Great venue for watching bands. Small enough to near the stage. Seen some of the best up & coming as well as established bands here.

Bodega is honestly one of my favourite nights in Nottingham, whether it's a gig, a club night or just a drink in their bar. It's got a great atmosphere and a great selection of drinks.

Have had plenty of great nights in this place, the downstairs bar has a very good selection of drinks to try. Pop Confessionals on a Friday night is definitely worth a visit!
