CLOSED – Portuguese Bend Distillery

Portuguese Bend Distillery is the name of Long Beach’s first distillery, which also has a bar, restaurant and bottling plant in a space that marries modern touches with nods to the 1920s and 30s.

Portuguese Bend pays homage to classic cocktails and dishes made with local ingredients and inspired by early American cuisine. Careful studies of menus around the country to culminate a menu that inspires and pleases customers, with a lot of love and hint of nostalgia. Nearly a century ago, Portuguese Bend was known for being an area along the Palos Verdes Peninsula where illegal liquor was dropped off during Prohibition.
