What is a bodega?
It’s a musty and hazy, low-key and friendly, dim and relaxing hygge-filled place to drink. The overwhelming smell of beer, the heavy tobacco fog, the low ceilings, wooden walls, dark brown interior and old posters, as well as the dim yellow lighting sets the scene for a charming atmosphere. It’s perfect for grabbing a beer, chatting to friends and befriending a stranger.
The bodega is home to an diverse group of people, including elders, students, and local characters alike, all here with the same purpose – to have a good time, at all times of day. Challenge your drinking buddy to a game of pool, Meyer (a dice game), billiards or darts to the music you’ve picked from the bodega’s vintage jukebox.
