When I want an excellent margarita, I go to the lounge at La Fonda and order the Don Real. I'm not even sure what makes it soooo yummy but of all the margs I've tried in and around Santa Fe, it tops them all.

Nice selection of tequila made by the barrel just for La Fonda by various tequila makers. Great bar to get a quick drink before heading out for the day or night. Head bartender is great and very knowledgeable on crafty drinks.

As lively as Lobby Bars get! All manner of tasty finger food and a happening Happy Hour. Very attentive and professional wait staff. A perfect way to wind down a busy day listening to the local musical attractions.
