    About this Property

    The historic Legal Tender Saloon has been a beloved northern New Mexico destination since the late 1800s. Located on a 1.84-acre commercially zoned lot in the storied village of Lamy, the property overlooks and collaborates with the Mission Revival–style depot built for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway in 1909, which still serves Amtrak’s Southwest Chief twice a day and the tourist Sky Railway train. Historically significant and completely updated—including a restored façade—the 7,331-square-foot stone and frame structure offers four dining areas, a “saloon” with seating at an 1884 Brunswick oak bar, four baths, an office, and a large patio with views of the train tracks and depot. The spacious commercial kitchen includes walk-in pantries, freezers, refrigerators, prep and work areas, commercial-grade sinks and appliances, employee facilities, and wine storage. The business and real estate are completely turnkey—all equipment and furnishings conveying—and all licenses are in place. A full liquor license is also available for sale. The creative acting chef and co-restaurateur also manages the famed Bar Castaneda in Las Vegas, New Mexico, named one of the 10 Favorite Restaurants of 2021 by Forbes. The owner lovingly refurbished the property to allow for a possible RV park and the reconstruction of the famed El Ortiz hotel and Harvey House. This is an outstanding opportunity to continue the tradition of fine dining in one of Santa Fe’s most legendary destinations.
