The cavernous, ground-floor counterpart to Anodyne, Sister is a space tailor-made for happenings. This is a perfect spot for enjoying a quiet dip into the vast draft beer selection with your comrades after work or boogying to the multitude of live bands that occupy its stage nearly every night. Make sure to try one of their fun and refreshing cocktails like the Ho Chi Minh coffee. (Alibi Staff, February 1, 2013)

Slate is on a quiet, blink-and-you-miss-it avenue between Fifth and Sixth Street, nestled right in the heart of the legal district. Like the space itself, the menu is polished and unintimidating. Don’t miss the ahi tuna sandwich (with gluten-free bread available!). It's all very affordable for its level of quality. There’s also a fabulous wine loft with the wines listed by style—“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”—not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This is Greek food that’s elegant, straightforward and absolutely delicious. White tile and recessed blue light create an island oasis that’s suggested rather than spelled out (no 8-foot murals here), and the service is friendly and attentive. The lentil soup is seasoned with just a whisper of aged balsamic vinegar, perfect with a toasty triangle of imported pita bread and a light Greek salad. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Plan on staying for a few hours here because after sampling these locally made spirits you won’t want to leave. Bloody Mary Brunch on Sundays (11am-2pm) is our favorite time to stop by. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2016)

Chow down on “New Mexican soul food” and wash it all down with American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup-winning brews. The Imperial cream ale is crisp and smooth, the milk stout is rich and creamy. Not a beer person? Go for Black Mesa wines or Santa Fe Cider Works hard ciders. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Wrung out from playing with the kiddos at the water park in Hotel Cascada? Head over to Altitude, a sports-themed hotel bar with sandwiches, salads and pizza. If lots of TVs with sports are what you’re looking for, this is the place. (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)

The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. Try their Bloody Mary bar on the weekends or their Sunday brunch. There’s plenty of fresh-pressed espresso to sip with it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include buckets of beer, scads of Scotches, and Saturday and Sunday brunch with, of course, live Celtic music. They also serve a perfectly rationed hot toddy. Order one in the colder months and sip on it by the fireplace—you won’t be disappointed. Or go for a perfectly poured Guinness during the hotter months. They’ll even decorate the head with a nifty little shamrock! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You love Yanni's. So do we. Their adjoined Lemoni Bar seats about 85 people and is open for lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Painted natural tones and accented with elegant lighting, the lounge provides a subtle contrast to the bright, light and airy dining rooms at Yanni's. It’s an ideal place for pre- or post-movie cocktails and snacks, or more substantial cuisine. Their green chile Bloody Mary will certainly boost your brunch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Downstairs, the cellar bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks, music and daily specials including the $9 beer, brat and pretzel every Thursday. The happy hour menu, wines by the glass and prices are the best around. Give the brunch a try, and while you’re at it, try a Taos Mule from the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Touted as New Mexico’s largest restaurant, the North Valley’s El Pinto is best known for its gorgeous, shady environment (perennially Best Patio in our restaurant polls) and award-winning jarred salsa. Try it for margaritas, brunch and a little flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If you’re cruising through Old Town, look no further than this patio dining restaurant, pleasantly located beneath a spreading elm tree on the east side of Old Town. Fantastic hamburgers, Mexican pizzas and street tacos all await your jaded palate, and there’s plenty of local beer on tap to wash them down with. Finally, a new reason for locals to hit the plaza.

This casual, reasonably priced eatery is located just to the northwest of the Sheraton Old Town off Rio Grande. Regular live jazz music, two patios and a spacious front specialty wine and gift shop bring wine festival flair to thirsty Burqueños year-round, while the menu is built around the Vineyard's signature wines.

Fritz Allen opened the Corrales Bistro Brewery next door to his Hanselmann Pottery shop in the Corrales Artisan Center. The menu is full of appetizers, salads, wraps, sandwiches and burgers. Roasted garlic and feta bread dippers are replete with crumbled feta, olive tapenade, balsamic dipping sauce and toasted pita. Hand-cut fries and an assortment of sides complete the mix, with good brews to wash it all down. Stop by for the almost-daily live music and you’ll feel right at home.

At Blades, the mood is jovial and boisterous, in keeping with the neighborhood bistro feeling to which its aspires. A stainless-steel counter at one end extends the feeling of openness by offering a view into the kitchen, while across the dining area is a beautifully crafted hardwood bar. On the short, dinner-only menu, there’s an eclectic mix of appetizers (roasted beets with toasted goat cheese and balsamic glaze), European-style entrées (paella), and several salad and soup options, all beautifully presented.
