City of Myrtle Beach plans to buy, demolish 'The Bunny Ranch'

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – An infamous Myrtle Beach icon is expected to meet its end next month: The Bunny Ranch will likely be demolished in September once the City of Myrtle Beach acquires the land on which the now-closed strip club sits.

At Tuesday’s meeting, the City Council approved a resolution to accept the deed for the property at the corner of U.S. 501 and Third Avenue South as part of a real estate swap.

The Bunny Ranch was on sale for quite some time before being purchased by Sea Captain’s Investors, the same company which owns its namesake, Sea Captain’s House restaurant on Ocean Boulevard.

Right next to that restaurant is an alleyway which the city currently owns, but has no need for. So, the city council is opting to swap properties, giving Sea Captain's the alleyway and taking over the Bunny Ranch property. The closing on the land transfer is set for August 28th.

In an update on Facebook, the Myrtle Beach City Government stated the plans are to demolish the structure, most likely in September.

The triangular plot of land is currently in one of the unincorporated “doughnut holes” surrounded by the city, but future annexation into Myrtle Beach is expected, government officials stated.

The Bunny Ranch was one of several adult businesses that closed last year following an investigation into nuisance violations by the Horry County Solicitor's Office.
