Albuquerque Nightlife, New Mexico


If you want a night out in town and groove to the latest chartbusters on jam packed dance floors and indulge in wild rounds of partying with the hottest babes and coolest dudes in town, you might want to check out the electrifying nightlife in Albuquerque.

It boasts of some of the best party hot spots, discotheques, night clubs, sports bars, pubs and other similar rocking watering holes in New Mexico.

Nghtlife is spectacular to say the least and you might head to the following fashionable addresses for wetting your parched tongue or gyrating to foot tapping numbers from popular music.

O’Neill’s Pub

The USP of this cozy neighborhood bar is its world class alcoholic beverage collection coupled with pub grub to fill the tummy, long hours to chat with friends, competitive prices, friendly staff and a relaxed laid back atmosphere. You can find the best burgers of Albuquerque in this joint. It is the most popular Nob Hill watering hole since the last decade.

Laffs Comedy Café

As the name suggests, this café is based on a theme - the latest trend in town and is the best place to be when you are in need of a good laugh after feeling blue for too long.

The stage is graced by comedians of national repute who bring their own original material to keep you in splits. Before the show starts, you can grab a full dinner a la carte and during the course of the show, subdue your appetite with pub grub palate pleasers. You have to purchase a minimum of two food items for each person. This comedy café is one of the main nocturnal attractions in Albuquerque.

Caravan East

If you are in the mood for some fabulous western music and country rock, head straight to Caravan East that has survived the onslaught of new and young competitors for over 5 decades but is still going strong. It dominates the kickass nightlife scene in Albuquerque and cowboy music is belted out by two bands every night.

Kimo Theater

How can you visit Albuquerque and forget to catch a play or an opera in the Kimo Theater erected in 1927 and beautifully styled in a Pueblo Deco design?

It was originally intended as a vaudeville stage and movie palace, but has metamorphosed into a venue for performing arts.

    travel tip by kachou_n posted more then 30 days ago
