When you perch atop the historic La Fonda Hotel, on the Santa Fe Plaza, your Bell Tower Bar margaritas come with a view that stretches from the Sangre de Cristos to the Jemez Mountains. At sunset? Spectacular. But that’s not the only high point with summery cocktails near the Plaza. On weekends, catch a DJ rocking the elevated stage at the Coyote Cantina, atop the famous Coyote Cafe—itself a quintessential Santa Fe stop.
