Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra was a Spanish "explorer" with the distinction of having two last names, or two proper names united by a conjunction. I am not sure if La Bodega, which has a ground floor and an upstairs dining space, is named after him or what bodega translates to in English, and that is cellar.

Earlier this year we learned that the building that houses one of Vancouver's first tapas bars, La Bodega, was sold to a developer who presumably sees a need for more market housing and will be razing the building as soon as the development application is approved.
As for La Bodega, rumour had it that it would be moving to Yaletown, and then a couple months later, someone said Main Street.
Either way, tonight is La Bodega's last night (at 1277 Howe Street) -- after 43 year in business.
Con esta servilleta, agito adiós y buena suerte. Gracias por los muchos buen momento!
