2015 in review

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 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.

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!!!

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!
