Hello, I'm a DJ on Taos' KNCE 93.5FM, Stones&Bones: Sundays 10-Midnight, and I'm playing Blockheads new LP Bubblebath in it's entirety tonight. Just wondering if you all could spare a pair of tickets to giveaway on-air tonight. I'll be promoting the show and it would be great to be able to give away a pair of tickets. Thanks for your time.
Lots of people are bashing this bar on FB. Yay. Sister Bar totally deserves it!!!
Boycott Sister
It sounds like your staff needs to be educated on what a disability is. It's sad my brother has been to your establishment twice and called "weird" by staff and told they thought he was drunk because he has speech problems,(Because of his disability). He got kicked out on New Years Eve because he was dancing by his self. Guess what, he does that, he doesn't care what anyone else thinks of him. That's part of what makes him special. It's disgusting and sad that a huge city such as Albuquerque, which you would think would be diverse, has made my brother feel so isolated. We're from a small town in Louisiana and it is way more inclusive and understanding. Which is odd given the lovely stereotypes. He has Asperger's in case you want to educate your staff. The discrimination is pretty disgusting.
I hate to complain about sister because seems like they have a nice staff but I didn't do anything at all. I was just minding my business not doing anything but dancing on dance floor trying just have a good time by myself. I am not sure if other guy worked there or not but he called me creepy and pushed me. I didn't do anything. I am like just trying to enjoy myself know it wasn't much for event but I just wanted to have good time, I even tipped the bartender because my friend used be a bartender and know how tough it can be. Anyway sorry this is so long like I said I don't know what I did get kicked out, it just doesn't make sense to me and am sorry complaining so much I am just really upset. I do hope the staff has a good new year but like I said I just find it ridiculous I get kicked out for just trying to enjoy myself.
They're up!

I have never in my nearing 70 years of life gotten tossed out of a bar. Over the years, I have been a regular well paying customer at Sister Bar over a hundred times. I have performed there with my band. Having paid for our tickets Friday night, September 13, 2019, after spending more than a couple of hours at Sister Bar, 20 minutes before Baracutanga was scheduled to play, the manager asked us to leave after we complained that the servers had picked up our nearly full glasses of pinot grigio when we got up on the dance floor and returned to find the drinks gone. The manager at Sister bar said it is the "industry standard," that they are not responsible for unattended drinks. (That explains why so many fools dance with their sticky drinks in hand, sloshing onto the floor.) Well, no one ever told us we had to hold our drinks or rest a napkin (that was never supplied to us) over the drink so the servers would not take them. I have never witnessed such an industry standard. I suppose it was also industry standard to toss ticket paying loyal and well behaved customers out on the street because we politely and calmly complained. A proper response would have been, "Here is a complimentary glass of wine and a napkin. Please follow the protocol of industry standard and place the napkin over the drink if you leave it to go to the dance floor." No customer satisfaction here and buyer beware. Yes, we missed the 10 year celebration of our beloved Baracutanga. The worst of it was our friend Jesse and his companion were also tossed out for simply sharing the table with us. They had knowingly covered their drinks that remained on the table when we all got ejected together. We will never step foot in Sister Bar, that immensely rude denizen of drink thieves, again.

Only recommended for a good show worth paying the cover for, don't bother going if you just want to eat the food they pride themselves on. Just wanted to sit on the patio at 10pm on a Sunday night to have a burger. Door guy SUPER short and rude because we interrupted his cigarette and bro time(?). Would not let us sit on the patio to have a meal. No interest in the show that start 4 hours ago and only had an hour left that we looked up to see why we needed to pay $5 cover to eat food outside no where near the show. Never have we been charged to go have a meal on the patio at Sister. Downtown is dead. Sister is dead. And we have to pay to pay to eat?? I guess we won't be eating at this neighborhood spot anymore. We either go for a show and are happy to pay the cover OR we want to have a meal. So rarely both. Why turn paying customers away?
