Santa Fe Cafe: Good Fun, Good Price

Located in a quiet corner off of the University of Maryland's campus, Santa Fe Cafe is at the heart of nightlife for students in College Park.

Nightly drink and food specials make this southwestern-themed bar and restaurant a great place for students to chill with friends and have fun on the typical college kid's budget. Both the under 21 and 21+ crowds can enjoy the fun of this hangout spot, especially on "wing night" Wednesdays where hot wings are only 50 cent each until 9 p.m.

On most nights, the bar offers $1 drinks until 9, just in time for the crowd to get ready to rock to the sounds of a DJ or local artists. Everyone from the popular Gym Class Heroes to UMD's own Black Diamond have graced the stage of this popular attraction, making Santa Fe Cafe a local celebrity.

Wednesday through Friday, long lines can be seen outside the place locals have affectionately coined "The Fe." When the weather warms up, most enjoy the full service bar in fresh air of the Fe's outdoor patio.

So if you're ever in the College Park area, enjoy a night out on the town at one of the best hangouts in the neighborhood.

Hours: Mon 5pm-2am; Tue-Thu 11:30am-2am; Fri-Sat 11:30am-3am
