Located just a minute from the Market Square, The Bodega has been going for over 18 years and has always been focused on up-and-coming music acts, with The Libertines, The XX, Arctic Monkeys and The White Stripes all having played there.
There’s a bar downstairs, a gig room upstairs and a beer garden out back that catches the end of the day sunshine. They have 10 beer taps, including four craft and three ale pumps and a fridge full of bottles and cans, which is changed weekly. Their aim is to let you dip your feet into the wonderful world of craft beer to see if that’s what you like, or if you’re just curious to try new things.
Their plans for Craft Beer Week include welcoming Wild Beer Co for a tap takeover and on Saturday 24 June they will be opening early for a day filled with the cities finest locally-sourced acoustic acts.
