So many special things going on - always call or check the website. Music, TV, friends, drinks, food - this place has it all. Live performances, movies, you name it. KTAOS has it in their sprawling complex!

This radio station does so much for the community, that I support them by going to events a few times a year. I have to say, the quonset/arched music area is a weird atmosphere. Feel like I'm in a bunker. The crowd, the food, and the convivial atmosphere almost make up for it. But...maybe we should launch a fundraiser to... More

While in Taos, we decided to check out KTAOS. We had looked on their website prior to departing for New Mexico, and it did not appear that they were having any live music on either of the days we would be in Taos. However, when we stopped in (around 4pm), the bartender mentioned that there would be a free performance... More

Great place to go grab some drinks & enjoy some good music. Live music almost every week ranging from reggae to rock. Incredible views of the Taos mountains, not to mention the glorious sunsets! Staff extremely courteous & attentive. Not to mention that you can see through the glass windows into the solar powered radio stations! Great place to bring... More

This is the greatest place ever! Live music events, the radio station, bar and food with both indoor and outdoor seating, great food and friendly staff. I was here for Holiday parties and had a blast! It's right down the hill from the ski resort too!

I have reviewed the Solar Center before and gave it a very positive review. Tonight, however, my opinion changed. We attended an concert event, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, and this review is not meant to disparage the orchestra. They were fabulous. The musicianship and the harmonies, unequaled. It was the management of the event that was a real disappointment. We... More

This place didn't interest me at all. A bar and not much more. They advertise some but nothing much to attract me again.

We listened to KTAO on 101.9 for an hour on our way into and out of Taos, as well as during our visit in town. We drove out to the radio station to see it broadcast in the glass booth in the restaurant, as well as spend some money on food there to give it some support. The solar panel... More

We came upon this place after finding other restaurants with long waiting times. It is a combo solar center, radio station, bar, restaurant and live music venue! We wandered through the long hallway and eventually found ourselves in a large open bar area. Seating included overstuffed chairs, couches, bar tables and an assortment of stools. We sat by the window... More
