You’ll find La Bodeguita hidden behind a back door, and the speakeasy vibes continue once you step inside. A popular local spot, La Bodeguita mixes Puerto Rican, Spanish, and Cuban flavors in a dimly lit, private setting. It’s a cool place to have drinks—the bar is stylish, with a couple of glass ceiling pendants and black and white tiles, and they have live music on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Settle in and start with the puntitas de miñón en reducción de oporto (mignon tips in a port reduction) and the croquetas or patatas bravas and a bottle of wine. Then, try their cocas españolas, a Spanish flatbread—the ropa vieja or serrano options are both excellent.
