What is a bodega?

The term ‘bodega’ has different meanings in different places. It generally refers to a cellar or shop selling wine and food in Spanish-speaking countries. Within hispanic communities in the US - especially in New York - it has come to mean a corner convenience store.

bəˈdeɪɡə/ Noun

Paladar’s bodega sells an eclectic range of Latin American wines, spirits, coffees and chocolate at attractive retail prices.

You can also dine in the bodega at our VIP Chef’s Table. This is ideal for small parties of between eight and ten guests to enjoy lunch or dinner right in front of the kitchen pass counter, with a clear view into the theatrical kitchen. Please call or email us to book this table.

We also offer our wine and food pairing dinners, and occasional wine and spirit masterclasses in the Bodega. We are planning a rum masterclass in late January 2019 and the next wine dinner will be in February 2019.
