Bodega Taqueria y Tequila, South Florida’s iconic taco joint by day and speakeasy concept by night, gears up for its highly anticipated Coconut Grove opening on Thursday, August 25th. Marking the brand’s fifth location to date, Bodega is set to open by introducing a robust lineup of daily and nightly programming curated for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.

“We are looking forward to fully immersing ourselves in The Grove community,” stated Jared Galbut, Co-Founder and President of Bodega Taqueria y Tequila. “By introducing Bodega’s new three-part concept, inclusive of an intimate mezcaleria, we’re providing a variety of unique experiences for everyone to enjoy. Our vision is that Bodega Coconut Grove will act as a gathering place where guests can indulge in great food, drinks, and entertainment every day of the week.”
TACO SHACK PROGRAMMING
Upon entering the 3,276-square-foot historic space, guests are greeted by the brand’s Taco Shack, which is characterized by the quintessential airstream trailer-turned-taco-truck that patrons have come to love and recognize. Here, in addition to the brand’s iconic menu, guests can look forward to “Margarita Monday”, featuring $5 Frozen Margaritas, available all day on Mondays. On Tuesdays, patrons can indulge in Bodega Taqueria y Tequila’s “Taco Tuesday” special, showcasing three for $11 Classic Tacos available in stores, as well as on the Bodega app until 5 p.m.
SPEAKEASY LOUNGE PROGRAMMING
Past the Taco Shack, through the graffiti-lined hallway, commissioned by legendary local artist MSG, and behind a disguised porta potty door, guests will find the speakeasy lounge featuring a jaw-dropping 30-foot skylight. Open daily from 4 p.m., patrons can enjoy signature cocktails, live music, and general entertainment.
Continuing the “Margarita Monday” specials, there will be $5 draft margaritas and $13 Build your own margaritas all night. Also taking place is the brand’s iconic “Live Music Wednesdays” presented by 818 Tequila showcasing local musical performances by rotating bands from 7 to 9 p.m. On Thursdays, patrons can come in for “Thursdays on Tap” and enjoy $1 select rotating Draft Beer until the keg is tapped. Lastly, taking place Saturdays and Sundays, guests can indulge in “Liquid Weekend Brunch”, featuring large format cocktails, beer buckets, and Mexican-inspired mimosas starting at 12 p.m. Following brunch, watch all of your favorite College Football and NFL teams, with continuing beer specials and half-off well drinks for ladies during the games.
The intimate mezcaleria is the latest addition to Bodega Taqueria y Tequila’s already dynamic concept. The mezcaleria is designed for serving high-end mezcal and tequila and offers exclusive tasting experiences in an authentic Mexican-designed space. The mezcaleria will be open from Wednesday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to close, with select nights featuring live musical performances by rotating one-man bands.
