OUR STORY

Owners Larry and Emily Foppe love international travel, great food and wine. The inspiration for Bodega 13 began in Carefree when they remodeled a small wine bar and introduced a restaurant with an international twist. Believing people were tired of all the same “bar food”, they created a protein-based international menu with no fried foods.  To keep their daughters happy, they added several options for Vegan, Vegetarian, and gluten free diets.

They wanted the bar area to be welcoming with a unique “fire table” extension.  Add a selection of great bourbons, tequilas and single malt scotches and you have one of the best bars for Happy Hour in Scottsdale,  They also added their favorite specialty cocktails from all over the world and a wine list with both Old and New World wines of distinction.

In November 2016, Bodega outgrow its Carefree location and moved to Scottsdale. The goal was to provide a dining location where area neighborhoods, families and friends could gather to celebrate friendship, birthdays, anniversaries – or for no reason other than to celebrate unique food and ambiance!

In the summer of 2018, Bodega began “live Music” dinner concerts one night a week.  The concerts were a hit and sold out quickly.  This was a clear sign that North Scottsdale lacks entertainment for it’s local residents and tourists.  Therefore, Bodega 13 expanded it’s concert schedule and is now transforming into North Scottsdale’s only Live Music Dinner Club featuring award winning food and world class entertainers.

The Foppes were married in May 2016. Larry is a serial entrepreneur and Emily is an author. Although they enjoy traveling the world and sharing their passion for food and wine through Bodega 13, their greatest passion is ministry with ” Samaritans in Action: in La Montagne, Haiti.  If you want to know more – Just ask!
