Need I say more? The lounge is located inside this beautiful Spanish inspired hotel in downtown Santa Fe. When you enter the lounge you can smell sage burning, this is the start of your smokey margarita. Staff is a bit slow, but overall this is...More

Stopped here during happy hour and because it was on the Margarita Trail. Had the "smoked sage" margarita. Different. Lived up to expectations, nice atmosphere, great service

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, and I'm happy to hear we did not disappoint. Stop in for another one of our smoked sage margaritas or try another one of our garden to glass cocktails and our unique atmosphere any time.

We were at this bar twice. The first time on a Thursday night they were out of two herbs so we were unable to order two signature cocktails. The second night during happy hour we waited 15 minutes to receive a gin on the rocks...More

We sat outside for the people watching and enjoyed some drinks. We tried the smoked sage margarita. A very different taste and while not my favorite I appreciate the creativity. The bar service is very slow. Not sure if it is a shortage of bartenders,...More

They have this amazing margarita that is rimmed with sage smoked salt. And be prepared to wait about 30 minutes for it--or even for a glass of wine. This spot that could be great if they'd just hire some more bartenders and waitstaff. DO NOT...More

Came here for drinks while we waited for dinner, ordered the Smoked Sage Margarita and the Jerry Thomas Smash (they have the margarita regularly, but rotate the other cocktails). Both drinks are recommended though I especially liked the Smash as I love my mint juleps.

It's popular due to location. Wine is not good. Stick with basics. The appetizers were surprisingly good. Get the empanadas. Margaritas were disappointing. Small but friendly and closes at 11 as it's a bar in the hotel. The out door porch attached to front of...More
