We came upon this place after finding other restaurants with long waiting times. It is a combo solar center, radio station, bar, restaurant and live music venue! We wandered through the long hallway and eventually found ourselves in a large open bar area. Seating included overstuffed chairs, couches, bar tables and an assortment of stools. We sat by the window... More

One of the best music venues in Taos, with the best view, too! And the food is very good, as well, especially for bar food. Great for all ages.

We live only a mile away, so this bar/music venue is place we visit frequently. Just a couple of things to note: the music rarely starts earlier than a half hour late.

the solar center is a great building, with one of the best views around of the mountains. the atmosphere is chill, and the outdoor area is fantastic! the music venue is great for dancing, lots of room and a decent wooden dance floor. if only there were some good music there other than bad pop music and white boy reggae....

This space is wonderful for a beer with a beautiful view and great sandwiches. The Taos BRAWL (women's arm wrestling for charity) occurred while we were there. Go Whiplashes! Enjoy a little of the local culture for a good cause.

We just stopped in for a quick drink. The bar staff was nice, but not overly friendly. Some interesting live music was going on and a concert was scheduled to start later. A location unlike any other! Watching the live broadcast through the soundproof glass box was a unique experience!
