Built originally as a speakeasy during the prohibition era, the historic Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant has been an eating and drinking establishment since 1927. The restaurant’s rich history is filled with days of illegal bootlegging alcohol to quench the thirst of silent movie stars and politicians from all over the bay area. The Distillery is most well known for their resident ghost “the blue lady” having been featured on the NBC’s hit series Unsolved Mysteries. The restaurant is perched 150 feet above the ocean overlooking the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and has one of the best views in Northern California. Guests can bask in the sunshine or curl up in a blanket next to a fire pit with their dog and pass the day away.
