Bodega Taqueria y Tequila, South Florida’s iconic taqueria by day and speakeasy concept by night, is taking its celebrated lively vibe to the Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix. From May 5th to 7th, ticketed guests at the Miami International Autodrome at Hard Rock Stadium (located at 347 Don Shula Drive in Miami Gardens) can head to their choice of on-site Bodega locations, each highlighting different offerings and amenities, as well as individual menus of favorites from the beloved restaurant’s roster of popular dishes. Menu highlights will include Chips and Guacamole; Nachos; and Tacos (Pollo Asado, Short Rib, Carnitas, Cameron Al Coco). By The Fountains area, attendees can expect to hear tunes from Bodega resident DJs while sipping on the Miami Grand Prix’s signature cocktail, the MIA Margarita made with Herradura Ultra. Those watching the fast-paced action from the Hard Rock Beach Club will enjoy offerings from the signature airstream food truck. Guests can choose from the four select tacos and build their own 10 pack to enjoy while watching the concerts in cabanas. Meanwhile, exclusive Paddock Club ticket holders can check out the incredible views from the rooftop viewing deck while enjoying complimentary bites from the brand’s new mini “Chiquita” airstream truck, making its debut at this year’s races.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Miami Grand Prix. We had an incredible response to last year’s build out at the inaugural race. We worked with Hard Rock Stadium and Soxexo Live! to bring the Bodega experience back to different areas of the campus,” said Jared Galbut, CEO and Co-Founder.
For race fans who are not able to make it to the track but want in on a piece of the action, Bodega will feature race-inspired cocktails at their Coconut Grove, South Beach and Fort Lauderdale lounge locations.
