Bodega is the perfect haven for every over-25 who just can't find a decent bar. Our feel is 1920's speakeasy meets jazz club, with heavy drapes and deep leather sofas to offer a welcome that's akin to a long hot bath after a rough day. Discover a rare find of mature drinkers and enjoy chilled-out evenings of table service and conversation against a background of cool nu-jazz – played at just the right volume. Come in, relax and choose a bottle from the extensive wine list or select a specialty beer, and you'll find it's midnight before you know it. The weekend evening turns lively with the introduction of groove-led non-commercial music for you to enjoy. Why would you ever leave...?

This place is definitely shooting for the "older" patron. But I kind of like that. Even at busy times, it is relaxed and refined. at least by Watford standards that is...
I have been here a few times now, and have always loved the well-stocked bar, great selection of food and excellent service.
My only gripe with the service is that it can be a little tough to get the servers attention....more
Went along on a monthly Wednesday themed as a Cuban night. I am not sure which part of Cuba. The music played was jazz and despite the 2 piece group that played well, the service was very poor and when I asked to speak to the manager, she was as helpful as a brick wall. I offered advice to help but was greeted with a surly expression and the buzz fell flat on the night. Don't bother if you...more
Bodega is Spanish for cellar which this place resembles in many ways except that there are no stairs (well only those that take you up to the toilets) and that you tend not to get charged £3 for a lime and lemonade in Madrid.
I was saw some live music there which was nice, but as is the way at Bodegas, people's attention finally caves in to the myriad of half burned candles around the room....more
