Fat Harold's Beach Club


You can’t blend in with the locals until you can dance like them, and in Lowcountry that means learning the shag. This is one of the best places to get in step. The king of shag and founder of this club, Harold Bessent, wouldn’t have it any other way. The Society of Stranders (SOS), a group devoted to the shag, holds events here, and the calendar is chockablock with dancing lessons—some of them free—and a revolving roster of DJs. Also check out the sister club, Harold’s on the Ocean.
