Grab one of the many sampler trays from the deli while unwinding with a pint of your favorite locally crafted beer at this cavernous bar, deli and gallery. We recommend the Stacious and Fiction. (Alibi Staff, February 3, 2017)

If you’re in the mood to stay up with the twinkling stars and experience how wild Downtown can get, put on your tallest stilettos and totter over to Effex. This popular gay nightclub features go-go dancers, badass DJs, a rooftop bar and tons of people with whom you can get your groove on. Grab a drink from one of multiple bar areas and shake that thang.

Watch a movie, drink some beer and enjoy a meal at this hybrid theater. While the forgettable in-house beers—actually made by the company—aren’t fulfilling, the theater makes up for it with the loaded fries, tasty pizzas and the silent, yet still friendly, servers. (Alibi Staff, February 3, 2017)

Jeff Erway presents a variety of beer styles brewed right on the premises, one of which will almost certainly fulfill your specific craving. In addition to the cold taps, one or two of the beers are often available woody and cellar-temperature from the cask. As you sip, play a game of pool upstairs, scratch under your well-behaved pet’s collar and chat with the always-friendly fellow beer-lovers. (Alibi Staff, January 20, 2011)

In Albuquerque there are a handful of rocking places to rock, but when it comes to really rocking out to some sweet rocking rock, be it shredding, noodling, head banging or self-conscious toe-tapping, the Launchpad is where the magic happens. Grab a cocktail or a beer from the bar, head upstairs and enjoy the show. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Pray your spirit guide takes you here because Left Turn Distillery offers a heavenly selection. Albuquerque's first distillery offers several different spirits including gin, whiskey, rum and vodka, all created with handmade equipment. Take advantage of their Monday through Friday happy hour—but we recommend going for their Sunday Bloody Sunday Bloody Mary bar. (Alibi Staff, February 23, 2017)

What goes better with a cold Budweiser and fresh chicharrones from Bandido Mexican Food than some rousing music? This joint has a variety of genres to pull in anyone. Karaoke? Down some liquid courage, and grab the mike on Wednesdays. Want that Latin polka feel? Dance to the musico banda on Fridays. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Aside from the obvious priority of providing a fine selection of local beers, the customer service is top-notch. We prefer the malty, bready pale ale, the Horned Honey Pale. Make sure to keep up to date on their seasonal beers like the summer 2017 Sour Cherry wit or Flanders red ale. (Alibi Staff, February 23, 2017)

If twerking contests, 18-year-olds and urban dance music is your bag, well, enjoy. Drink some vodka (if you’re over 21), get sweaty on the dance floor with a stranger, and gaze up at the go-go dancers in boots with the fur (with the fur) as they get everybody amped up and ready to drop it like it’s hawt.

After you spank all your bowling buddies with a turkey for the win, head into Dewar’s Pub to celebrate your excellent ball-handling skills. Share a pitcher with your pals, munch on some homemade pub grub, and go hog wild with the karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

After admiring the expanded interior and hip industrial-style lighting, have an award-winning beer or three and wobble on over to whatever food truck is there (which you can find on their website). While the trucks stay until about 10pm, Marble is open ‘til midnight every night except Sunday. Listen to some live bands on the community patio every Saturday night, or grab a growler, six-pack or keg to go if you want to avoid the loyal following this Albuquerque favorite has gathered.

With sometimes too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd, it’s usually best to avoid this place on the weekends. But stop in for a late lunch or weeknight burger and a beer, and you’ll get a different experience. The beef here is grass-fed, New Mexico-grown, and steroid- and antibiotic-free, and the cooks at Monte Vista deserve praise for what they do with it. The freshly ground burgers are juicy and big, the chile cheese fries hit the spot, and the beef skewers are tender and one of the best deals on cow in town. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

This brewery has quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties like New Orleans-style gumbo and the delicious marriage of chicken and waffles. It’s just the place to take your corn-bread-and-Frito-pie-craving friends while still getting your craft beer fix. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Another brewery jostles for recognition in the crowded Albuquerque market place. This one, an expansion of a Portland, Ore. outfit, offers a tastefully appointed and classy dining area and a menu of pub-inspired gastro-delights like fish and chips, burgers and the like. As far as beer is concerned, check out the oatmeal stout or the Ghost Train IPA. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2014)

Everyone’s a little Irish at this friendly place! Bring the kiddies, bring your grandpa—everyone else does (which means it can get a little crowded and noisy, but we love it anyway). The whole joint smells wonderfully like hot cereal and the brewery tanks are visible from the eating area. We recommend the perfect fish and chips paired with a pint o’ the Rye’t Side of Dublin. Sláinte! (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2016)

Stop by at lunchtime for a creative craft beer like their Blackberry hefeweizen and to play some Super Mario Bros like the professional you are. Or hang out and dine on something tasty from a local food truck and listen to some live jams. Or if you just got off the night shift, head over at 7am on a Saturday for breakfast and beer.

Rio Bravo Brewing Company’s motto is, “Live bold!” So go courageously into that good brewery, and open yourself up to the possibilities of the Duke City pils, La Luz lager or a Level 3 IPA. Pair your brew with something fresh from one of the rotating food trucks that visit, and dance the night away to the slick tunes brought by live musicians. (Alibi Staff, October 26, 2015)

Nestled inside the MCM Elegante Hotel is the Sandia Springs Lounge. Whether you’re staying at the hotel or just in the neighborhood, pop in for happy hour drink specials, sports on big screen TVs and a burger from the limited menu. You might even get to strike up a conversation with an out-of-towner and get their perspective on this ol’ Dirt City. (Alibi Staff, September 3, 2010)

Santa Fe Brewing Co. has made its home at Green Jeans Farmery. You can stay and have a beer or two, or take a growler or six-pack to go. That yellow can with the zia symbol is iconic and eye-catching anywhere. With a choice of over 25 beers on tap and the option to bring food in from other establishments, it’s hard to leave this beautiful building. (Alibi Staff, February 26, 2016)
