New ABQ venue offers ‘one-stop shop’ — and a waterfall

The pandemic has complicated events for many people wanting to celebrate life’s milestones.

The founder of a new Albuquerque event center is hoping to ease some of that complication by putting a new venue on the menu.

Enchanted Falls Event Center, at 3771 NM Highway 528, opened in early August.

Owner Ben Hernandez said the idea for opening an event center stemmed from the shuttering of similar venues during the pandemic.

“We saw an opportunity and a need and we jumped on it,” he said.

However, Hernandez isn’t a novice when it comes to events.

After retiring in the mid-2000s, Hernandez made his way back to New Mexico and soon before starting Lucky Boyz Limousine, All American Limo and AA Events and Tents.

Though Hernandez has been in the event business for more than a decade, he said the new event center is the first time he has had a permanent space dedicated to hosting events.

“This just kind of falls in line with what we do, it’s just I’ve never done it in a building that we occupied,” he said.

Hernandez said the event center is a “one-stop shop” since it has everything needed to host an event from silverware to decorations to transportation through the limousine businesses.

The venue, which formerly operated as the Falls Restaurant, boasts a man-made waterfall, an outdoor area with a gazebo, a full bar and space to hold events for about 400 people.

While the event center is open for bookings, Hernandez said it is still a “work in progress.”

He said he is still working on getting the kitchen fully operational so the center can provide catering as an option for events, but events can be held without using the in-house catering services.

Enchanted Falls Event Center is available for rent every day of the week and can be rented hourly or for an entire day.
