Bodega Dali is a piece of Spain in Schwabing. Located in a cellar vault it contains some big and small rooms and corners, and a bar. Upon entering, a self-portrait of the eponymous artist greets you from the wall, and you’ll find more of his work around the place. Its cut makes the tapas and wine bar perfect for all kinds of occasions: In the big rooms with a group of friends, a romantic evening in the privacy of the candlelit corners or even by yourself without the weirdness of being in the middle of a crowded restaurant. If you do meet others there, do so outside. More than once I’ve overheard people exclaiming “there you are – I’ve been waiting at another table for half an hour” (feel free to use this as an excuse when you actually do run late.)
You can order Spanish beer, but since it’s a Bodega you should go for their great selection of mostly Spanish wines. They have around 10 open wines and numerous bottles to choose from. Of course Bodega Dali also offers housemade sangria. The schnapps and coffee (from local roastery Dinzler) are also worth checking out.
Their menu varies weekly with classics like tortilla, Manchego or patatas bravas con rojo. As a dessert I recommend Tarta de Santiago (almond cake served with sweet wine). Paella is available if you preorder it.
The friendly and partly Spanish personnel add to the nice atmosphere. And when the weather is Spanish you can sit outside.
