About

The Bodega – 24 Saint Nicholas Avenue (corner of Troutman St.) – Brooklyn, NY.

We have an ever changing wine and beer list with 20 wines available by the glass/bottle, 14 draft lines (12 beer and 2 wine) and an all A-rated bottled beer list. We also serve food – fresh cut charcuterie, cheese, and pressed sandwiches nightly, as well as lunch/brunch daily from 11:30AM.

Owners Ben Warren and Gina Leone live in Bushwick and are Spain freaks.

“We lived in Seville for a little while and fell in love with Spain. They have more bars per square foot than anywhere else in the world. When we moved to Bushwick we definitely missed our bars. We liked that the bar and café culture tied into peoples daily life there. In Spain bodega means ‘wine cellar’ and here it’s slang for the corner store where you hang out, visit, buy beer, bread, twinkies, etc… We wanted to open a place where people could do the same, chill and hang, drink a beer…people need bars!”

    Perhaps this is a dumb question but do you have any interesting non-alcoholic drinks for non-drinkers who go there w/ their wine-loving friends?

    • April 18, 2010 3:05 pm

      Hey Cassandra – we have Pellegrino (plain, aranciata, and limonata) but I don’t know if you would classify these as very interesting :)
      Your question raises a good point – we should get more adventurous on the non-alcoholic drink tip…if you have any suggestions, or if you’ve come across a drink or brand that rocks please let us know and we’ll stock/mix it, we’ll be looking too.

    How about a gluten free beer. There are some great Belgian one’s (Green, I think) that are for sale here in the US, that are as good as regular beer.

    Looking forward to visiting your Bodega, when I go to visit my daughter in Brooklyn…

    Salute!!

    WELCOME! WELCOME! This neighborhood was in dire need of a relaxing, European corner spot offering a counterbalance to the heavy industrial air. So exciting that the wine lists changes regularly — a perfect reason to frequent your place as the seasons and moods change. I’m bringing friends there tonight and for many more nights to come, I’m sure.

    Mil gracias,
    Isabel
