"Hi Yili, Albuquerque doesn't have that much to offer in terms of NightLife, but what we do have is Effex Night Club (gay, but great music, and a lot of people like to hang there Thur/Fri/Sat) Monte Vista, Imbibe, Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro and Two Fools Tavern are located in Nob Hill (off Central near the University of New Mexico) While you're in ABQ, you might as well visit Santa Fe during the day and check out the shopping, Santa Fe Plaza, Canyon Road Galleries (a road with 75+ galleries), and delicious eateries ( Blue Corn Cafe And Brewery, The Shed, and Tomasita's are good places to start)."
