The riots in 1391

The street named Carrer de Sant Domenec del Call was chosen because on the 5th of August in 1391, the day of the riots, was Sant Domenec religious name’s day. These serious riots marked the disappearance of the Jewish quarter in Barcelona. The social, economical and political situations in Barcelona at the end of the 14th centuries weren’t easy.

Mojitos and G&Ts are prepared with a masterstroke, in addition to an assortment of other usual cocktails. Draft beer is poured with patience and foamy. The best selection of cheeses and meat. Wines by the glass that always come with a small “tapa” on the house.

The uproar against the Jewish community took place in 1391. On that date, the house that stood on this site was owned by Bonjuà Gracià, member of the important Hen family and secretary of the Jewish community (years 1376-77 and 1383). This building was rebuilt in the early 19th century. The house was described at the cadastre of 1716, it consisted of a ground floor and two floors above. Part of the top floor was a porch.

In the narrow street, Sant Domènec del Call, one of the most charming streets of the Gothic Quarter, we find this warm and welcoming place constantly evolving and tastefully decorated by its owners (with artistic background) with antique objects, centenarian candles and soft lights, restored books, paintings, furniture … all in the Alcoba emanates sensitivity and grace, it takes you home.

On the menu, artisan toasts are the star, as well as a variety of meats, cheeses and other small and delicious dishes that fill the air with brightness and perfume.

An unforgettable place with a unique atmosphere, wrapped with the most important: the kindness and friendliness of the staff and their eternal smile, the caress of jazz and blues, the party fell swing, the flamenco art, the flair of boogaloo and the elegance of soul.
