This is a dive with GREAT music and interesting crowd! Bathrooms are horrible, no wait staff...order at bar but the music was amazing! We found the bartenders and band super nice...I guess you get back what you put out there! The local crowd was so friendly and we just loved it. I have to say that we did have second... More

Despite the money we spent in this place over the New Years Eve, they didn't let us wait our cab inside. The bouncer was extremely rude. He literally kicked us out and had us wait in cold for 45 minutes until our cab arrived. Worst restaurant/bar experience ever.

This dive bar is out of place in downtown Santa Fe. It's like a dose of reality when everything around seems overtly touristy. We ordered two rounds from the bar and took them to our seats. There didn't appear to be any waitstaff. But that was fine. The music was good and not too loud. Our drinks were generously poured... More

Spent a couple of weeks on the Plaza in November. Yes, the first night in Evangelo's was not warm and fuzzy. Nick, his daughter and staff are not exactly welcoming to newbies. I kinda don't blame them because you learn to be cautious when operating a dive bar as you never know who's walking in the door. But by the... More

Needs a better open minded DJ for Wednesday Hip Hop. It could be more crowed if there was a better DJ. She was nice but not open minded with the hip hop music selection! It was my Birthday I told her hoping she would be nice to play a song I liked that I think would get the place packed... More

We purposely sought out this bar to have a quick drink. Door was wide open, and owner was behind bar serving a couple. My friends and I walked in and he said they weren't open until 5:00, when the band showed up. We stated that we just wanted a quick drink, and he refused to serve us, as couple at... More

Like most other reviews say, the owner is a really jerk!! Don't put your drink down if you want to remember the night . The owner will be real nice if you are female. BEWARE!!!!!!!!

We spent the day in the plaza shopping and enjoying the beautiful galleries. We were ready to sit down somewhere and have a quick drink. We looked up and saw Evangelos and are so thankful we did! Zenobia and J Boy were playing. Where else can you hear Grammy nominated musicians for just a $5 cover? The locals, bartender and... More

By the way, TripAdvisor -- Evangelo's is a bar, not an attraction. The range of reviews are probably due to expectations and age/background of the reviewers. I walked by on Sunday afternoon and heard really good music upstairs from Jay Boy and Zenobia. They were supposed to play until 7 pm so I moved on and came back at 6... More

I have traveled extensively and have to say a one of the worst bars ever. a couple of fancy pictures and a story about your relative does not change what this place really is. An overpriced overrated place in need of condemning.
