Drive down Route 66 and you're bound to see the countless historic motels that have gone by the wayside in one way or another. El Vado Motor Court Motel refused to be one of them, and holy shit have they had a comeuppance. Originally opening their doors in 1937, shifting through several owners and narrowly avoiding demolition, the city of Albuquerque stepped in knowing there was an opportunity for something unique. Come by their grand re-opening on Friday, July 20 from 6 to 10pm of the historic motel with the opening ceremony beginning at 8:30pm. The new spaces are apartments, guest rooms, event space, shops and restaurant pods. The small restaurant spaces are offered to up-and-coming restauranteurs to get their footing in the industry. No shortage of beer, food, giveaways, room tours, shopping, live music and more, this space is a new beginning and much needed rehab for the city. El Vado promises to “STAY UNIQUE.”
