Is There a Gayborhood in Albuquerque?

Albuquerque, New Mexico - Apple Maps

from Apple Maps

The largest city in the Land of Enchantment has plenty of good reasons to visit, particularly among the state’s lesbian and gay visitors. Like the other major gay destinations in New Mexico – Santa Fe and Taos – Albuquerque has long had a strong following among artsy types, outdoors enthusiasts, feminists, New Agers, and others who often share interests with gay and lesbian travelers.

The gay Albuquerque scene is low-keyed but visible. There’s no single neighborhood in town with an overwhelming gay presence, although the funky Nob Hill district, near the campus of the University of New Mexico and bisected by Historic Route 66, has the greatest concentration of shops, restaurants, and bars popular with the GLBT community.

Albuquerque is really the only city in the state with specifically gay nightlife. There are handful of gay bars and clubs, plus numerous gay-owned or gay-friendly B&Bs and inns.
