Bodega Taqueria y Tequila, a taco restaurant by day and speakeasy concept by night, recently celebrated the opening of its Coconut Grove restaurant. The new eatery is the brand’s fifth location and will feature a robust lineup of daily and nightly programming curated for locals and visitors. The highlight of the Coconut Grove location at 3419 Main Highway will be a three-part experience featuring a fast-casual taco shack, a speakeasy-style lounge, and a high-end mezcaleria designed for exclusive tasting experiences.
