The Capitol Bar, or "The Cap" as it's known to locals, was built in 1896 as a showcase saloon for a wine merchant in the mining town of Socorro, NM, just about an hour south of Albuquerque, NM. Since then it's also been used as a jail and court, a speakeasy and a classroom. This place is beloved by locals and stepping in is like stepping into the past. A true Western saloon, perfectly preserved and waiting for you to belly up!
