Santa Fe Nightlife

Who says Santa Fe doesn’t have a nightlife???



Here is a guide to know where to go in the City Different for a late night drink (or an afternoon pick me up for that matter!)


Secreto Lounge  Secreto is located in the historical Hotel St. Francis and features Vintage Cocktails alongside Market Fresh Creations from the local Farmer’s Market.  A creative and unique atmosphere complimented by a top notch staff.   This is where you find me every night serving drinks and telling stories!


Anasazi Lounge is located in the Inn of the Anasazi and is now the only bar in downtown Santa Fe without a TV.  Excellent service and great drinks have been a constant at the Anasazi for nearly 20 years.  


The High Note (at Coyote Cafe) .  Santa Fe’s Hot new ultra lounge featuring molecular mixing techniques, fire shows, and a little flair thrown in for fun.  Weekend music and dancing as well!


Del Charro is a new version of an old time saloon.  It hosts a high energy crowd from Happy Hour til close.  Good drink and cheap food, this is where you will find the service industry crowd when we get off work.


La Fonda, the Hotel at the End of the Trail, is a fantastic place to hear great music and have a drink.  Locals gather here for two stepping and Texas swing dancing.  This is for the young and old alike.   A true Santa Fe experience not to be missed.  Don’t forget your boots!


El Farol, on Canyon Road, is another hopping hotspot where locals go to meet for a drink and dance.  Music varies nightly from salsa to rock.  Drinks are heavily poured, and it’s a great place to meet up, hook up, or just see the diversity of Santa Fe



Three bars, two corners.  It’s a vortex that will change your life!!!!!!

 Matador is one of my favorite bars in town.  Tucked away under Galesteo and W. San Francisco Streets, it is a seedy little dive cranking some crazy combinations of punk, classic country, psychobilly, and alternative. Once one of Santa Fe’s speakeasies, it is dark, and incredible for those of us who love the days of old. 

Evangelo’s: Once a Tiki bar, Evangelo’s is host to great music and neighborhood fun.  This place, if you look very closely, you will recognize from some of the movies shot  in and around Santa Fe.  Great music in the afternoon and evenings every weekend.  By the way, This bar was used in many movies over the years like Crazy Heart!

The Underground: Located in the basement of Evangelo’s, The Undergraound is Santa Fe’s other dive and ya never know what you might see.  Be sure to take a Sharpie with you and sign the ceiling.  Great energy, great music, and fuill drinks.
