz, resident mix master DJ Eyecon mixes current hits, house and mainstream music into the hottest beats and remixes from East Coast clubs for an exhilarating dance experience.
“We are known as the only dance club in Myrtle Beach,” said Petitto.
Another distinct feature of Celebrations Nitelife is that all clubs offer VIP sections where you can see and be seen. These sections are ideal for small and large groups or groups celebrating a special event.
Oz The Experience offers a membership to the Mile High Club, located upstairs at the club’s Absolut Bar. For an annual membership fee of $ 25, club members receive free admission every night until 11 p.m., an Oz Mile High Club t-shirt, a signature drink served in a Mile High Club souvenir mug, your name on the Oz video walls at your registration party, A large pizza with a $ 10 topping at Oz, discounted VIP sections and $ 10 souvenir mug refills.
While the clubs offer special events throughout the year, the party is really building up for Spring Break. Celebrations Nitelife is home to Myrtle Beach Spring Break!
