The 5 Best Places to Grab a Drink in Taos, New Mexico

by Taylor Maguire Sep 8, 2016

1. KTAOS Solar Center

KTAOS Solar Center

El Prado, United States

With a huge array of solar panels, KTAOS is hard to miss. Located in the same building with two radio stations, only glass separates you from the live broadcast. Take advantage of the best happy hour in Taos with a medley of different songs and enjoy the patio view of Taos Pueblo. Ladies night is every Thursday, and by ladies night they mean bring comfortable shoes (or go local with your bare feet) – Taos loves to dance!

2. Eske’s Brew Pub and Eatery

Taos, United States

Wednesday is Bluegrass night at Eske’s; order a green chile beer and enjoy the show. Coming from someone who doesn’t particularly like bluegrass nor flavoured beers, Eske’s is sure to turn your mind around. Conveniently located next to the plaza, you can saunter over after exploring town or stop by earlier for dinner, their famous green chile soup burrito is a local favourite, get it with feta or vouch for their vegan option.  #bar #pub #cheap-eats #open-late #dancing #casual #food

3. Alley Cantina

‘The Alley’ is in the plaza, in one of the oldest buildings in Taos. Open late, it is great place to grab a burger with friends and locals. They have live music every night that will fluctuate between dive bar bands, jazz ensembles, and surprisingly melodic hidden gems. Stop by for jazz night on Sundays and enjoy a game of cheap pool. #bar #food #casual #dancing #cheap-eats #open-late

4. Taos Mesa Brewing Tap Room

Taos, United States

They just opened the Tap Room this year, and with 24 brews on tap and a wood fired pizza oven it’s quickly become a Taos staple. Located next to Ski Valley, the tap room is a great après ski stop. Cooling down after a day on the slopes? Order their Black Diamond Export Stout.

5. Taos Mesa Brewing

Taos Mesa Brewing

El Prado, United States

Known as TMB or just ‘the Brewery,’ this is the first place locals will tell you to go and the first place you’ll see in Taos. Just outside of town on highway 64, it’s hard to miss the quirky Quonset. Open 7 days a week, the Brewery has at least nine of their brews on tap at any given time and boasts live music every night. Join the after-work crowd and order a Great Scotch Scottish. #free-wifi #food #casual #dancing #open-late #beer #music #brewery
