Business Meetings & Corporate Events
In an often homogenous world of corporate events, Los Poblanos stands out as a productive and inspirational venue for forward thinking businesses and organizations. Conveniently located near downtown Albuquerque, we offer the tranquility of a rural setting with the modern conveniences for today’s business needs. Types of events include strategic planning, team building, executive retreats, planning charettes and seminars.
Retreats & Workshops
Los Poblanos is a destination for business and creative retreats and workshops. The serene, inspiring atmosphere invites focus and conversation. True to its original purpose as a platform for the arts and innovative thinking, we welcome organizations dedicated to art, music, and literature, non-profit organizations, architecture and design firms and groups focused on education, well-being and sustainability.
The success of our meetings were due in large part to the magical evening we shared at Los Poblanos and the marvelous food and wines consumed.

La Quinta Grand Ballroom
One of John Gaw Meem’s architectural masterpieces, the Grand Ballroom is undeniably one of the most stunning venues in New Mexico. The room’s parquet walnut floors, hand carved ceilings, decorative Spanish tile and monumental fireplace make it a magnificent setting for truly memorable events. Four sets of French doors open to the surrounding gardens, the Grand Portal and the Fireplace Terrace.
Gilpin Gallery in La Quinta
Opened in 1936 as Albuquerque’s first art gallery open to the public, the Gilpin Gallery is ideal for board meetings, retreats and cocktail receptions. The room features four large windows for natural light, original cork floors and a permanent exhibition of black and white photographs taken by Laura Gilpin depicting the ranch in the 1930s.
La Quinta Grand Portal
With magnificent views of the Sandia Mountains, the Grand Portal has a twenty-foot deep covered portico surrounding a Portuguese tiled swimming pool. The space features a true fresco painted by Peter Hurd depicting San Ysidro, the patron saint of farmers, and a series of small mural panels of pastoral farm scenes. The classical styling, size and grandeur create the perfect setting for al fresco dining and cocktail receptions.
Fireplace Terrace at La Quinta
Located just west of the ballroom, this octagonal pavilion features a dramatic outdoor fireplace and lattice between paired posts. With its adjacent lawn and lush gardens this space can be used for small meetings, intimate dining, ceremonies and afternoon teas.
The Hacienda, one of John Gaw Meems residential masterpieces, is perfect for more intimate weddings, rehearsal dinners and farewell brunches. The Spanish courtyard, dripping with Lady Banks’ roses and lush greenery, provides a dramatic backdrop with its Moorish fountain, massive carved doors and kiva fireplace. Family-style dining for up to 42 people in the Ventana Room offers beautiful views of the lotus pond, lawns and Sandia Mountains. And cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres in the coziness of the Sala Grande can elevate the experience of any small gathering.
The Barn Commons Meeting Room
Located approximately 100 yards away from the Hacienda, this multi-purpose meeting and multimedia room can be used for a variety of functions – from business meetings to yoga classes. Spacious and airy, this space can be used for groups of up to 16 people.
