We so enjoyed listening to the pianist/singer and singing along with him to favorite songs! Also, the bar and restaurant areas were relaxing. We also heard from a friend that it is a lovely place to stay overnight but a bit pricey.

Vanessies never disappoints for piano music. Estah was egnaging and covered Rat Pack to Cold Play. Wonderful option for dinner or late night drinks. A true Santa Fe tradition.
