Thank you very much to all who came to our 2nd anniversary party, which was a total success, BBQ and tapas, and live music with Cuban band Kandela Mi Son, and all of you dancing and having a great time, that makes us happy!
We are looking forward to a 3rd year of lovely people, great coffee, breakfast and good times at Cafe Barcelona in Streatham. We are working in some new brunch options, specially with poached eggs, and of course more live music evenings with flamenco, fado, and other fantastic genres from around the world.
I leave you with some pictures of the evening courtesy of Olesya Njemnobi.
We are very happy to announce that Cafe Barcelona received the Award of Best Business of the year 2016 in Streatham, selected by a panel of independent judges, in a sold out ceremony celebrated at the Hideaway Jazz Club.
The Awards, with hundreds of entries from all kind of business in Streatham, is a recognition to the hard work we have put in the last 2 years into creating a unique place in Streatham High Road, an area that is rapidly changing and developing with more young professional people moving to the area.
We want to share this with all our customers who support us every day, and also with all the businesses in Streatham who also deserve the award as much as us, who fight every day to improve their businesses and the area of Streatham. By helping an independent business, you improve the backbone of the local economy, and nurture our thriving and healthy community, where everyone benefits.
From our hearts, THANK YOU.
The Cafe Barcelona team
PS: Photos of the night coming soon
The live music returns to Cafe Barcelona with 2 great evenings:
Last year we learnt a lot of things. We met new people, we had lovely music nights and celebrated our 1st anniversary and our 1st World Music festival to great success.
This year we start with new bread in our toasties and breakfast – a lovely fire oven sourdough that will make your visit even tastier. We are looking forward to a new year full of challenges and good times, we hope to see you soon!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Please note that we will be CLOSED from the 24th December to the 6th January inclusive.
We wish you a peaceful Christmas and a great 2016 full of challenges and achievements.

MOSCOW DRUG CLUB – 4/12/15
A curious musical place where certain elements of 1930’s Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, New Orleans Funeral Parade & Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few to drink and then stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some eastern European cobbled street on a mission to find the bar where Django Reinhardt & Tom Waits are having an after hours jam with the local Tziganes. You are cordially invited to share a wry smile with us as you enter the darkly comic world of Moscow Drug Club…..this way please & mind the stairs!!!
By popular demand, we are now open on Mondays, so you can enjoy the great atmosphere and relax in our beautiful Cafe.

Enjoy the atmosphere and comfort of Cafe Barcelona in the evening, just for you and your friends. We can cater for up to 40 people, we are family friendly, and we have alcohol license.
For example for a set menu of £12 per person you will get a selection of nibbles and tapas to share:
A big healthy salad
Bread & olives
Cod fishcakes or “jamon” croquettes
Charcuterie and cheese board
Chorizo al vino
and Churros con chocolate for dessert
(or our famous Custard tarts baked for the occasion for an extra £1.5 per unit!)
You just need to cover a minimum expense of £300 between food and drinks, and that’s it!*
Justin Case decides to book Cafe Barcelona for a Saturday evening between 7-11pm.
He invites about 25 friends and family members to celebrate his wife’s 50th birthday, and would like to have an informal gathering, opening a bar tap of £xxx so the guests can enjoy some cocktails, and a selection of wines and soft drinks for grown ups and kids.
He also comments about his wife’s favourite music so Cafe Barcelona can play it during the evening… or he can book a live band to play during the party!
So if you have an event coming up, forget the cooking and the tidying up, just enjoy with your guests!
