The first authentic Spanish style tapas bar in KL- La Bodega opened back in 1999 at this location on Jalan Telawi in Bangsar. The original bar has now expanded to include a deli next door and lounge with jazz music above the deli. The original tapas bar expanded shortly after opening to add a new bistro dining section and more outdoor tables under large awnings on the pavement area. La Bodega has a warm, inviting atmosphere- with terracota tiled floors, dark wood furniture and an impressive large main timber bar with bar stools for casual drinks and tapas. The food emphasis is on the extensive selection of freshly prepared tapas- in addition there is a deli menu for more substantial meals if required. Selection of Spanish and South American wines- either by the glass or bottle, sangria, and full range of imported and draught beers on tap or bottles.
La Bodega has from the first opening days, always been one of my “must visit” destinations in KL- either for meeting friends in the evening for a bottle of wine and tapas, or taking a quick lunch at the next door Deli during the day.
