Just like the rest of Albuquerque Downtown has come a long way in the past decade. There have been renovations on old historic buildings and houses which make the area the perfect place to buy. Investors are also snagging up old homes and bringing a new life to Downtown ABQ.
There are Downtown ABQ staples like the Kimo Auditorium where you can catch concerts, classic moves, and local film festivals year-round. One new addition to Downtown ABQ is the annual Summerfest. This event is fun for all ages with live music, art displays, local beer gardens, and food trucks galore. Summerfest has brought a vibrant life to downtown like no other event before, it’s a must (even if you don’t live in Downtown ABQ).
A Perk of living in Downtown ABQ is that you will be able to walk to everything. There are restaurants, breweries, a movie theater, and music venues that line the historic Route 66 aka Central. You can even catch a classic display of lowriders cruisingCentral on a Sunday evening while sipping a cocktail on the patio at Sister Bar.
The condos popping up in the area are new, modern, and affordable. The average home value currently sits around $250,000 and houses stay on the market for about 16 days. So check out these listings today, they will not last long!!
Downtown ABQ has so many amenities! Living here you’ll never lack things to do and see. Two things that have popped up in the community over the past years have been huge hits within the entire city of Albuquerque are The Rail Yards Market and Downtown Growers Market. These two events are hosted in the warmer months of the year, usually early spring to late fall. Both of these weekend events happen every weekend and bring together local artists, vendors, and farmers together to offer a variety of foods & goods. The markets also have live music events, Chile Roasting when it’s in season, yoga and they’re both family-friendly (furry family welcome too).
On a larger scale, Summerfest happens once a year and is so much fun. The streets of Downtown ABQ are closed off and bring awareness to all ABQ has to offer as far as local art, food, music, beer, businesses. Bring the family and your camera, because this event is fun for all!

The Craft Brew and local libation scene have exploded in New Mexico. Some of the best beers in the Country can be found right here in little ol’ downtown Albuquerque. Although Santa Fe Brewing Company would be considered the grandfather of craft beer, Marble Brewing would be considered the Daddy of the NM Local Beer industry. You’ll have access to Marble Brewery 111. They host annual events that rock the community, have live music and local food trucks on a regular basis.
Another favorite hot spot in the downtown scene is Sister Bar. The food and beverages are par none in the Downtown ABQ scene. They have weekly drink/food specials and regular events and let’s not forget a stellar pinball and arcade game collection.
Not only is the Brewery scene blowing up but the local coffee scene is amazing! You’ll have so many choices to choose from you’ll be in bean heaven.
