Wine, Beer and Cocktails

There’s nothing better than ending a day in Santa Fe while you sit outside, sipping an adult beverage and watching another magnificent sunset. There’s plenty of sipping spots, but these are some of the best.

  • Atrisco’s—This third-generation restaurant family also owns Tomasita's and this neighborhood restaurant and bar is always busy. A casual spot to belly up to the bar and make some new friends.

  • Beer Creek Brewing-The folks at Beer Creek have quickly earned a loyal following. Is it because they brew some really kick butt beer? Is it the pizzas, which are consistently ranked among the best in the area? Is it the scenic mountain views from their massive patio just off of the Turquoise Trail (Highway 14)? Or maybe it's the laid-back desert vibe, owners, staff that makes you feel like you are just hanging with the gang? Whatever it is, they have quickly become a locals favorite. 

  • Gruet Winery Santa Fe Tasting Room—Champagne, anyone? Located on the side of the St. Francis Hotel, this tasting room promises plenty of bubbles and fun.

  • Herve Wine Bar—Nestled off San Francisco Street, this wine bar is a popular place to wind down with a good glass (or bottle) of wine.

  • Kokomo's Fine Wines & Liquors—If you want a nice drive and get a bottle of wine (or three), this secret spot is where the oenophiles go. Located 12 miles north of Santa Fe on US Highway 285, you will find this store filled with more than 4,000 bottles of wine.

  • Rowley’s Farmhouse Ales—Calling all beer lovers, add Rowley's to your hit list. And go hungry so you can pair some of their flavorful dishes with your new favorite brew.

  • Santa Fe Bar and Grill—A colorful and lively spot for locals in the DeVargas Mall, belly up to the bar and enjoy an afternoon or evening cocktail and meet some new friends.

  • Santa Fe Brewing Co.—Off of I-25 and Cerrillos is the headquarters of the Santa Fe Brewing Co. A giant outdoor space beckons brew lovers to spend time sipping suds while listening to music on the weekends. There is a food truck on-site for grub.

  • Santa Fe Spirits Downtown Tasting Room—Santa Fe's first distillery, you'll love the tasting room where you can sample everything they offer, as well as enjoy a full cocktail menu. From apple brandy to vodka and everything in between, they produce nine different spirits. If you're interested, stop by the distillery for an up-close and personal experience.

  • Second Street Brewery—Brewing beer since 1996, Second Street has two locations to choose from. There's the original off Rufina and the newer location at the Railyard and both locations have a full kitchen and a big menu.

  • Tumbleroot Brewery and Distillery—Established in 2018, Tumbleroot produces beer, spirits, liqueurs, bitters, and canned cocktails. The original location on Agua Fria also has a music component that attracts musicians and bands from all genres.
