The food is pretty standard bar fare with burgers and the like. But hey, you can have a delicious Pickleback (whiskey and pickle juice) to wash it down. Then hop out onto the dance floor, cheer on the neon go-go dancers and boogie. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

Everyone’s a little Irish at this friendly place! The whole joint smells wonderfully like hot cereal, and the brewery tanks are visible from the eating area. Try any of the friend taps with other local brews or taste one of Quarter Celtic’s standards like the Crimson Lass or Quarter porter. We especially recommend their perfect fish and chips paired with a pint o’ the Rye’t Side of Dublin. Sláinte! (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2016)

The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes, and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gecko’s expanded with a popular Northeast Heights location that’s housed in a building that looks like a jukebox, for some reason. Even though it’s clear across town, you’ll still probably bump into folks you know as you’re sipping a wicked Bloody Mary and enjoying tidbits from the affordably priced tapas menu.

Rough-hewn wood planks lead you into this nautically-themed steak and seafood restaurant, which doesn’t start seating for dinner until 5pm. Luckily, happy hour begins at 4pm. Have a Lady Godiva hot cocktail and a baker's dozen of topless oysters in the bar while you wait. Then dive into creamy clam chowder, butter-sweet Australian lobster tail and Ranchero center-cut top sirloin. There's plenty of key lime pie in the icebox and Phil Collins on the speakers.

Head brewer Andrew Krosche has a pint of potion just for you. This local brewery and restaurant has won a number of Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup awards. The food is approachable American stuff that, coincidentally, goes pretty damn well with beer. Try the Sleeping Dog stout or the Class VI Golden lager (a gold metal-winner). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

At first glance, The Fox and Hound is your typical sports bar: hip-hop music blasting, TVs blaring and pretty waitresses bustling. But one glance at the extensive menu is all it takes to clue you in that it is a fine restaurant as well. Unlike the usual fried piece of beer sponge that you get at most sports bars, the menu offers more elegant dishes like blackened mahi-mahi. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

Gecko’s has a killer patio in a corner of Nob Hill that’s perfect for people-watching. Set directly between La Montañita Co-op and Scalo, you’ll be sure to bump into folks you know as you’re sipping a cocktail and enjoying tidbits from the affordably-priced tapas menu. On Mondays the wings are 50 cents each, and on Wednesdays after 6pm you can get a cheeseburger for $5.50. Watch some sports, eat a burger and enjoy a seasonal ale. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Head to Nob Hill for one of Head Brewer Ken Wimmer’s tasty brews such as the Tipsy Cow, Dad Joke or An Irish Tan. This joint has 40 local taps and savory pub grub like the Brew Dog with sauerkraut and a Pub-B-Q quesadilla with smoked brisket and melted cheddar jack. (Alibi Staff, August 10, 2017)

Imbibe is an über-trendy cigar lounge with backlit smoke-tendril art and contemporary seating. There are hordes of annoying knockoff-clad barflies as far as the eye can see, but the humidor is well-stocked and well-attended by knowledgeable staff, and there’s a rooftop deck (if you can make it up there; there’s always a line). Get there early for the best seats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Besides the late-night menus and 20-odd house-brewed beers, Kelly's has an enormous, dog-friendly patio that somehow manages to be packed to the elbows, lively and laid-back all at the same time. Snag a spot by the rails for the best people-watching in Nob Hill. The food is decidedly geared toward the bar crowd (the kitchen stays open until 11pm, but food isn’t the strength here), with shades of cow, ostrich, turkey, buffalo or veggie on the burger menu. Get one with a side of sweet potato fries. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If often too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd is what you’re searching for, look no further. All the dude-bros from UNM will be happy to hang out with you and get rowdy. Pair your Long Island iced teas with daily specials like Monday $1 tacos. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

If you like your comfort food with a gourmet twist, it’s here. Nob Hill Bar & Grill boasts meatloaf (crowned with smoked bacon) and burgers (American kobe). The appetizers and classic cocktails alone are worth the visit. Cheese sticks encrusted in nuts and miso-seared ahi tuna on wontons go down swimmingly (Did we mention the saltwater aquarium?) with a signature cocktail or an organic ale. A few vegetarian entrées, decent hours, a full bar, and a comfy but chic atmosphere make Nob Hill Bar & Grill a mainstay in the neighborhood. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
