Regarded as Kansas City’s first authentic tapas experience for the past 16 years, La Bodega turns up the heat on Spanish small plates engineered for sharing. Each distinctive location — the boho-influenced Southwest Blvd. room with its hand-painted murals by artist Peregrine Honig and Leawood’s Euro-chic space with one of the best patios around in a vibrant suburban setting — add to La Bodega’s sexy, seductive atmosphere. Spirited cocktails, a lovely house-made sangria, an extensive tapas menu, Paella and Spanish-inspired entrees along with the lunch Menu Del Dia — an innovative daily cuisine tour that showcases the Basque and Catalan culture — might have you dreaming of hopping the next flight to Barcelona. End the day with one of the city’s best happy hours — half-price tapas paired with bar specials and a laid-back attitude. And if you want to experience the traditional dish of Spain stateside, select a glass of wine from the worldly list along with La Bodega’s Paella Valencia studded with chicken, pork, shrimp, mussels and clams or the Paella Abanda, which features shrimp, white fish, scallops, squid, mussels and little neck clams. No passport required for this genuine Spanish gastronomical treat. Lunch is served Monday through Saturday from 11 until 2 and features our unique take on sandwiches, salads, and even pizzas. Our Tapas and Dinner menu is available until 10 Sunday through Wednesday, 11 on Thursday, and 12 midnight on Friday and Saturday. We also feature a savory Brunch on Sundays from 11 until 2. The award winning Happy Hour runs daily from 2 until 6, and then again after 10! We look forward to serving you soon on our newly remodeled deck and patio!
