MOMO Lounge at the Monterey Motel


local spirits & craft cocktails

Enjoy small-batch craft spirits and cocktails from local distilleries, including Monterey Motel’s very own gin and vodka. Whether you want to enjoy a smooth tasting flight on the rocks or a handcrafted cocktail, our bartenders know their way around a jigger. Looking for a good place to start? Try our signature drink named after the motel’s founder, Norman—a simple, refreshing shandy made with our craft ale and hand-squeezed lemonade.

menus for every palate

We don’t like to be hemmed in, so we don’t have an onsite kitchen. Instead, we’ve partnered with top local restaurants to bring you the best variety of ABQ cuisine. Place an order for any of our ten partner restaurants (including six from El Vado, our sister motel) by scanning the QR code at your table and let delicious regional cuisine come to you.
