Dive Bar, Bar
San Francisco St & Galisteo St
Santa Fe, NM 87503


  • If you're < 40, white, and not from Santa Fe this is the bar for you.
  • What's Not To Love about the Matador! Love One Love All Any Everything in-between! Creative Crowd handled by Creative Crew! Please tell them the VIP sent you! You will love that you did!
  • Great dive bar! Watch out for the unpleasant man who sits in the door way by the backroom.
  • Tip your damn bartender!
  • Awesome old movies. Tonight: Conan
  • Ann & Kate are the best bartenders. Tip them well, you won't regret it.
  • Under-bar hooks for man bags!
  • Tuesday night...DJ Prairiedog...Los Danzantes Mezcal...go ahead and be too forward with someone.
  • This was the last place I was expecting to get a great Moscow Mule and and Old Fashion. But they know they stuff. Just be warned they don't play your Bieber
  • It's cash only and probably not a place you'd take your parents, but it's a great punk bar with affable bartenders and hilarious bathroom graffiti (you can borrow a Sharpie from the bartender).
  • Cheap, divey, and has great decor. Great place to hang
  • Eclectic crowd, cheap beer, though a bit smelly (it *is* a dive)
  • Such a refreshing break from everything "Santa Fe." Dark, dingy, loud, lovely. Rad bartender. Just remember, it's cash only.
  • Bartender was far more cordial than he looks! I'm in my mid-40's and this was ALL throwback to my teens! A do not miss spot in SF!
  • Try the hot dogs!
  • Touristy tragic trap!!!! Like most of Santa fe I guess zzzzzzzzZzzzz
  • Great music in a great place. Barmen are great.
  • Bring Cash. Broken ATM and no credit.
  • East Village vibe and good local crowd.
