    In the 20’s and 30’s, Prohibition came into effect in the USA, and  many speak-easies emerged: clandestine meeting places, with betting and wild dancing …

    Tell your most trusted friends:  On Saturday 16th we will be travelling back in time to 1930, when Fabra i Coats was just 20 years old.

    Within the premises of the venue, time will go back and you’ll find yourself in a clandestine club of almost 1000m2, perfectly conditioned so you can dance like the world is coming to an end.

    We’ve been told that for this special occasion, Myriam Swanson and Pol Prats have assembled a fantastic band to take you back in time to the essence of the roaring twenties.

    Clandestine competitions, dessert battles, Cabaret …
