New Mexico Nightlife

  • Downtown

    Albuquerque Nightlife

    Burt's has been a staple on the downtown scene for years now. You can catch a whole bunch of live bands, mostly alternative and a bit of everything in between. This is a pretty chill place and it's at it's most chillest in between 9:30 and 10:30 PM. This is before the crowds come in and the place gets bumper to bumper. The inside is very much how...

  • Nob Hill

    Albuquerque Nightlife

    It's hard to pick a theme for this place. Yes it's a nightclub. Yes it's a cigar bar. Yes it's for people watching. And yes, there's live music at select times. It's Imbibe! One of my new favorite places to chill with a friend or two. I never showed much Nob Hill until this year. Since it's near the University of New Mexico, Nob Hill tends to...

  • Heights Scene

    Albuquerque Nightlife

    Graham Central Station is a unique club with four different venues in the same building. The biggest room is "Diamonds and Denim," featuring country music. The next biggest room is "South Beach," featuring hiphop and salsa. If you are into the 60s and 70s music, go to "Bellbottoms. " If you have aspirations of being a singing star, go to "Alley...

  • Casinos

    Albuquerque Nightlife

    The casinos are so much fun and are open 24 hours a day. Late at night, payouts increase on some tables. My favorite casino is Santa Ana Star. The atmosphere here is so friendly, and they don't cheat like other casinos in the area.

  • The KiMo Theatre

    The KiMo Theatre was originally a movie palace of the ornate style that was common in the United States during the 1920s. (KiMo comes from the Tiwa Indian language, and means "mountain lion"). Constructed in 1927, the theater was built by entrepreneur Oreste Bachechi and designed by Carl Boller of the Boller Brothers architectural firm. The...

  • The Santa Fe Opera

    Founded in 1956 as the Opera Association of New Mexico, the Santa Fe Opera is known for introducing new operas and the quality of its productions of standard operatic repertoires. Since its inception, the Santa Fe Opera has staged more than 40 American and 11 international premiers, and has commissioned nine new operas.Productions of operas were...

  • Fancy Place in Truth or Consequences

    This place may not be considered fancy in New York or Paris but it is for New Mexico. Decor is nice with bright reds and dark wood. They have a very good selection of wines ranging from the inexpensive to the very expensive. I had a rum and coke and they did not skimp on the rum. The waitresses were very nice but did not want their picture on the...

  • Good Beer, Better Waitresses in Las...

    Hooters is famous for their wings, a good selection of beer, and their cute women in bright orange short shorts and Hooters T-shirts. Casual.

  • Sports Bar in Las Cruces

    In addition to a restaurant, Cattlemen's has a small lounge with TV sets showing sports and some tables. They dwere generous enough with the rum for my rum and coke. The clientele seemed to be mostly locals, and it was a little hard to get service. Casual is the norm.

  • Historic Bar in Cloudcroft

    The Western Bar is located next to the Cloudcroft Hotel in the center of the Burro Street Historic District. It looked like a typical bar, with some neon, beer posters, sports posters, etc. When, I was there the place was very busy and service was slow. Seemed popular with the bikers.They also serve Mexican and American food and have Lunch specials...

  • Drink, Watch Sports, Meet People in...

    The Watering Hole is a small club with TVs for watching sports, light food, and good drinks. It is in the same building as the Red Barn Steakhouse and the same parking area as the motel where I was staying. The waitress changed the channel at the request of some patrons so you can watch what you want. When she poured my rum and coke she was...

  • Not a whole lot to do on Coal Street

    Good place to shoot pool. This friendly bar located the old downtown section of Gallup. It?s fun place to hang out on the Saturday night.

  • The American Bar in Gallup, New Mexico

    We meet friendly locals. Even we know that we?re from the out of town. We feel welcome from the locals people.

  • Have some fun at night.

    Nice place to have some drink and have some fun playing pool here. the people here so friendly. Make sure that you're not under 21 and you carry you passport or ID card with you, if not they will not let you in!!!

  • While visiting New Mexico I...

    While visiting New Mexico I happened upon this place. It is quite personal and very cozy. If you are with someone special or just out with friends you will feel at home here. There is a very nice bar and some tables and chairs in the middle of the room but all along the walls are big comfy couches to lounge on.I can guarentee that if you visit...

  • Two Locations:1. Downtown...

    Two Locations:1. Downtown Albuquerque is great on Sat. nights. The bars are near the financial section of town just past UNM. Banna Joes and about six other bars (which I can't remember the name of) are located in a three block area. They are all within walking distance of eachother and offer a variety of atmospheres.Also on Sat. nights it's kool...

  • Watching sunset on the roof...

    Watching sunset on the roof top bar of La Fonda Hotel.With the Christo de Sangre mountains behind you turning beautiful colors while the sun sets is incredible. The best view for a romantic start of the evening. Dress warm, even when I was there in June, it was pretty cool.

  • If you're looking for a club...

    If you're looking for a club atmosphere, you should probably check out the clubs in El Paso, Texas (50 miles south of Las Cruces on the border with Mexico). However, a 'must see' in this area is the western-style Las Cruces, 'Rodeo USA' is the place to experience it. If you haven't seen a mirrored saddle turning from the ceiling instead...

  • Most of the clubs in Las...

    Most of the clubs in Las Cruces are western...for those that don't like country music, the atmosphere may not be for you (although at Rodeo USA club, there is a sequined western saddle that rotates like a disco ball - pretty amusing!). For a more traditional club scene, check out the nightlife just down highway I-10 in El Paso.I personally prefer...
