This is the inside of a Cork institution, Cork’s Bodega Bar on Corn Market Street. The Bodega is a superbly appointed bar, with good food, a fantastic, multi-cultural atmosphere, and it is incredibly child-friendly.
I’m sitting here in the bar, in shock, as the staff have just informed me that the bar (and the associated Savoy Centre) have been sold, all the staff given notice that they will be made redundant effective on Friday week (9th?) and the bar is to be closed.
Seemingly the new owners don’t intend to re-open the Bodega as a bar but no-one knows what their plans are yet.
I’m very disappointed as the Bodega is one of my favourite bars and is a great place to being the kids for lunch on a Saturday.
