Casa Fuster, a building designed by the modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, was built between 1908 and 1911. For many years it was a residential building and there lived, in addition to the owners, the Espriu brothers. From 1922, the Viennese-style cafe installed in its ground floor became a meeting place for artists and members of the high society of the time. And the cafe and the whole building, with its gatherings included, was about to disappear. Thanks to popular opposition, the electricity company that bought it yielded in its claims to tear it down and simply reformed it. Goodness. Then, the next transformation came. From offices to hotel, and with it came the revival of the Viennese café, where on Thursdays you can enjoy these Jam Sessions, with performances by outstanding classic jazz bands. Great artists such as the Yoshida Brothers, Eddy Davis, Conal Fowkes, Doc Scalon Trio, the New Orleans Rag Trio, the Barcelona Swing Serenaders and Woody Allen and his clarinet have performed on the stage of the Casa Fuster Viennese café.
