 Green Onion is exactly what you'd expect in a sports bar: lots of beer, booze, smoke, rowdy sports fans and, of major importance, lots of televisions -- 11 to be exact, including a 60-inch set used during parties for the Super bowl, the World Series, NBA playoffs and other major televised sports events. Two of the sets are hooked up to the National Trivia Network, which runs half-hour trivia games of 15 questions in which players compete at no charge against other bars around the country  

 Green Onion Sports Bar
1851 St. Michael's Dr. • 983-5198

A staple in Santa Fe, the Green Onion is where sports fans of all sorts gather to watch games and where local sports teams meet after their own games. The Green Onion is truly a local bar, even a neighborhood bar. Founded 25 years ago by an Irishman, the Green Onion is considered the only traditional Irish bar in Santa Fe where St. Patrick's Day is treated like a national holiday with a huge party featuring bagpipes and other live music and the usual culinary suspects -- corned beef and cabbage and Irish stew. The rest of the year, the Green Onion serves classic pub food including hot and cold sandwiches, pizza and excellent hamburgers as well as pretty darned good New Mexican dishes. The Green Onion is open Monday through Saturday until 2 AM and Sundays until midnight. The kitchen stays open until 9:30 PM on weeknights and 8:30 PM Saturday and Sunday.

Pink Adobe
406 Old Santa Fe Trail. • 983-7712

You'll meet everyone in town at this long-standing landmark that's the "essential Santa Fe experience" for enthusiasts who come to Santa Fe. Rosalea Murphey has owned this restaurant for 50 years. The several dining rooms have fireplaces and works by artists that include Rosalea herself. The steak Dunnigan, smothered in green chili and mushrooms, and the savory shrimp Louisianne--fat and deep-fried crispy--are among the perennial Continental, New Orleans creole, and New Mexican dishes served here. The apple pie drenched in rum sauce is a perennial favorite. 


El Farol
808 Canyon Rd. • 983-9912

Owner David Salazar sums up his food in one word: "Spanish." Order a classic entrée like paella or make a meal from the 20 different tapas--from tiny fried squid to wild mushrooms. Dining is indoors and outdoors at relaxed El Farol. People push back the chairs and start dancing at around 9:30.

Catamount Bar & Grill
125 E. Water St. • 988-7222;
Catamount Bar Billiards Room, 988-7299

The popular Catamount Bar & Grill is a literal stomping ground for the 20- to 30-year-old set who come to dance, dine and maybe meet the love of their lives in a dark, Irish tavern-like atmosphere. The Catamount features live music on weekends -- primarily rock, blues and jazz, mostly by local talent (from Santa Fe, Albuquerque or Taos) and occasionally a national band on tour. A cover charge, generally between $2 to $5, will get you in the door. Then it's up to you to find space on the packed tile dance floor. The grill offers standard bar fare, including chicken breasts, hamburgers, buffalo wings and nachos, while the bar bills its Margaritas as a specialty and carries locally made microbrews from Wolf Canyon Brewing Company (see subsequent entry). Upstairs is a billiards room with six 9-foot Brunswick pool tables that rent for $8 to $10 an hour, depending on the time of day, plus $2 for each additional person. Smoking is allowed throughout the establishment, including cigars, which are for sale in the billiards room. The Catamount stays open until 2 AM Monday through Saturday and midnight on Sunday.

Rocky's Bar & Grill
1201 Cerrillos Rd. • 986-1992

Rocky's is a family-owned lounge that is part sports bar, part dance bar. Its four television sets are tuned to sports channels at all times and are visible from most corners of the saloon, even by the pool tables, which rent out for $1 per person per game. The owners host parties during big sporting events with food and drink specials such as $1.99 super nachos and $2 pitchers of beer for parties of six or more.

On Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights, the bar turns into a cabaret with live local bands playing rock, blues or R&B for a $2 to $3 cover charge, depending on who's performing. The crowd changes with the music -- younger people for alternative rock, baby boomers for blues. Sporting events draw all age groups. Rocky's tends to attract more locals than tourists because it's not downtown. As a result, it has the feel of a neighborhood bar with lots of regulars. As the name implies, Rocky's Bar & Grill also serves food, specializing in burgers and New Mexican dishes. Rocky's is open Monday through Thursday until midnight and Friday and Saturday until 2 AM. It's closed on Sunday.
