Cheers & Welcome to Shelby House, Santa Fe’s premier multi-use event space located in what was once a private home. We are steps away from the Historic Downtown Plaza—just head south from the SE corner of the Plaza and you’ll find us a about a block and a half away.
Shelby House hosts private parties, charitable events, pop-up retail, workshops, and art exhibitions.
Inside Shelby House, you’ll find Spirited Goods which features a carefully curated selection of products celebrating the cocktail & mocktail hour, entertaining at home, and gifts for all occasions.
Spirited Goods is open Monday-Saturday, from 10am-6pm, and Sunday from 12-5pm. Shop hours change seasonally.

Shop Dog Oz
Shop Dog Oz is a retired assistance dog and the official greeter of Shelby House. Like a lot of Santa Feans, Oz may be retired but he still loves to work and stay busy (when he’s not napping). If you happen to drop your glasses or your keys, he’ll pick them up for you in exchange for a smile and a thank-you (and maybe a little treat). Oz keeps the water bowl replenished and the snack jar full for Shelby House’s canine visitors. Oz may be retired, but he is a proud graduate of the Assistance Dogs of the West Program.
