El Lugar Bodega Bar
Nina Maldonado wanted to bring her favorite Mexican groceries to Capital Hill so El Lugar Bodega Bar was created in 2022. El Lugar Bodega Bar is a one-stop shop for your favorite Mexican drinks like Horchata or Mexican hot chocolate. Want something with a little more kick? Grab one of their various margaritas or a mezcal hot toddy. They also serve small plates ranging from esquites to tamales and in true bodega style you can pick up everything from pinatas to paletas!
Tip: Come by Saturday and Sunday and order their pan dulce. Thank us later.
Be sure to check out the family’s other restaurant Fogón Cocina Mexicana, too!
