2218 E Cliff Dr, Santa Cruz, CA, United States
One of the finest places to hear live music, enjoy expertly crafted drinks, and hang with the locals in town. Situated at the mouth of the Santa Cruz Harbor, you'll feel as though you're out to sea on the top floor of this bar and restaurant. Hope for clear skies, because the view from the top deck of the Nest, where weekly music will be banging, is an overlook of the Pacific and the setting sun. Wednesday night there are half off appetizers and cocktails.
