Sangria in the city….
Before the arrival of La Bodega in 1999, the word “tapas” was unheard of in local venacular. Today La Bodega is the byword for Spanish cuisine. Descended upon by the post-work CBD crowd, the Pavilion KL outpost located on the corner of the mall’s F & B area is the place to people watch while caressing a glass of sangria and nibbling on a host of Spanish bites. With Happy Hours running from 4pm to 8pm on Mondays to Saturdays, and from 4pm till the last person gets turfed out on Sundays, plus live Latin jazz, salsa and samba artist performances held here on weekends, La Bodega Pavilion rumbles with excitement any day of the week.
