Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op 163 Central Park Square
Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op began with a simple idea: create a brewery and taproom in Los Alamos as a place for the community to gather and enjoy great, locally brewed beer. They wanted to create a place for the members of the Los Alamos community to gather, relax in a comfortable atmosphere, read, talk, be alone or in a small group — and enjoy a beer. The vision evokes a small, neighborhood pub in England, where fresh beer is brewed on premises and is as much a vital part of the community’s spirit as is the togetherness of the gathering.
Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op is Los Alamos’ first craft brewery and the fourth cooperatively run brewery in the United States. They are focused on producing the highest quality, fresh, delicious craft beer, and serving it in the taproom and at local events. As a cooperative, their business practices reflect the values and needs of their member-owners and emphasize building the community and promoting its social and economic well-being. That’s why, in every decision we make, we weigh not only how it will affect the business, but also how it can better the community that we live in.

Rose Chocolates are hand made using the finest chocolate and freshest natural ingredients. The chocolates change with the seasons. Living in the high dessert offers challenges as well as ideal working conditions for chocolate. Winter is ideal for making molded chocolates. Summer is great for making hand-dipped truffles. Flavors vary according to the season, so feel free to contact them to find out what is currently developing in the kitchen.
Ruby K’s Bagel 1789 Central Avenue
Founded in 2005, Ruby K’s became a reality when it was recognized that Los Alamos was in need of serving for the ‘bagel-hungry’. Ruby wanted to ignite a spark in Los Alamos by providing a café with super-yummy food, a clever menu and a fun, ‘no-attitude’ atmosphere with top-notch customer service. With trademark touches like their signature mini muffins and homemade bagel chips along with the friendliest, most talented staff ever, it’s no wonder they’ve gained a loyal following. But Ruby K’s is much more than bagels, they carry delicious salads, sandwiches, panini’s, soups, desserts, and let’s not forget their smoothies.
