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.

We learned of Secreto Lounge by reading an old NY Times "36 Hours" article. Wow! Wow! Wow! One of the best craft cocktail experiences I have ever experienced anywhere. Off the lobby of the St. Francis Hotel (check out the cool, understated lobby) a couple blocks south of the Plaza, this bar undoubtedly is crushed most of the year, but... More

We're very picky about the margaritas and they delivered! The service was a little slow - they were understaffed which was strange as it was a holiday week. But we were in no hurry...

The bartender at the Secreto Lounge makes amazing cocktails with local flavour. We made this our pre-dinner cocktail stop regardless of where we were dining. Highly recommend!

We stopped by on Santa Fe's margarita trail. This a nice small bar off the lobby of the Hotel St. Francis. The decor is nice, the lighting is low and the service was good. The drinks were just average, which was disappointing for the price.

We enjoy coming here in the Hotel St. Francis.The cocktails are delicious and we enjoy the glasses of Gruet. They have a food menu but with so many options in Santa Fe we did not try it here.

Everytime in Santa Fe we stopped to get Sage margaritas. They were $7 for happy hour and when I went to pay recently they were up to $9. Very sad because now they are out of my price range. Goodbye Secreto Lounge.

Stopped for the famous "smoked sage" margarita and ended up trying 2 other cocktails by mixologist Chris! Great cocktails and good service. I would definitely recommend sitting at the bar to watch them do their magic mixing the drinks!

You must visit this lounge if you are staying in Santa Fe. Beautiful place with great drinks! The bartender, Aaron was extremely knowledgeable about mixing drinks & every single one he made was done with perfection! Went in for a cocktail & ended up staying for a few hours because the drinks, atmosphere & wonderful locals I met were awesome!

Smoked sage margarita- what can I say? Salty rim but with a light smokey flavor from real smoked sage . I don't like the artificial smoke flavor they put in so many foods so I was a little leery. But this drink was tasty! We ordered off the apps and light meals menu. The fries were a hit - truffle... More
