The bartenders here are true mixologists, please try some of their creations, the smoke sage margherita was killer, the staff was very friendly and the seating/environment was super comfortable. The veranda is a cool place to sit and people watch!!

This bar has one of the best bartenders around. They always have fresh ingredients for the drinks so you can get a mojito in the dead of winter. There is a cool outdoor seating area in front of the hotel where you can people watch, it is pet friendly. During some times of the day there is not a cocktail... More

It doesn't matter how good the drinks are if they are terribly expensive and the service sucks, like at this place. Never again. You'd think the management would realize.

This is a hot spot, so if you can find a table, grab it. The drinks and food are pretty pricey, but very good.

You have to try the Smoked Sage Margarita! It is deliciousness in a glass. Service is friendly and personable!

We've been to Secreto Lounge on every trip to Santa Fe and it is one of my favorite bars in the world. The main bartender (Aaron, I think?) is a magician with his super creative and delicious drinks. It's so fun to sit there and watch them make the drinks like a choreographed dance. The bartenders are great at coming... More

If you are a fan of the unique craft cocktails...then Secreto is a must for your Santa Fe itinerary. The seasonal menu featured a blend of hot and cold cocktails aimed at pleasing even the most discerning visitors. I started with the flambed cherry old fashion. A creative take on a traditional cocktail started with bing cherries that were torched... More

We stopped in on a Saturday late afternoon/early evening and the lounge was already starting to buzz with happy patrons. Had heard/read a lot about this spot and finally decided to give it a try during the off season and so glad we did. The specialty cocktails are wonderful and the appetizers etc. on the bar menu that we ordered... More

Located off the lobby in the St. Francis Hotel, the Secreto is a nice spot to stop for a drink after a day of meandering Old Town. Sit at the bar and watch the mixologist work his magic, which might include burning sage leaves for the smoked sage margarita. Happy hour goes until 7 and gets you $3 off cocktails.

Thank vinfan
