Jazz Night

After we settled into our apartment and neighbourhood we took a quick siesta.  Then on our first night here we went to a classic Jazz venue - tickets pre-booked from Toronto. 

Inside Barcelona’s 5-star Hotel Casa Fuster is Café Vienés, an elegant café which hosts jazz nights every Thursday, at which some of the best jazz and swing artists perform. Woody Allen filmed and played here. For 65 EU each we had a lovely table close to the stage, cold and hot tapas, glass of champagne each and a bottle of tasty red wine. The interior design is funky and very Barcelona (see pics). 

The star performer was "Professor Cunnigham", an Australian, now resident in New York. He was amazing playing Sax, Flute and Clarinet. He was accompied by a pianist and a Bass player. Two young local clarinet and trombone players were enthusiastic guests. The playlists was classic jazz form the 20's and 30's. It was a fun night and great start to our Barcelona experience.
