    About this Property

    Authentic and historic - where the pavement ends and the west begins. The Legal Tender Saloon and Eating Establishment has been a local love in Northern New Mexico since the late 1800s. Located on a large commercially zoned lot consisting of 1.84 acres centered in the Village of Lamy, the property overlooks and also collaborates with the former Santa Fe Southern Railway. This short-line railroad also operates as a tourist railroad now called Sky Railwaycarrying passengers between Lamy and Santa Fe. The Lamy Amtrak Depot, across the street off Old Lamy Trail, is a Mission Revival-style depot built by the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway in 1909 and still serves the Southwest Chief train twice a day. The 7,331 sq.ft. historically significant and completely updated stone and frame structure was originally built thereafter. There are 4 formal dining areas and a bar room with additional bar seating surrounding theoriginal 1884 Brunswick oak bar. There are 4 bathrooms (men, women, and employees), an office, 1 fireplace, and a completely restored facade. The commercial kitchen is very large with walk-in pantries and freezers/refrigerators, prep areas, work areas, commercial grade sinks, appliances, employee facilities, and wine storage. There is a large open-air outdoor patio fronting the property, overlooking the train tracks and depot as well as an entry portal. The business and real estate are completely turnkey (all equipment, furnishings, etc. conveying) with all licenses in place. A full liquor license is available for sale. The creative and well-respected chef and co-restauranteur manages the famous and long-respected Legal Tender & Saloon, as well as the Bar Castaneda in Las Vegas, NM - Forbes "10 Best Restaurants of 2021". The saloon and eatery currently operate limited hours but are available to seat 325 people and cater events. The owner lovingly refurbished the property with drawings for a possible RV park behind the Eatery and Saloon, as well as drawings to reconstruct the infamous El Ortiz Hotel. This is a great opportunity to continue the tradition of fine dining in one of Santa Fe County's most legendary destination properties.
