Flash back to the long gone days of the Prohibition Era. Often cloaked behind the guise of a restaurant, the ever so popular "speakeasy" was a place where one could imbibe in their favorite alcoholic beverage while enjoying the posh atmosphere, live entertainment, and elegant food. Vernon's Hidden Valley Steakhouse, "thus far one of Albuquerque's best kept secrets," according to Gil Garduno local restaurant critic, brings back the appeal and ambiance of the long gone speakeasy in new world splendor. Unassuming and hidden behind a large black wooden door in the a corner of the Village Shops @ Los Ranchos, under a red light (only illuminated when open), Vernon's boasts a cozy and intimate dining area with slick black diamond plaster walls, rich red planked ceilings. Vernon's Black Diamond Lounge, in the heart of Albuquerque's North Valley is the premier venue for live music in Albuquerque. The Black Diamond Lounge is home to the city's most popular acts, new discoveries and special surprise visits from touring national acts. With it's sparkling black diamond walls and red velvet curtains, we will lure you into a lovely den of artisan cocktails, savory appetizers, intoxicating music and an egalitarian entry fee to boot.
