Nelson's at Terranea

6610 Palos Verdes Drive S
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275
Best Of
If gazing at the ocean is your bag, you’ll find plenty of places to do it in SoCal. But the best place to do it in SoCal while drinking is Nelson’s at Terranea, in beautiful Palos Verdes. Perched atop the Palos Verdes cliffs, Nelson's is one of the most removed places in all of Los Angeles County. From the bar you can look out at Catalina Island while sipping a cucumber margarita and downing crabcake sliders.
