More Information

Bar Bodega is situated on Watford's busy high street parade. Surrounded by a number of well-known high street bars and nightclubs, Bodega puts itself above the rest by being the premium, independent venue. Local demographics are a broad range due to the attraction of the high street shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.
Being on the high street there are a number of reasons for people to go to Bodega but the large shopping centre is at the other end of the High Street and Watford Football Ground is less than a mile away. The paved area outside the venue has 2 large events a year which is a great footfall driver.
Currently operating as a late evening cocktail and wine venue that shows music/movies at weekends. Small food offer of Pizzas and smaller plates. No machines or sports due to the venue type.

The Bodega needs to be a chameleon style venue that offers coffees and pastries in morning for commuters and workers/hot desks. Need to have a unique high quality food offer to compete with the likes of The Florist and chain bar/restaurants. Lunch time bottomless brunches at weekends with great events, movie nights, comedy nights. Needs to have a real Unique Selling Point.

  • Live Sports

  • Catering Kitchen

  • Music Venue

  • Cask Ale

  • Foundation Tenancy

Trading Area & Facilities

The Bodgea has a great open drinking and dining space with a secret covered courtyard. A large/oversized open fire with multiple years worth of melted candle wax covering to bring a rustic and classic feel.
