Since moving to the Cleveland Heights and Coventry area, I have been on a mission to discover some local gems. Sure enough, I did. The gem I found was one that practically anyone could afford and tastes delicious.
Bodega Restaurant and Lounge located on Coventry Road is a trendy establishment that serves up handmade cocktails and Moroccan inspired cuisine. What makes this place a gem to me is their awesome Monday night special.
They offer $5.00 Martinis all night long!
This past Monday some friends and I spent the night relaxing in the lounge chairs on their outdoor patio under the stars.
The guys pretended to be James Bond while they drank their Vesper Martinis while us ladies sipped on Cucumber and Bloody Mary ones. Guests of Bodega can also enjoy a hookah if they wish.
(If ya didn’t know… the Vesper Martini was created by the fictional secret agent James Bond in the 1953 novel Casino Royale and later made famous in the film.)
Dry martini. Wait… three measures of Gordon’s; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel.
