Myrtle Beach, S.C. (June 21, 2022) – The Hangout, an Alabama-based company, has opened a new high-energy restaurant in Myrtle Beach. The 40,000-square-foot interactive dining and entertainment venue is the second Hangout location for the company, with the first located in Gulf Shores, AL. LHWH was given mission-critical marketing responsibilities to help introduce the attraction to a highly competitive market during the height of the tourism season.
Featuring a unique mix of high energy dining, dancing on tables and outdoor live music, The Hangout is unlike any other attraction in the market.
