About Us

Close to everywhere, near to the heart of locals and visitors alike.

A landmark in Albuquerque, Cooperage Restaurant has been locally owned and operated since 1976. We pride ourselves on preparing exceptional food delivered with outstanding, friendly service. The Cooperage is a destination worth driving to for lunch, dinner and live music where you’ll have a memorable experience each and every time.

But we’re more than just the food we serve. Whether you’re joining us for lunch or dinner, drinks or live music, you can expect outstanding service, warm hospitality, and an environment that will take you back to the days when people engaged with each other instead of electronic devices.

Looking for a space for your next corporate or social event? The Cooperage can accommodate your group whether it’s a holiday party, luncheon, bridal/baby shower or wedding reception. Have your own space? Let us cater your next event.

Committed to our Community

For 40 years, the Cooperage has been proud to be part of the greater Albuquerque community. We are locally owned and operated, and proud to offer our support to local organizations and music programs like the NM Jazz Workshop.

Our lounge area is a showcase space for local musicians, and our dance floor is perfect for showing off your moves in a fun, inviting space. We’re excited to be the host of concerts in conjunction with Neal Copperman & Amp Concerts.

More than just Albuquerque’s longest locally-owned restaurant

Cooperage Restaurant is one of the largest caterers in town, ready to bring the charm and great food locals have come to love right to your business or home.

The Cooperage restaurant is also your salsa destination every Saturday night. Live salsa bands perform including Son Como Son.
