Santa Fe’s oldest bar and restaurant quickly convinces you that yes, you do have fiery Spanish roots, even if you’re so fair of skin you make a Norwegian look swarthy. El Farol, in an 1835 Canyon Road adobe, is packed with atmosphere and live entertainment nightly ranges from blues, Latin and folk to Flamenco. Passion does its thing and people will get up and dance. You can eat in the restaurant first and you won’t be disappointed, or just head for the bar, perhaps ordering tapas and a glass from the great wine list. Some nights require a cover charge, and there’s a charge for the Flamenco dinner show.
