We get it – being single in Albuquerque sucks!
The problem is that, the longer you’re out of the dating game, the harder it can be to get back on the horse …
However, wouldn’t it be so much easier and fun if you knew where to go AND what to do?
In this article, Datermeister doesn’t wanna brag about being your hero or anything just yet. But we’ve got a bumper article on the 7 best places to meet singles in Albuquerque that we think you’re going to love.
We’re going to show you where you need to go, what you need to do – and why there are better dating apps than Tinder.
Ready to start sharing those legendary New Mexico sunsets with a special someone? Let’s do this!
1. Best nightclubs for Albuquerque singles
The Albuquerque singles scene comes alive at the weekends when the clubs open. If you want to meet someone who might be a tad wild and who loves a dance, nightclubs are your best option.
As long as you’re confident and have some moves to bust, there’s no reason why you can’t meet someone on the dance floor!
The great thing about clubs is that anyone you get dancing with is already feeling fantastic. It’s simply up to you to make them feel even more fantastic.
It’s not even like you need to work hard, too. Just wear your best clothes, smile, be positive, strut your stuff on the dance floor – and start grooving with someone who catches your eye.
Before you know it, you could be sharing a passionate kiss beneath the glittering lights. Smooth.
Here are the 2 best nightclubs in Albuquerque.
Effex Night Club (420 Central Ave SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102): Albuquerque doesn’t actually have too many out and out nightclubs, but if you love your dance music, Effex is the place to go. They have a DJ, sweet drink deals and the place is always busy at the weekends.
Old Town (400 San Felipe St NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104): Like a bit of salsa? Then you’ll love Old Town, a sexy nightclub located in one of the best Albuquerque neighbourhoods for singles. They have DJ’s, a smouldering Latin vibe – and lots of hot singles looking for a salsa partner. What more could you want?!
2. Best Bars in Albuquerque For Singles
Sometimes, you don’t always want to hit the clubs. We get that. And sometimes you want to meet someone before you hit the clubs.
Singles in Albuquerque can often be found in the bars. If you plan to meet someone new at a bar, here are some tips:
1) Don’t go too late. If you arrive after 10pm, people are already pretty drunk in bars. They’re either ready for a club or bed!
2) Be noticeable. Smile at people! Don’t shy away in a corner.
3) Go with friends. If there’s a hottie you like the look of but they’re sat with a group, you can’t just go over there if you’re on your own. That’s too weird! Round some friends up to increase your chances of interacting with new people.
Now that you know what to do,
Here are the 2 best Albuquerque singles bars:
Apothecary Lounge (806 Central Ave SE, Albuquerque, NM 87102): Earlier we mentioned how nice it would be to share the sunset with a special someone. That’s exactly what you can do here, a rooftop lounge that sits on top of the Hotel Parq Central! It’s got cocktails, smooth jazz and some very classy people.
Anodyne (409 Central Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102): This place has everything, from an ace jukebox to pool tables and pinball. It’s all set up for an evening of pure fun! Anodyne is perfect for Albuquerque singles over 40 but anyone can go here and have a fab time.
3. Concerts or Stand-up Comedy Shows Are Especially Some of the Best Places to Meet Singles in Albuquerque
Wouldn’t you just love to kiss a totally hot single while your fav band plays your fav song? While that’s not guaranteed to happen, concerts are a great place to meet hot Albuquerque singles.
Think about it: Concerts are PACKED with people who share your taste in music. Everyone’s in a good mood because of the songs, and you can start dancing with someone you find attractive.
The key is to catch someones eye and make sure they know you’re interested. Don’t bend their ear off during the concert but ask them if they fancy a drink post-show at the bar.
It can be THAT easy!
Comedy shows are also great places to meet singles in Albuquerque. This won’t be as simple as it is in a nightclub, but as long as you turn up with some friends and are open to talking to new people, there’s no reason why a bit of magic can’t happen.
Here is the best comedy club in town:
The Box Performance Space (114 Gold Ave SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102): As well as comedy shows, this joint also hosts open mike nights. It’s well worth keeping an eye on the listings as there’s always something going on. Just grab a friend and see where the night takes you. If you’re looking for creative Albuquerque singles with a sense of humour it’s well worth a go.
4. Best Places to Meet Albuquerque Singles Online
Wish there was an easier way to meet Albuquerque singles online than Tinder?
Here’s the deal with Tinder: It’s full of hot singles, and many of them are fun and up for chatting.
But when it comes to the crunch – when it’s time to meet – many go AWOL.
In other words, you get ghosted!
If you want to meet a more mature single who you make a genuine connection with, try these 2 sites instead:
Match.com: Free to register and use, this dating site doesn’t rely on complex algorithms to pair you up with people. Instead, it provides a series of questions that you bounce back and forth between the person you’re talking to. If you like the sound of their answers, you can then unlock their full profile.
EliteSingles.com: Wondering where all the lawyers and sophisticated professionals are? They’re on here, a dating site that’s dedicated to highly educated singles!
“But Datermeister! All that sounds good except there’s one problem: I wanna meet Catholic singles in Albuquerque.”
That’s not a problem. Both Match and EliteSingles let you refine your search. Whether you want to find Jewish singles in Albuquerque or Christian singles in Albuquerque, you can easily do that!
5. Gyms Are Great Places to Meet Albuquerque Singles
Gyms work for the same reasons that yoga classes and meditation classes work: The same people go to these places each week, which makes this super easy for you.
It’s not like a nightclub where you have 5 minutes to ask for someones number before they disappear into the night forever. All you need to do is start hitting the gym on the regular and you can soon start introducing yourself to new people.
All it takes at first is a simple introduction. As the weeks pass, you can progress the conversation before popping the big question: “Fancy a drink?”
The best thing is that anyone who works out or does yoga is guaranteed to be fit and healthy. Plus, going on the regular means you’ll get in better shape, too!

7. Learn a new skill (while meeting people with the same interests) or do “hobby dates”
Is there a new skill you really wanna learn? Bet you don’t have the time now that you’re hitting the Albuquerque singles scene.
But what if we told you that you can combine learning a skill with meeting someone new?
That’s right – all you need to do is join a class and see if you can’t pair off with someone after school!
Just make some space in your schedule, have a think about what you’d like to learn and sign up for classes.
All in all, the secret to meeting someone new is being proactive and being confident.
Being proactive is easy – use the fact that you might meet the woman or man of your dreams as motivation.
And confidence? That will come the more you put yourself out there. Buy some smart new clothes, train up at the gym and own the Albuquerque singles scene!
