NEIN – I live in the bay area but I have an Arizona issued Identification card. I haven't been to Santa Fe in years and thought I'd go out with some friends for a drink. When I went to the Cowgirl, I was let in at the door, appropriately carded, and paid the cover. Inside I ordered a drink and was carded again, no problem, as I am of legal age, but shockingly enough I WAS THEN TURNED DOWN and accused of having a fake ID? I then suggested that they look it up, that it was a legit ID or to even scan it. The bartender, who then was apparently already intoxicated and belligerent, stated she couldn't, telling me to not have attitude, sure, whatever, I was just trying to get her to cooperate. I then left the bar and was confronted by another intoxicated waiter on the ersatz dancefloor where I was told to leave, unless I wanted to "hang out" but could not "sip off anybody's drink." Just then I turned to find some burly bouncer idiot in front of me. He started calling me "BABY GIRL" and then had enough nerve to falsely accuse me of having a fake handstamp, as if I took the time to get someone to transfer theirs to my hand. I don't think I would have even gone out of my way to do so to gain entrance to the Cowgirl even if I was underage, I mean, come on.
The bouncer then made a joke that if I "even graduated high school" I must have had a time machine. What a bunch of jerks. I never once raised my voice yet after I left, I was told that the manager, bouncer, and doorman called my friend and I "crazy bitches" outside on the patio. Way to be completely disrepectful, guys.
This place is only for compliant tourists, I guess. Ask around Santa Fe, the locals will tell you they aren't THAT into the Cowgirl. There is a lot of unnecessary attitude here. I've never in my life been accused of having a fake ID. I've never been called "baby girl" repeatedly by a bouncer. I've never had a bartender slur so meanly in my face. Also, I saw a cook picking his teeth with his hands.
Cowgirl kitsch, live music and a sprawling patio make this a favorite watering hole for both tourists and locals. – The Scene
The expansive patio, cozy bar and friendly cowboy-hat-clad waitresses stay true to the theme. Outside, steel wagon wheels, chili pepper wreathes, hanging lanterns and tin cut-outs remind you that you're in the Wild West. Inside, the rustic bar and dining room walls are covered with black and white photos of cowgirls in their glory. A fireplace by the bar keeps things cozy in the winter.
In a town where nightlife is almost non-existent, it's no wonder the Cowgirl is beloved by tourists and locals alike. During the day, tourists stop for barbecue and beer before heading back to the Plaza. At night, locals pack the place for live music and little or no cover charge. Bands play on the patio when it's warm and in a cramped bar area in the winter. The bar offers twelve beers on tap, seven margaritas and twenty tequilas and mezcals.
Great drinks! – The food at the Cowgirl is very so-so, but it's a fun place with fantastic margaritas. Definitely worth a try!
Cow Girl Good Eats – My family and I had a wonderful lunch. We will be back!!
Cowgirls have more fun. – Sat at the bar and had a great dining experience.The drinks were solid,the ribs and burgers were tasty and filling.The bartenders rock!! Very friendly despite being busy.Great value.
The Cowgirl is Good Times – On the average, Cowgirl is a fun place in Santa Fe. At night, at least, many cute servers, and the atmosphere is laid back and very Santa Fe, if you get my drift. I've never had a bad time there.
