This USED to be reserved for El Patio and Hurricane Alley but there are some new players in the game.
Azul Ultra Lounge
Located inside of Hotel Encanto, Azul is known for its exquisite and luxury ambiance just as much as it is for its great nightly drink specials. Did we mention DJ Robert Bailon is spinning the turntables every Friday and Saturday night?
After 12:30pm any Friday or Saturday. Known in DJ-land as ‘Prime Time.’
705 S. Telshor Blvd.
The Game II
Located on the East Mesa, the Game II is quickly becoming one of Las Cruces’ hottest spots to hit up and if you don’t believe us, just try and find parking after 6pm. With a huge outdoor patio that will accommodate all of your friends and your family, you’ll find live music on the weekends, just get there early!
Head on over to the Game I on Wednesday at 7pm for some poker.
4131 Northrise Dr.
At first skyrocketing to popularity because of their craft beers and amazing food, the Pecan Grill is becoming a trendy spot to kick back with friends and hang out in the evening. With many themed evenings like ‘Tuesday Brewsday’ or ‘It’s a Pup’ Saturday—where dog owners are encouraged to bring their pet to the patio—there’s something for everyone.
Gentleman & Ladies Night starts every Thursday at 7pm.
500 S. Telshor Blvd.
Probably best known for being the first micro-distillery in Southwestern NM, but don’t let that fool you, because behind the copper still lies an active nightlife scene complete with as varied a food menu as you could imagine. At the Toad, food trucks rotate during the week and you can bring your own food if you want.
Hit up Tuesday which is often open mic or Karoake night. Be the first to hear local Las Cruces talent!
119 Main St.
NM Vintage Wines
Well known for their signature wine series and wide selection of high-quality cigars, this Mesilla gem is creating a buzz in the evenings, especially on the weekend with live music most Friday and Saturday evenings. Often featuring solo acts and duos—both acoustic and not—the atmosphere is relaxed and the ambiance is out of this world!
Try popping over at 6pm on a Wednesday for Game Night!
2461 Calle de Principal
Spotted Dog Brewery
With a name like Spotted Dog, many folks just assume it’s a ‘biker bar’, but nothing could be further from the truth and if you don’t believe us, just try some of the food. With a logo of “Unfiltered, Unconventional, Unleashed”, they stick to their logo. One of the great things about this place—other than the incredible microbrew beers—is that despite a few mainstays, the menu rotates.
Be creative. Pop in any night and maybe you’ll get the baked spanikopita or the autumn sunrise sausage sandwich!
