First the good - the food was fine. Then the other side - the "tent" venue was dark, drafty (I ate with my jacket on, shivering), and unacceptable for the event we attended. The servers were wonderful even considering having to serve in awful circumstances. I would, perhaps, go to the main bar/dining area since it has a good feel... More

The Solar Center is a great, clean, family friendly place to eat! It not only is a bar with great food, it also has live music on the weekends AND is a radio station. Pretty cool eclectic place!

You walk in the door, go down the long hallway filled with posters of various concerts that have been held there, and then Behold! You can actually see the DJ doing his or his or her radio show on KTAOS SOLAR (actually run by solar power!!) The DJs have big personalities, and are known for their radio shows. There are... More

We visited the center for a family wedding - out back with gorgeous views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. A bar was available, and, when the typical evening monsoon arrived (thankfully after the ceremony had concluded), we were able to move inside to the roomy banquet hall for the reception and dancing. The food, southwestern style, of course, was... More

Wednesday night. Here for friend birthday (the 35th time he celebrated 39). Nominally two-step, but only the birthday boy is two-stepping. Just about everything on the dance floor including one young couple tango. Quite well, too. Music as both good beat and good tunes.

The Solar Center offers a bar with a pleasant atmosphere and a stunning view of the Sangre de Cristos. Beer is great in a friendly casual atmosphere. An added bonus is some of the best radio in northern New Mexico on 101.9 which can be heard from all over the valley as far south as Espanola.

I walked into this place not knowing what to expect. And I was not disappointed. Located on the corner to the ski valley with lots of parking, this place has a unique vibe. I was impressed when I walked through the halls to get to the bar/restaurant and saw all the eye-candy. When I got to the seating area and... More

KTAOS is beloved amongst locals for great concerts and the radio station. We appreciate so much about them including the Lost in Hound Report, Trash and Treasures, good music, fine DJ's, community service, run by locals for locals and being Solar of course. That said, the bar, floor and kitchen can be so badly managed or short staffed during (indoor)... More
