The Amador

Project Description



The Amador is a project unique to the City of Las Cruces. As the gateway to the downtown area, the project aims to provide a venue for tourists and locals alike to enjoy food, drinks, music and more all at one location. The Amador project is comprised of two buildings. The main 14,176 sf building includes a large restaurant, a martini bar, a skybar and a taproom. The facility provides a much needed gathering hub for the city and aims to entice visitors of all ages to gather together in one location. The sky bar is not only the only sky bar in the city, but it also overlooks a large courtyard with vibrant landscaping and performance stage. As one of the largest performance venues the city has to offer, the Amador is sure to become one of the most popular gathering spots in the city.

The second building of the project is the city’s Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, “Visit Las Cruces.” The facility houses CVB staff and provides information to out of town travelers about all the wonderful sites and activities the City of Las Cruces has to offer. The new CVB lobby embraces the view to the Oregon Mountains with a double-height, slanted curtain wall glazing system. The CVB is approximately 5,968 square feet, and also serves as the gang-restroom and storage for the main building.
