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. Foodies must try the Kimchi fries and the divine brisket tacos. (Alibi Staff, February 1, 2013)

Canteen Brewhouse picks up where the Il Vacino Vassar tap room left off. The canteen is spacious, and so is a shaded patio filled with picnic benches—a comfortable spot to enjoy the brew, regular live music and a casual menu. There’s no pizza here, but there are satisfying sandwiches. As always, the ingredients are top-notch, the microbrews are award-winning, and the homebrewed root beer float is a real treat.

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)

Bosque has expanded its robust brew selection to a taproom in the Nob Hill/University area. This location offers food and a sunny patio. The happy hour menu is a must, and the sandwiches are pretty great all around, especially the caprese and the Italian. (Alibi Staff, August 5, 2015)

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 Wednesday 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)

Beside 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)

Tractor draws the crowd by serving beer that’s come a long way since head brewer Dave Hargis took over. 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.) There is no kitchen, but Albuquerque’s best food trucks are almost always parked right outside. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

O'Niell's is comforting, a little cheeky and unapologetically Irish-American. The Juan Tabo location offers a gigantic patio and more floor space, but still features old favorites like the “Burger in Paradise” and fish and chips. And there’s plenty of live music at both locations. Build-your-own Mimosas make O’Niell’s a unique place to brunch. (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 11pm! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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.

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 is large, tasty and simple in a good way. The wood grilled trout with lobster sauce is 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, wasabi and green sesame seeds.
