This roof top lounge sits on top of a former mental hospital turned hotel. That alone is neat and made our visit a bit more interesting. The building itself isn't very tall so don't expect a huge panoramic view but it is above Central street...More

The rooftop views are worth seeing but the drinks were lacking. I’d recommend this for couples on a date as it is a cozy but chic atmosphere. The hours don’t go late into the night so keep that in mind.

So hey, I'll lead with the same thing I lead with on a lot of reviews: I AM A COCKTAIL SNOB. As such, I will always look for the highest-rated cocktail bar in whatever town I'm traveling to. On a recent business trip to Albuquerque,...More

Food was exceptional, and a perfect match to go with the view of the city and sunset. Do not skip on one of there specialty drinks, helped melt away last of the car ride left behind.

We stopped to have a drink at the Apothecary Lounge before we headed to the airport for our flight back home. Alysia (a.k.a. "April") was behind the bar and made us our drinks. She was actually wearing someone else's name tag (April), so when we...More

Traveling solo, so a window seat and a range of food choices fit the bill for me. Nothing too fancy, but contemporary fare. And the service was good.

Great cocktails (we enjoyed the caipirinha & old fashioned) & snacks. The waffle-battered chicken bites with a hint of maple syrup paired with crispy sweet potato fries & the calamari were both hits with us. Very relaxing outdoor setting.
