Cocktail Lounges Clovis NM
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.
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
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 - 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.
Other, American/Family, Mexican/Southwest, Sports Bars/Pubs, vegetarian
Santa Rosa, NM
Sahara's Lounge - Happy hour never looked so good. Sahara's Lounge, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.
T D's Showclubs - Break out the single dollar bills. Round up the guys. (And maybe some open-minded girls.) T D's Showclubs is all about lap dances, poles, and endless naked flesh. Just don't get tricked into thinking you'll go home with one of them. Sorry. You won't. They flirt because they want your money. Not to be a buzz-kill, just looking out for you.
Gotta love those cocktails
