As a previous review states, this was the low point of our stay at an otherwise great venue. We came down just for drinks and appetizer. Our server was less than attentive; he never checked back with us on whether or not we wanted another beverage. I tried 4-5 times to get his attention so I could get some water... More

Our visit to the Anaconda Bar was the low point of our stay at El Monte Sagrado Resort. Every other aspect of our experience was above and beyond all of our expectations. We thought that we would round out our evening with a couple of drinks at the bar. From the get-go it was clear the service would not match... More

We had eaten at the restaurant here at Monte Sagrado the previous evening. What brought us back was a bowl of red chili I seaeched the Internet for restaurants in Taos that had a bowl of chili, bit I was unsuccessful. The Anaconda Bar was the only place that I found. I did see a vegan chili somewhere, but that... More

A few good beers on tap and they make a good mohito. Bar food prices here are the only bargain in the hotel. Our only disappointment and a standing joke at the bar is "where is the Anaconda's head"? It body coils up on one side and the belly of the snake runs overhead and light the bar...... But...... No... More

While staying at the El Monte, my husband and I made a quick trip to the hotel's Anaconda Bar before retiring one evening, The bartender was in training and did a superb job mixing my husband's dry martini. Quiet, sophisticated, and swank.

Very nice bar in a beautiful hotel. Good service and fun staff. My IPA(s) were good and cold. We had a great burger with yummy fries and the green chile Mac-n-cheese!

we stayed at this hotel for several nights, and found this "watering hole" to be a real asset to the property. The bartender was attentive, funny, and over-the-top tuned into our needs. He/she anticipated our wants (same every night no matter who was at the bar), and were incredibly kind and attentive each day we came in. My husband had... More

We actually spent our late afternoon thru dinner at the bar (eating the restaurant menu). Great atmosphere. Warm. Relaxing. Comfortable. WOuld have like the bartender-ess to have warmed up to us sooner than it happened but after she smiled, we had a great conversation! Can't wait to get back and have another Taos Lightning Old Fashioned! YUM!

Skip the valet parking, tell any snobbish doormen to shove it, and get on in and get a beautiful drink in a very nice atmosphere. I love this place and bring out of town visitors here when we visit Taos from Santa Fe. Walk the grounds of Monte Sagrada if it is still light out.

We were staying in El Monte Sagrado and made this our afternoon stop all three evenings. We love the cucumber and jalapeño margaritas and espresso martinis. I can't believe the harsh reviews previous as we were well attended by the whole staff. Bartenders remember you from day to day. The bar food was great on two occasions- nachos one time... More
