Bodega 88 review image

Bodega 88

There are a few things that differentiate Bodega 88 from the other sports bars in the neighborhood. First of all, the TV situation here is pretty great (each booth has its own screen, and then there are multiple big screens over the bar). Secondly, the food is more exciting than what you’ll find at other spots nearby - the fries come with chimichurri and manchego cheese, and the fried calamari is glazed with Dominican honey. The space is about the size of a studio apartment, so we wouldn’t recommend bringing a group, but it’s a decent place to watch sports alone or with a friend, especially before 7pm when drinks are half off.
