A diverse array of drinkers stops by for a cold one every night at the Anodyne. No matter what social clique you belong to or what your beverage of choice is, the staff at the Anodyne make sure you get it fast. It only takes a few visits before the bartenders know what you want before you even ask for it. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

It only makes sense to order the steamed artichoke at the Artichoke Café. Slathered in lemon-caper oil and a raspberry vinaigrette, it makes a great starter before trying a more hefty order of grilled curried chicken or sliced steak. Once your lunch or dinner at the upscale Artichoke Café has concluded, you’ve got to adjourn to the sexy wine bar next door. The wine list is actually a leather-bound tome with a massive assortment of wines. Prices start at a decent $28 or $30 a bottle and zoom up into the upper stratospheres of frivolity, but you can also order select vintages by the half-bottle or glass. You'll love the front-facing "big city" windows, curvy wooden bar and comfortable seats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Boese Brothers Brewing doesn’t use any tricks or gimmicks to get people to come to their location because they don’t have to—people know they consistently serve good craft beer at a reasonable price. If you’re in the Downtown area and don’t want to walk into a crowded night club or bar to get a drink, Boese Brothers’ is the best place to go. With this variety of quality brews there is a beer for anyone. We recommend going on a Sunday night when there’s a comedy open mic. (Alibi Staff, February 22, 2017)

Technically speaking, a dive bar indicates an establishment of ill repute. Furthermore, while we're being technical, Burt's Tiki Lounge is a tiki bar. In any case, this new location for the old Albuquerque favorite is shiny, new and better than ever. The two-level bar not only is getting the best musical acts in the country, they remain showcasing the best local talent. Get whatever your mood requires: Chi Chi, Mai Tai or PBR, there’s no judgement here. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

This indoor-outdoor brewery is as cozy as it is fun. The bartenders are friendly and informative, and you’ll often find the owners working the taps with a smile. The identifying feature of the outdoor patio are metal towers stretching high above the building. Enjoy Asian-fusion food from their resident foodtruck Kitsune. (Alibi Staff, February 22, 2017)

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)

The New Mexico grass-fed Holy Cow burger comes on a brioche bun, while an ahi tuna sandwich, veggie club and dinner salads offer some more choices for bovine-averse diners. Beer and wine, plus shakes, malts and floats are available to complete the sacrament. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

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.

If you’re in need of a good conversation and a personalized sampling flight, Sidetrack is the best brewery to go to. The servers are personable and chatty, but if you’re feeling introspective or want a private conversation, take your drink and meal (the food is provided by local restaurants that they have on rotation) and head out to the gorgeous patio. The beer selection is always changing, so there’s always something new to try at this modern taproom. (Alibi Staff, February 22, 2017)

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)

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)

In the space of the old Blackbird Buvette is Zullo’s Bistro. Pop over to sip a glass of pinot noir and munch on a insalata caprese in their spacious back patio, complete with twinkle lights and overhead shades. Happy Hour is every day from 3-6pm or take advantage of their Wednesday couple’s night special: dinner for two including a whole bottle of wine for $40. Mamma mia, that’s a deal!

Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among readers, but the house-brewed beers are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the patio tables. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: Asian

3.77 rating (38 votes)
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, orange peel beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Wine flights are the best way to try different selections without going broke, and Savoy has some interesting choices. They pair perfectly with the restaurant’s stunning interiors and lovely New American dishes—stovetop clam bake, grilled peach salad and the house charcuterie plate. For dessert, there’s praline-chocolate torte, house-made blackberry-Chambord ice cream, cheese plates and, of course, a glass of La Spinetta Moscato d’Asti. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: Italian

3.95 rating (38 votes)
Trombino's Bistro Italiano has been an institution of family-style Italian dining in the Heights for more than 30 years. It houses an impressively fat menu that includes a full bar, espresso drinks and an ample wine list. The service is quicker than a Hollywood marriage, and the waitstaff seems particularly knowledgeable about the food and wines. Gravitate to the more rustic Italian fare—lemon-basil chicken salad, grilled homemade Italian sausage, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and manicotti--all are amply portioned and tasty.

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)
