Small plates to share and great selection of wine and beer

Went for Happy Hour specials as part of a large group, so I was able to try a number of options from the menu. Their wine list is quite broad, and they also offer a good number of bottled beers if wine isn't your thing. Appetizers are nicely sized and actually fairly generous (each could serve... read more

I used to love going to Bodega. Yes, it is a wine bar but not in the snooty way some wine bars can be. They have very affordable glasses and bottles of wine and also serve beer. They don't have a full liquor license so no vodka, tequila, etc. I have never had a problem getting a table, but if... More

My friend and I came here for a drink after work and stayed hours after we originally planned. It was really nice inside Bodega- low lighting, candles and comfy bar stools. We sat at the bar and even chatted with the friendly bartenders. I came here because I was out of town when my good friend had her birthday here.... More

Bodega is a perfect place to unwind with friends, meet new people, and enjoy some great food, wine and beer. It's a wonderful lounge with a fun staff, too.

Bodega is a really nice wine bar with great atmosphere and delicious bar food. They also have pretty good happy hour that you can catch every day from 5 to 7 p.m., but even regular prices are very reasonable.

Excellent food (loved the chopped salad) and good wine selection for a totally acceptable price. Just a little too dark inside.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
