The Bodega Wine Bar, located in Santa Monica, at 814 Broadway (@ Lincoln), has been touted up and down Yelp.Com as the place to go for its 5-7 p.m. happy hour or just for an after work drink on a nice summer day, owing to its attentive and efficient service and casual, cozy and comfortable atmosphere. Playing cards and table games such as chess, checkers, Yahtzee, Boggle and Connect Four are also provided for the enjoyment of guests upon request any day of the week, with Sunday being reserved for Game night. Indeed, the uppermost point of The Bodega Wine Bar’s philosophy is to “Have fun. that’s the whole point of all this, isn’t it? we tried to create a casual, comfortable place for you to kick back and relax. the rest is up to you.”
