In Noumea, the Bodega del Mar is an internationally known classy tapas bar floating on the lagoon at Anse Vata. With its superb location (near to all of the best hotels like Le Meridien, Ramada Plaza, and the Nouvata Parc and La Promenade), relaxed atmosphere and great music, this is one of Noumea’s top Happy Hour and late night spots.
The bar opens every evening at 5 and it’s the perfect place to wind down after the day, whether working or touring. Sip a soothing drink (the house specialty rum drink or local brew) and savour the magic glow of the setting sun over Anse Vata Bay.
There are live gigs and DJ sessions featuring bands representing every possible music genre, plus some of the hottest deejays around.
According to a frequent visitor, “La Bodega del Mar is a trendy bar on the jetty at Anse Vata with live music, local brews and eye candy. A Rainbow Flag proudly hangs in the kitchen!”
