Description: The KTAOS Solar Bar is the place to meet friends for happy hour, enjoy a variety of live music acts, dig into authentic tacos, and of course bring out-of-town guests. The KTAOS Solar Bar offers an unparalleled bar experience, framed by two operating radio stations. All that separates bar patrons from the live solar-powered radio broadcast are large panels of quarter-inch glass. The KTAOS Solar Bar's indoor lounge area and solar-powered radio stations can only be matched by the huge, rolling backyard lawn that borders the Taos Pueblo lands, offering spectacular views of the sacred Taos Mountain.

This is truly one of the most spectacular bars I've ever been in. The view of the mountains is just amazing. The drinks and service were average, but the view... oh, the view!

“Awesome spot-Amazing view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

Stopped in by chance while we were headed back to Arroyo Seco. Drove by and saw a sign for "the Ultimate Led Zepplin Expierence" and had to see it. Got tickets and ate while we waited for the show to start. Super busy evening and it took about 45 minutes. Not too bad considering. The Alpine Swiss burger wasn't bad and my girlfriend had the Cesar Salad. Awesome concert in the Pavillion and we truly enjoyed our Expierence at the KTAO Solar Center!

“Nice Bar, OK Restaurant”

Very cool place to go and have a drink. Beer prices are great, happy hour is even better. Music and atmosphere are excellent. The menu is sparce but enough to get you by.

“Unbelievable view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

Unlike any bar I've ever been in-- drinking right next to the Taos solar DJ booth. The view toward the building is amazing. We walked here from our b&b (stayed at the Cottonwood Inn) and it only took about 15 minutes. It is a road with some traffic, so the walk might not be for everyone. Still, after several drinks enjoying the spectacular view (we didn't eat here, although they did offer food) we were glad we only needed to walk to get home.
