Maybe it's just that I HATE the whole redecoration of the bar and lobby -- it's like being anywhere chic back east, all slickness, metal and shine. This used to be such a great bar -- now it's like trying to have fun in a surgical suite!

We really enjoyed sitting in the evening listening to the live music. Very talented musicians and the margaritas are the best!

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.

I have very fond memories of La Fonda. It was the first Santa Fe hotel I ever stayed at as a kid with my mom. It was the location of my wedding reception. It has always had such an important place in my heart and is such an integral piece of Santa Fe's history. I had been wanting to try... More

We stayed at La Fonda and went to this bar almost every night. Good live music for dancing. Good bands were there during our stay. Food very good as was the service. Fun place.

My wife and I had a drink at the newly remodeled La Fonda Lounge. Having grown up in Santa Fe and returning on numerous occasions, we are very fond of La Fonda. The last time we were here (about a year ago) they were in the process of remodeling the lobby/lounge area. They didn't do a very good job. The... More

Thank you for your review of La Fiesta. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience in the bar and are unhappy with the renovation. A significant amount of research was done to ensure we brought elements of the original historical bar into this new design. We understand that many were attached to the former bar design, however,... More

The evening host, Osvaldo Mercado, is just outstanding, as are to entire staff. They treat you like family. Osvaldo will always find a table or a stool at the bar for you or a place to stash you coat while you dance so some of the best country music bands in the Southwest. Don't take my word for it, go...

Located in La Fonda, this hotel bar is lively and pleasant; although often crowded. Having live music is nice, however, be prepared to pay high prices for,not so great, drinks. Food portions are large and atmosphere fun.

This is a great spot to visit, have a drink and dance. The Maitre D most nights is Osvaldo Mercado, and he goes above and beyond the call. He is gracious, friendly and makes you feel at home, plus he does a great job
