Fans of Chardonnay and Merlot alike will flock to this Santa Monica bar, where vino is the star no matter your grape preference. Choose from a hefty list of light, medium and full-bodied reds and whites to clink glasses on a casual first date, or order pizza and apps along with your wine for a longer night out. As for happy hour—they've got that, too. Stop by on a Monday, when prices are slashed all day (and night) long.

This is a really cute date spot or even girls chill night out spot. They have a variety of wines and small plates. Their flatbreads and pizzas are delicious! They're not over priced and they have great happy hours. Each day they have a different theme, Sunday is board game night for example. They recently turned it into a coffee shop during the day and it's full of people working on their laptops.

I love their Syrah and Merlot wine as I'm a fan of full body wines, and these definitely hit the mark.  A carafe is about $16 and a bottle is $20; you can't really beat that at such a great wine bar.  I also took the opportunity to try their $2 taco specials.  They have 3 types: carnitas, chicken, and potato.  The chicken was dry as expected so just go for the carnitas!


Love this place. Salads, pizzas, and cheese plate is the best. Plus Wednesday they have $20 wine bottles!


Bodega Wine Bar is the absolute perfect place to meet up with a friend for happy hour. Not only do they have a regular nightly happy hour from 4-7 & after 10, but they also have nightly specials on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sundays. Happy hour all night on Mondays. Taco Tuesdays. $20 bottles of wine on Wednesday. And board games on Sunday. The location is very hip and parking isn’t terrible – which in Santa Monica is a huge plus. I tried the tacos, bruschetta, cheese board, and margherita pizza and everything was really good. Not only was it tasty, but the portion sizes were very fair which in my book is always a good thing. Only complaint I have is that our waitress was not very attentive towards the end of the night leading to a very long wait time for the bill – which made us get hungry and thirsty again so let’s just say too many rounds of food/wine then occurred. Maybe that was done on purpose? Aside from that… keep the wine flowing and keep the bruschetta comin’ Bodega.

Great neighborhood wine bar with an amazing Wine Wednesday deal (half off all bottles of wine). They have a bunch of happy hour deals throughout the week too including a good Taco Tuesday and Sunday game night. The wine can be on the pricer side but there are also affordable options too. 

Great place to try different wines with some appetizers.  Also fun to go here first before heading out with the crew for the night.
