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 makes 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)

Albuquerque NM 87102

2.83 rating (6 votes)
Located behind JC’s New York Pizza Department, this tap room has 28 revolving taps from New Mexico breweries, national breweries and beer brewed on site. The staff is always friendly and the relaxed atmosphere is sure to cure any post-work stress. Open every day at 4pm. (Alibi Staff, December 17, 2014)

Mon-Sat: 9pm-2am Sun: 8pm-12am (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Bar

4.14 rating (26 votes)
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, however rough around the edges it may be, we think Burt's is one of the city's finest places to wet one's whistle. Plus, the bartenders make an excellent Mai Tai.

Marble Brewery

111 Marble Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-2739

Mon-Sat 1pm-12pm Sun 1pm-10:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

3.46 rating (109 votes)
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 till about 10, Marble is open ‘til midnight every night except Sunday. Listen to some live bands 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.

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)

Albuquerque NM 87102

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)

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

Il Vicino

11225 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 271-0882
www.ilvicino.com
Sun-Thurs: 11am-10pm Fri-Sat: 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

3.61 rating (42 votes)
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)

Savoy Wine Bar & Grill

10601 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.17 rating (82 votes)
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)

Trombino's Bistro Italiano

5415 Academy Rd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-5974
www.bistroitaliano.com
Mon-Thurs: 4pm-10pm Fri: 4pm-10:30pm Sat: 3pm-10:30pm Sun: 3pm-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Italian

3.96 rating (37 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cask Conditioned Ale: every Wednesday 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm

4.21 rating (67 votes)
Canteen Brewhouse picks up where the Il Vacino Vassar tap room left off. The canteen is spacious, and so is its 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 its real treat. (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2011)

2.05 rating (131 votes)
This local brewery and restaurant provides delicious food and a bevy of their own brews. The food is approachable American stuff that, coincidentally, goes pretty damn well with beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Fox and Hound Sports Tavern

4301 The Lane at I-25 (I-25 Corridor)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 344-9430
Sun-Sat: 11am-2am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.24 rating (33 votes)
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)

4.09 rating (87 votes)
Formerly Doc & Eddy’s, Krypton Blue is new, clean and ready for action. While the service staff isn’t the best in Albuquerque—double check that they’ve applied happy hour and other special pricing—they make a mean cocktail. Our favorite is the Lush which contains Hendrick's gin, fresh lime juice, cucumber slice, light lavender syrup and St. Germaine. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

La Cumbre Brewing Co.

4.78 rating (10 votes)
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)

Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

4.08 rating (103 votes)
This brewery has quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties of New Orleans style gumbo and the delicious marriage of chicken and waffles. It’s just the place to take your corn-bread-and-Frito-pie-craving friends while still getting your craft beer fix. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Albuquerque - Midtown


3.15 rating (47 votes)
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)
