4 CAVA BODEGA, GAL­WAY

Irish Independent - Weekend Magazine - - WEEKEND MAGAZINE COMPETITION -

This tapas restau­rant draws a ma­jor crowd of lo­cals and tourists alike, and while the food speaks for it­self, the warm buzzy at­mos­phere takes your ex­pe­ri­ence up a notch. It’s eclec­tic and a lit­tle bit hig­gledy-pig­gledy. Every­thing here has a preloved look to it and while they’ve kept their fur­ni­ture sim­ple, choos­ing old-style school chairs, they’ve off­set this min­i­mal­ism with vi­brant walls. You might never have thought that three strong colours — or­ange and blue and yel­low — would work so well to­gether. Cava Bodega proves they can. Re­sist the urge to match every­thing to per­fec­tion. This Gal­way gem also makes use of big, colour­ful cush­ions to soften the wood. What’s more, the can­dle-in-a-wine-bot­tle cen­tre­piece will never go out of style.
