SFR's 2012 Guide to Santa Fe's Best Bars and Nightlife

April 25, 2012, 12:00 am

 In June 2009, The Atlantic published a story titled “Cold Fusion”—a heavily serious headline for an article about cocktail ice. Suffice it to say that, in some coastal cities, mixology is a discipline, and cocktails are an art.

Characteristically, Santa Fe is looking both ways—twice—before it crosses that street, but we’re getting there.

For this year’s issue of our annual bar and nightlife guide, though, we focused on more than just drinking (although we did coax a few secrets out of Rio Chama bartender Rob Rittmeyer and did a quick analysis of the burgeoning local distillery scene). Two of SFR’s talented interns, Jackson Larson and Tescia Schell, share their views on the under-21 nightlife scene (page 26) and lend some advice for what to do if you can’t/don’t/would rather not drink.

On page 25, Schell also offers some tips for getting home safely—because, when it comes down to it, we’ll never get to explore the vast universe of oddly shaped cocktail ice unless we’re smart enough not to hurt each other in the process. Summer’s long nights and balmy breezes are coming; be smart, stay safe and have fun, Santa Fe!
