Bartending Equipment Clovis NM
1305 Mabry Dr
Choppers, located at [Address], has a smooth and chill vibe. It's not the kind of place where you'll be dancing on tables, but it's no dive bar, either. A good mix of laid-back décor and casual comfort. -Review of Choppers
2010 W 7th St
Divas - Known for its simple décor and good drinks, Divas is located at [Address]. Just make sure you dress up a little, as it's not quite the frat bar you're used to from college.
Terrene Cafe Hookah Lounge
106 Vassar Dr SE
506 Central Avenue Southwest
4555 Highway 314 SW
Los Lunas, NM
Wild Pony - Dress up. Wild Pony isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.
Prince Lounge & Package Goods
701 N Prince St
Prince Lounge & Package Goods - True, it might not be as cheap as a dive bar, but Prince Lounge & Package Goods offers an upscale ambience with a laid back vibe. Located at [Address], it's a good "middle-tier" nightlife option.

Garrett's Desert Inn
311 Old Santa Fe Trl
Santa Fe, NM
Garrett's Desert Inn - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Garrett's Desert Inn? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.
Paramount Liquor & Lounge
3090 W Highway 66
Paramount Liquor & Lounge - Let's call it what it is. Paramount Liquor & Lounge, at [Address], is a good place to pull. The crowd is good looking and the ambiance is sexy, so if you can't meet someone here, well, keep drinking and try again. Liquid courage always helps. Look, we're not guaranteeing anything, but at Paramount Liquor & Lounge you should have plenty of options.

Setting up your own home bar can be great fun when you have people over. It isn't overly expensive to get all the essentials. So what are the tools of the trade you'll need to show off to your guests?
Blender - If you don't already have one, get a good one that has good speed and power. Nothing is more annoying than waiting 5 minutes to crush up some ice or blend a drink.

Paring Knife/Cutting Board - Used to cut up lemons and limes for garnishing along with other fruits in certain drinks.
Shaker - Used for mixing various drinks.
Measure - There is a special device that looks like two triangles on top of each other at the apexes but a lot of people use a shot glass these days.
Bar Strainer - Used in a lot of cocktail recipes to stain out ice that might have been used to cool ingredients in a recipe. It looks like a little paddle with lots of round rings on the end.
Lemon/Lime Squeezer - This has a flat collector base with a raised pointed section in the middle with ridges. Its used to squeeze out fresh lemon or lime juice.
There are over 20 different styles of glasses from brandy to wine. Did y...
