Landers San Clemente
Landers is influenced by the coastal lifestyle by way of its seaside location, but also features desert elements inspired by the Joshua Tree region. The restaurant got its name because owner Chance Owen spent over the years in the community of "Landers," a small, dreamy, laid back unincorporated town in the high desert near Joshua Tree.
The San Clemente location of Landers is set in a historic, Spanish-style building that was originally an aquarium -- but has since transformed into this western-themed restaurant and bar.
The interior features design details offering a sense of dry coziness, with dark wood beams exposed in a large, high-ceilinged circular room with a wraparound bar and a collection of cozy booths. There's also a sizable outdoor patio featuring beautiful seaside views.
Expect a fun and entertaining atmosphere with tasty bites and custom-crafted signature cocktails -- and even some retail shopping opportunities.
