Bar
“One of the go-to spots for late night drinks and dinner. They have a decently sized menu with several different meat options. (pork, beef, seafood, steak, chicken, etc.) Children friendly but I don't recommend taking the children at night because it's more of a bar scene past the dinner hour. Dog friendly area. Part of the building is one of the oldest standing structures in Taos and is said to be haunted!”
