We've been to Secreto Lounge on every trip to Santa Fe and it is one of my favorite bars in the world. The main bartender (Aaron, I think?) is a magician with his super creative and delicious drinks. It's so fun to sit there and watch them make the drinks like a choreographed dance. The bartenders are great at coming... More

If you are a fan of the unique craft cocktails...then Secreto is a must for your Santa Fe itinerary. The seasonal menu featured a blend of hot and cold cocktails aimed at pleasing even the most discerning visitors. I started with the flambed cherry old fashion. A creative take on a traditional cocktail started with bing cherries that were torched... More

We stopped in on a Saturday late afternoon/early evening and the lounge was already starting to buzz with happy patrons. Had heard/read a lot about this spot and finally decided to give it a try during the off season and so glad we did. The specialty cocktails are wonderful and the appetizers etc. on the bar menu that we ordered... More

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.
