Mon-Wed 4pm-midnight, Thu-Sun noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)

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. Gaze up at them as you savor an American dark sour or Scarlet beh gose.

(505) 764-8887
www.launchpadrocks.com
4pm-2am (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Bar
In Albuquerque there are a handful of rocking places to rock, but when it comes to really rocking out to some sweet rocking rock, be it shredding, noodling, head banging or self-conscious toe-tapping, the Launchpad is where the magic happens. Grab a cocktail or a beer from the bar, head upstairs and enjoy the show.

Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: Brewery
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.

Rio Bravo Brewing Company’s motto is, “Live bold!” So go courageously into that good brewery, and open yourself up to the possibilities of the Duke City pils, La Luz lager or a Level 3 IPA. Pair your brew with something fresh from one of the rotating food trucks that visit, and dance the night away to the slick tunes brought by live musicians.

Sister

407 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
505-242-4900
sisterthebar.com
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. Make sure to try one of their fun and refreshing cocktails like the Ho Chi Minh coffee.

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

The Cooperage

7220 Lomas Blvd NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 255-1657

Mon-Fri: 11am-2:30pm, 5pm-10pm Sat: noon-2:30pm, 5pm-10pm Sun: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
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
(505) 332-0800
www.barleyroom.com
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)
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.

Gecko’s Bar & Tapas

5801 Academy Rd NE (Northeast Heights) (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-8291
www.geckosbar.com
Sun-Thrs: 11am-11pm Fri-Sat: 11am- midnight Bar hours: Mon-Sun: 11am- midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
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.

Mykonos Café & Taverna

5900 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 291-1116
www.mykonoscafeandtaverna-2…
Sun-Thu: 11am-9pm Fri-Sat: 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner
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.

Savoy Wine Bar & Grill

10601 Montgomery Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 294-9463
savoyabq.com
Dinner: Daily from 5pm The Lounge: Daily from 3pm Happy Hour: Daily 3-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
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.

Chow down on “New Mexican soul food” and wash it all down with American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup-winning brews. The Imperial cream ale is crisp and smooth, the milk stout is rich and creamy. Not a beer person? Go for Black Mesa wines or Santa Fe Cider Works hard ciders.

This locally-owned and family-operated brewery serves award-winning beer brewed by the co-owner and brewmaster, Mike Campbell. Fridays you can enjoy food trucks that come at 5pm and live music is played on Saturdays. Drafty Kilt gives back to the community by serving Happy Hour prices all day every day to teachers, police officers, first responders, active military and veterans. We like the Groundskeeper Willie cream ale.

zincabq.com/menus/cellar-bar
Mon 4:30-11pm, Tue-Sat 4:30pm-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: American, Bar
When you walk into Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro, turn right and head down the stairway into small and sultry little bar. With a curated wine list and killer nightly specials, the Cellar Bar is an excellent date night that won’t break the bank (if you order right). We recommend stopping in for their Wine and Cheese Wednesdays.

If often too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd is what you’re searching for, look no further. All the dude-bros from UNM will be happy to hang out with you and get rowdy. Pair your Long Island iced teas with daily specials like Monday $1 tacos.

This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include 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. Or go for a perfectly poured Guinness during the hotter months. They’ll even decorate the head with a nifty little shamrock!

You love Yanni's. So do we. Their adjoined Lemoni Bar seats about 85 people and is open for lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Painted natural tones and accented with elegant lighting, the lounge provides a subtle 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.

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 cellar bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks and music. 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.

505-897-0444
elbrunosabq.com
Mon-Sun 11am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
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.

Touted as New Mexico’s largest restaurant, the North Valley’s El Pinto is best known for its gorgeous, shady environment (perennially Best Patio in our restaurant polls) and award-winning jarred salsa. Try it for margaritas, brunch and a little flan.
