The Library began as a concept bar a few years ago in Tempe, Ariz., catering to the lunch and dinner crowd, transforming in the later hours of the evening into a nightclub. The food is pretty standard bar fare with burgers and the like—but at least in this case you’ll be served by Catholic schoolgirl-attired waitresses, who, at prescribed times during the night, will dance on the bar mere inches from your taco plate.

Where else in town can you get braggot? Bad Ass specializes in big brews, and even its lighter offerings are pretty intense. Pretty much anything you get here is for slow sipping. Pints are $4, and the congenial bartenders will be happy to pour you 5-ounce samples (a buck apiece) that might include a Zombie IPA, a Belgian, a chocolate beer, an oatmeal stout, a coffee beer and a Scottish ale. They also offer sub sandwiches for the hungry tippler! (Alibi Staff, May 20, 2011)

Gecko’s has expanded with a popular Northeast Heights location—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.

Il Vicino’s taproom has reopened with a vengeance at its new location. There is now plenty of room (both to sit and park), and you can chow on a sandwich or a big hot pretzel while you sip your Wet Mountain IPA. (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2011)

Jeff Erway presents a variety of beer styles brewed right on the premises, one of which will almost certainly fill 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)

Gecko’s tapas won our readers’ hearts in BoBR 2014, but it isn’t just the tapas that draw in a familiar and friendly crowd. On Mondays the burgers are all $5 each and come with fries or salad. Watch some sports, eat a burger and enjoy a seasonal ale. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Besides the late-night menus (the kitchen stays open until 11 p.m., but food isn’t the strength here) and 20-odd house-brewed beers (the Best Beer Selection, according to 2007’s BoB Restaurants poll), 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. Get the sweet potato fries. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Tractor draws the crowd by serving beer that’s come a long way since head brewer Dave Hargis took over more than a year ago. Today’s Tractor offers up nine taps, with five constants (IPA, red, honey wheat, pale ale and stout) and four rotating taps. The doppelbock is excellent, and Tractor seems to excel at the bock styles (it took first place at the 2011 Santa Fe’s BockFest). Tractor plans to introduce live music in the near future. There is no kitchen, but Albuquerque’s best food trucks are almost always parked right outside. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

Best of Burque 2009 (Best Lesbian Bar): Exhale has live entertainment, a smokin' dance floor, naughty drinks and jalapeño poppers. Outside of a planet with pink clouds and rivers of chocolate, populated solely by lovely lesbian ladies, what more could a girl ask for? (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

O'Niell's Pub is back—and serves food until midnight on weekdays! A few years after being ousted from its nearly decade-long home in Nob Hill, O'Niell's Pub has migrated east up Central and reopened in a new (but reassuringly familiar) space. All the old standouts like fish and chips and the “Burger in Paradise” are still here and as good as they ever were. Tractor Brewing's O'Niell's Irish Red is a perfectly balanced beer drunk by itself or with everything from chicken wings to chocolate cake. They're comforting, a little cheeky and unapologetically Irish-American. Just like O'Niell's Pub. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Look beyond the marketing gimmick of the poor, sweaty guy asphyxiating on the Central median, face concealed behind a sequined Mexican wrestling mask. Either chow down inside the colorful restaurant (try the fresh peanut salsa and horchata ) or have items from its extensive menu delivered directly to your door. Sundays feature a spectacular display of tableside live mariachi music. (Be forewarned: If you know a little Spanish, your interactions with the staff will go much more smoothly.) Open ’til 11 p.m.!

In the front, it's a standard restaurant laid out with a small bar and big window facing the street. Travel a short way through a blacklit hall and enter the kind of divey neighborhood hangout this city needs more of, complete with TVs, a jukebox, a ping-pong table, air hockey and arcade games. Though the entire menu is available no matter where you choose to spend your time, you can't go wrong with the twisty-crust pizza. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

We still miss Jack’s, but its copper-ceilinged replacement has been around long enough to become an institution itself. The rambly old building has plenty of dark corners to hide in as you make your way through the extensive beer menu, and if the weather’s nice, an inviting patio area to scarf down a brick-oven cooked pizza in the fresh Spring breeze. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

If you’re in the Uptown Mall and in need of a bite to eat, and perhaps an elephant safari, Elephant Bar might be your ticket. OK, so the elephants aren’t real, and you can’t ride on them, but the large dining room is full of carvings and sculptures of them, even more than palm trees. The food is Americanized Asian mishmash, with good salads and seafood. An organic green salad with walnuts and creamy gorgonzola was big and good, simple in a good way. The wood grilled trout with lobster sauce was pure joy to eat. Even better is the ahi tuna salad, available as both entrée and appetizer sized, which consists of slices of seared fish atop a pile of seaweed and salad greens, with pickled ginger and wasabi—and green sesame seeds.
