Bodega: Hidden in Plain Sight

Bodega: Hidden in Plain Sight

Given that it's one of the oldest cities in the United States, it's no surprise that Boston is rich in history and culture. And while it's widely known as one of the top destinations for sports fans and history enthusiasts, there's a whole lot more to this thriving city than the Red Sox and the Freedom Trail.

Design lovers flock to the city for its stunning hotels, many of which are housed in historic buildings with flawless decor; tasty restaurants featuring every cuisine imaginable; design-centric shopping destinations; and unforgettable cultural experiences. But with so many options, it can feel tough to figure out precisely where to spend your time. If you want to cut straight to the best of the best, check out a favorite design gem in this unique city.

Bodega is easily overlooked as just another corner convenience store, especially because its front window is lined with old bleach bottles and paper towels. But if you take a second look, you'll realize that all is not as it seems. If you park yourself in front of the fake Snapple vending machine outside, you'll discover that there's a hidden sliding door that reveals an epic sneaker shop with a bright, modern interior. You'll find all kinds of rare gems from the likes of Vault by Vans X Aries and Nike Air Huarache Les, as well as everyday classics. In addition to all of the sneaker choices you could ever want, you'll also discover a variety of high-quality, well-designed streetwear for men and women and a thoughtful selection of art and design books.
