SkyWheel Myrtle Beach and Margaritaville Announce Plans to Open Entertainment and Dining Venue ...
January 4, 2011, Myrtle Beach, S.C.
– Representatives from SkyWheel Myrtle Beach and Margaritaville have announced plans to open an observation wheel and restaurant and retail shop, LandShark Bar & Grill and LandShark Surfshack, in Myrtle Beach, S.C. in May 2011.
The SkyWheel Myrtle Beach will stand 200 feet above the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and serve as the anchor attraction to the new 1.2 mile Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade. SkyWheel Myrtle Beach will be the first observation wheel of its kind in the United States; the second in North America and the largest wheel of any kind east of the Mississippi River.
“We are very excited about the new joint venture with LandShark Bar & Grill and LandShark Surfshack we have in Myrtle Beach,” said David Busker, CEO of Koch Development, developer of SkyWheel Myrtle Beach. “LandShark Bar & Grill is the perfect dining complement to the SkyWheel experience and we look forward to bringing this concept to the oceanfront boardwalk in Myrtle Beach.”
Brought to you by your friends at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, LandShark Bar & Grill will be located on the new oceanfront Boardwalk next to the awe inspiring SkyWheel. Inspired by the great “beach joints” that once dotted the Atlantic coast, LandShark Bar & Grill will be the perfect blend of ocean breezes, boardwalk action, spectacular views, great food, generous drinks, your favorite beach tunes and good old fashion fun. The LandShark Surfshack will offer an array of merchandise themed around the popular beer brand, LandShark Lager, as well as a selection of Sky Wheel souvenirs. LandShark’s laid back atmosphere, casual dining, bar and entertainment will soon be a favorite with both tourists and the Grand Strand’s local residents.
“We love Myrtle Beach and are thrilled to bring our new concept LandShark Bar and Grill to this exciting project,” said Tamara Baldanza, Director of Marketing for Margaritaville Hospitality Group. “The beach location will be the perfect spot to, take a ride on the new SkyWheel, grab a bite to eat, listen to some music and hang out for a while.”
St. Louis-based developer Koch Development and Pacific Development chose Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for this joint venture because of the new Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade, which has its northern end near the SkyWheel Myrtle Beach site.
