Happy Hour on the Patio

Get here early for great happy hour specials. The sangria and appetizers are amazing. The happy hour is longer than most, too.

Met friends for great night out - a Wednesday - with half price wine - couldn't be better. Only sampled the tapas but all were good - deserts were good especially the raspberry churros and the triffle with chocolate mouse. Hope to try the paella next time!

La Bodega is a cut up from the usual Mexican restaurant. They serve wonderfully beautiful tapas and have a fine selection of alcoholic beverages, wines, and beers. It's on the pricey side, but the experience is worth the trip.

Great food in cool building in the historic Warehous/Boulevard District. Fun and friendly staff with hands on, professional manager. The food is eclectic and terrific! Especially the tapas! Daily specials. Tons of fresh ingredients. A wonderful experience. Ask for the kitchen table when you book if you have a large party.

First experience and will be returning soon. Short Rib Pizza and Sangria by the pitcher was a great way to spend a sunny Friday afternoon.

We eat here at least once every American Royal Horse Show. It stays open late and we can get a good meal after the show. And because it is tapas...we can order the right amount of food for a late night. Great wine list too. We had a wonderful Spanish red. Great staff, great prices.

From someone who lives in KC- this is the best tapas place you will find here! They have a great happy hour during the week with many of their tapas and drinks on special. Order the sangria- you won't regret it.
