Downtown Albuquerque is alive with arts and entertainment seven days a week. With the highest concentration of concert and performance spaces in the state, Downtown is New Mexico’s premier destination for live music, theatre, comedy, dance and performance art.
Central Avenue is lined with exceptional performance spaces, ranging from modern lounges to historic theatres. The KiMo Theatre is not only an exceptional example of pueblo deco architecture, it also features national touring theatre and music productions throughout the year. On the opposite side of town the Sunshine Theatre fills weekly with lively crowds enjoying cutting edge band and touring acts from around the world. Smaller, more intimate venues line Central Avenue offering everything from upbeat nightclubs to relaxed pool-halls, and everything in between.
If you’re looking for something culturally unique in Albuquerque, make your way over to Gold Avenue and the National Institute of Flamenco. Experience the passion and excitement of traditional Spanish culture found only in the movements and expression of Flamenco. Perhaps comedy is more your style. Look no further than the Box Theatre’s rotating performances of comedic theatre and improv comedy.
