Drinking in Albuquerque

I know I know this is chowhound not boozehound, but I've read the posts I could find about eating in Albuquerque but where should I go for a drink?

I tend to avoid, sportsbars, themed bars, chains, and the like, I can go high end (new 'mixology or retro cocktails is ok - but I do live in New York so maybe not) but I really like dive bars, I guess a college crowd is ok, but more grad school and less baseball hat, you know?

I hope this makes a link of sense. Oh if they serve food, so much the better, a green chille gastropub perhaps?

Oh and I am in town for the weekend for a conference so near downtown is best.

Thanks in advance!

  1. 4th Street in Downtown may be the best bet for you. Burt's Tiki Lounge is fun and usually very relaxed on week nights. There are a fe microbreweries in the area that should fulfill your green chile gastropub requirements :)
