Bodega Cantina Leicester


This year we are celebrating our 10th year in business by opening our 10th venue in the Midlands! A third Bodega Cantina is due to open in July this year.

Proud to be still independent, we are very excited about spreading our Bodega wings to Leicester which is a city on the up and has great vibe.



Located in St Martin’s Square, the venue will feature the same authentic, fresh, easy going South American food in fun and quirky surroundings than the sister venues in Birmingham and Worcester.

Peruvian and Ecuadorian inspired main dish classics to favourites such as burritos, nachos and tacos will be on the menu.

Matt Scriven, Bitters’n Twisted founder and director commented on the launch of the venue: “We’re excited about launching our new venue in Leicester! Bodega has been such a hit with our customers since we opened our first site in Birmingham five years ago, followed by Worcester in 293cca2_744f04ae11524297be3331e1938764f8014.”

The venue’s interior will focus on iconic and quirky South American imagery including sugar skulls, Mexica, wrestlers and of course football to create a playfull, informal and individual environment.

“People come to us because they don’t want the uniformity and charmless atmosphere of a chain. They want something different, authentic and niche where they can step into the vibrancy, colour and carnival atmosphere associated with South America. We are proud to have created a group of venues that are fuelling the spirit of quality independents in the Midlands.” added Matt.
