Graham Central Station
(505) 524-9131

Located at [Address], it's open all night, so it's a pretty good bet that you're going to be feeling it the next morning. Enjoy the late-night debauchery, but drink lots of water and pop some Advil.

1200 Foster Rd

Club - Maybe you'll see Norm in the corner. Or Cliff sitting next to him. Maybe Sam behind the bar. Yep, Club is that comfortable, cozy neighborhood bar - the kind where the bartender seems to know everyone who walks through the door.

Welcome Inn Package Store
(505) 524-0513
127 E Amador Ave
Las Cruces, NM
Welcome Inn Package Store - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Welcome Inn Package Store kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

Knights Of Columbus

1300 Avenida DE Mesilla
Las Cruces, NM
Gadsden Purchase - If you need a place to unwind after another week of mindless TPS reports, Gadsden Purchase, located at [Address], might just do the trick. Pretty barebones and without fanfare, but the prices are reasonable and there's no hassle at the door.

Hoot N Annie
(505) 525-8303
150 E Madrid Ave
Las Cruces, NM
Hoot N Annie, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Hoot N Annie

Hurricane Alley
(505) 532-9358
1490 Missouri Ave # A
Las Cruces, NM
Hurricane Alley - If you have to work the next morning, we bet a thousand bucks you're going to call in sick. That's because Hurricane Alley, at [Address], is open all night. So the odds of you getting a good night sleep are closed to zilch - we predict you stumbling home around 8am and flopping into bed, forgetting to brush your teeth. And nothing wrong with that.

(505) 523-0440
2395 N Solano Dr
Las Cruces, NM
Victoria's - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Victoria's makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

High Desert Brewing Co
(505) 525-6752
1201 W Hadley Ave
Las Cruces, NM
High Desert Brewing Co - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. High Desert Brewing Co? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.

Hidden Forest
(505) 526-7700
1765 S Main St
Las Cruces, NM
Hidden Forest - Why go to bed when you can have another drink? At Hidden Forest, located at [Address], the party marches into the late, late hours, as they have one of the best all-night parties. Of course, this could mean some serious pain the next morning (or, more likely, the next afternoon.) Don't say we didn't warn you.

Essential Bartending Equipment

By Russ Cobbe

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?

Combo Corkscrew/Bottle Opener - Obviously needed to open that fine wine or bottles of beer that don't have twist tops.

Paring Knife/Cutting Board - Used to cut up lemons and limes for garnishing along with other fruits in certain drinks.

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.
