This historic adobe landmark, across the street from the famous San Francisco de Asis Mission Church in Ranchos de Taos, hosted countless weddings and dances over the decades—including parties with guests like Dennis Hopper and Ricky Nelson—but fell into disrepair. German cosmetics manufacturer Martina Gebhardt brought it back to life and reopened it in 2012, and now the hall is a center of community life again. In a classic Taos setting of warm adobe walls, bare beams, and wood floors, Chef Erica Miller blends international dishes and New Mexican flavors in offerings like enchiladas, seafood pasta, and outstanding burgers. There's a full-to-bursting pastry case and, if you want to make a night of it (which I definitely recommend), a new oak dance floor for live music and two-step and tango nights.
