During our pub crawl around Bushwick, we hit several spots. Our favorite of the day was the Bodega Wine Bar, located at 24 St. Nicholas Avenue. Bodega Wine Bar offers a solid selection of wine and beer, in addition to light fare, such as chacuterie, cheese and sandwiches nightly, as well as lunch/brunch starting at 11:30am. The beer selection includes 12 taps and another two dozen bottled beers. The selection rotates frequently. The wine offerings numbered around two dozen (including two wines on tap!). What we found extraordinary about the wine offerings was that anything available by the glass was also available by the bottle and vice versa. We can’t remember any other wine bar where that occurred.
For those who don’t live in the immediate area or in nearby Williamsburg, the location is a bit out-of-the-way, but it is well worth the trip to this spot. We plan to return soon. Bodega Wine Bar will be the anchor spot for any Bushwick beer bar crawl or wine bar crawl. Two photos below.
