Barcelona is an amazing city with something special for everyone. By exploring the main and obvious tourist attractions, you can get creative and find something more personalized to your own needs. For jazz lovers, there are several venues in Barcelona where one can spend an evening with a glass of wine while listening to live music.
With a huge number of bars and restaurants with live music, Barcelona invites its visitors to search for places with a special history, which can be found there for all tastes. And one of the most striking establishments is Casa Fuster, a landmark building for the city, along with the famous Casa Mila or Casa Batllo. Designed by the famous architect of the early 20th century (Lluís Domènech i Montaner), this building is the result of the ideas of the Modernist movement (art nouveau in Catalonia, most vividly represented by the creations of Antonio Gaudí).
A convenient location at the beginning of the Passage de Gracia, luxurious architectural solutions in the form of white marble, stone columns and patterned windows, as well as the presence of a wonderful restaurant and bar, made Casa Fuster unrivaled in terms of atmospheric pastime. The tradition of holding jazz evenings in a local bar has been around for many years, and it has miraculously survived even in times of quarantines and restrictions.
Every Thursday, in a luxurious foyer under a gilded ceiling and among marble columns, an evening of live jazz takes place – an invited group performs with a classical repertoire, while guests enjoy a gastronomic menu. By the way, the famous jazz connoisseur Woody Allen filmed one of the scenes of “Vicky Christina Barcelona” in the lobby of Casa Fuster.
I must say that the audience for these evenings is going to be refined – mainly the local Catalan “intelligentsia”, people of creative professions and just connoisseurs of jazz. The tables are quite close, which makes it possible to get acquainted with like-minded people, or, conversely, spend the evening with respect for one’s own privacy.
Well, in principle, in Barcelona there are many institutions with live music. For example, similar jazz evenings were previously held in the lobby of the Hotel Mandarin Oriental in the Passage de Gracia every Wednesday.
