Though Bodega may be better known for its Insta-famous neon sign in the back lounge, the tacos here are every bit as good as the suggestive artwork. Before heading back through the not-so-secret outhouse door for tequila shots, fill up on coconut or tequila-marinated shrimp tacos in Bodega’s front section. The Coconut Grove and South Beach locations are also great places to kick back with tacos and watch a game, as they boast copious big screen TVs and plenty of ice cold margaritas.
Though Bodega has now stretched its tacos-and-nightlife empire across the tri-county area, only the South Beach original still has that hidden tequila den feel. Venture through this joint’s bright blue crapper door and you’ll step right into South Florida’s version of Narnia—a swanky, two-story speakeasy lounge decked out with vintage couches, a long wooden bar, mas tequila, and lit wall-messages that are just so... Miami.

Looking for a tequila-crazed dance partner that wants to grab tacos at 4 am? We are, too, and we’re doing it at Bodega. While it’s not much of a secret these days, look for the port-a-potty door inside the late-night counter service taco shop. Once you step through, you’ll find yourself in a sexy lounge where a large Love Me, F*ck Me neon sign sets the tone and live music or DJs take care of the rest. All you’ve got to bring are your moves. With locations all over South Florida, you’ve got plenty of opportunity to find that special taco-loving someone.
