Their hours seem to change monthly, but Adieux Café is still serving up excellent beer and cocktails in the heart of Downtown. The kitchen closed, but the eatery next door serves their food to the bar’s patrons Friday and Saturday nights. (Alibi Staff, January 7, 2014)

There are indeed “few choices left to get that cool Haight-Ashbury ’60s feeling.” Don’t get the wrong idea though, this neighborhood coffee shop isn’t overflowing with hippies. It attracts a diverse crowd of cyclists, artists, musicians, hipsters and grown-ups just looking for a cuppa joe (albeit one with in-house roasted beans). The food is simple and satisfying, from freshly baked scones to waffles, sandwiches and salads. Warning: The scrambled-egg breakfast burrito may cause you to moan out loud. Don’t worry though, the people sitting around you will understand. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Marble Brewery

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.

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.3 rating (92 votes)
The Cooperage is old-school Albuquerque, right down to the dusty light fixtures. The barrel-shaped steakhouse has been a standby for 30 years thanks to its mile-long complimentary salad and soup bar, aged steaks (at a place like this, prime rib is king) and a big dance floor that’s always packed on the weekends.

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111

Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.34 rating (129 votes)
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 Bar & Tapas

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.15 rating (75 votes)
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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mykonos Café & Taverna

Sun-Thu: 11am-9pm Fri-Sat: 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner

2.29 rating (43 votes)
This is Greek food that’s elegant, straightforward and absolutely delicious. White tile and recessed blue light create an island oasis that’s suggested rather than spelled out (no 8-foot murals here), and the service is friendly and attentive. The lentil soup is seasoned with just a whisper of aged balsamic vinegar, perfect with a toasty triangle of imported pita bread and a light Greek salad. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

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)

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)

Albuquerque - Nob Hill

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.09 rating (74 votes)
With sometimes too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd, it’s usually best to avoid this place on the weekends. But stop in for a late lunch or weeknight burger and a beer, and you’ll get a different experience. The beef here is grass-fed, New Mexico-grown, and steroid- and antibiotic-free, and the cooks at Monte Vista deserve praise for what they do with it. The freshly ground burgers are juicy and big, the chile cheese fries hit the spot, and the beef skewers are tender and one of the best deals on cow in town. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.51 rating (99 votes)
The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. Try their Bloody Mary bar on the weekends, or their Sunday brunch. There’s plenty of fresh-pressed espresso to sip with it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.52 rating (70 votes)
Deep-frying may well be a Scottish national pastime, pursued with the same extremist zeal as soccer hooliganism and pub patronage. Sink your teeth into one of the breaded and fried items Two Fools Tavern offers and you'll understand why. This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include perfect fish and chips, buckets of beer, scads of Scotches and Saturday and Sunday brunch with, of course, live Celtic music. They also serve a perfectly rationed hot toddy. Order one in the colder months and sip on it by the fireplace. You won’t be disappointed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Yanni's and Lemoni Bar and Grill

Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.83 rating (103 votes)
You love Yanni's. So do we. Their adjoined Opa Bar seats about 85 people and is open for lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Painted deep red, dimly lit and accented with lots of dark wood, the lounge provides a stark contrast to the bright, light and airy dining rooms at Yanni's. It’s an ideal place for pre- or post-movie cocktails and snacks, or more substantial cuisine. Their green chile Bloody Mary will certainly boost your brunch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Zacatecas is an upscale taco-and-tequila concept and the baby of Mark Kiffin, whose Santa Fe restaurant The Compound is renowned for its ingredients and artistry. His Pacific rock cod taco is perfectly browned on the outside, juicy on the inside and oozing with glorious fish grease. With the addition of coleslaw and habañero salsa, this is not the taco of anyone’s abuelita. Toast her health with a three-mescal sampler, which comes in terra cotta dishes. Often features live music. (Alibi Staff, May 3, 2012)

4.21 rating (80 votes)
Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Downstairs, the wine bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks, music and daily specials including the $9 beer, brat and pretzel every Thursday. The happy hour menu, wines by the glass and prices are the best around. Give the brunch a try, and while you’re at it, try a Taos Mule from the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.09 rating (102 votes)
One of the most beautiful patios in town. Benavidez is way the hell up there in the North Valley, but if you’re looking for a good breakfast burrito, or simply someplace to sit and have some chips, queso and a mind-erasing Bloody Mary, this place is worth your time. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

2.82 rating (49 votes)
New Mexican food in the Garduño’s vein—plus burgers and booze—in a bucolic valley setting. In fact, El Bruno’s does indeed occupy the site (and, one might assume, the demographic) of the former North Valley Garduño’s. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)
