Property Description

Rare opportunity to own a grand piece of Taos’ history, present and future! The Iconic Old Martina’s Hall is ready for her next chapter. So much more than incredible architecture and history; this Property features 10,000 square feet of beautifully and expertly restored restaurant, bar, catering and kitchen space, an amazing dancehall and stage, VIP rooms and patios. The dancehall, with its high ceilings and massive viga beams has hosted many concerts, dances, weddings and special events. This historic adobe landmark, across the street from the famous San Francisco de Asis Mission Church in Ranchos de Taos pre-dates the historic church and was built in 1769. This property was part of the original Plaza Vieja and was built as a fortress when the Spanish Governor required all Settlers to live inside the adobe walls for protection against raiding Parties. The original Plaza enclosed over two acres in order to hold all the community’s livestock in case of an attack. This property is being offered on .9 acres of that original development. A New Mexico Liquor license and all of the restaurant and bar dining tables to convey with the sale, along with very high quality sound and lighting equipment for the large stage and historic dancehall. The Martinez family owned the property for generations and ran the notorious El Padrino Bar, made famous by the wild parties in the rowdy dancehall, often hosted and attended by Dennis Hopper and other notable figures in the 60’s and 70’s. It continued as THE live music and dancing venue until the early 2000’s. German cosmetic manufacturer and visionary entrepreneur Martina Gebhardt purchased the property in 2012 and saved it from disrepair with a massive overhaul of the entire structure and all its systems. A lover of Architecture and History, she made certain no corners were cut and no expense was spared in the renovations. The Craftsmanship is stunning. The solid wooden doors throughout are 4 inches thick to mimic the feel of the original Fortress. Inside, the stained glass, turned beams, graceful fireplaces and natural adobe mud walls create a warm cozy feeling inside the large spaces. There is nothing else like this in Taos or Northern New Mexico. This unusual and versatile property is turn-key and ready for Taos’ next Act. Continue the legacy and keep the music playing, boots sliding and glasses clinking for generations to come!
