Mr Smith’s moustache

This impressive moustache belongs to Mr Smith. Or rather, to El Bigote del Sr Smith, a multi-use space which opened not long ago on Carrer Joaquin Costa 38.

Joaquin Costa 38

El Bigote del Sr Smith is a gallery, workshop, shop and (once the license gets approved) a place to take a break from busy life.

Work shops announced

Fun and cool workshops are on offer regularly. Examples: skate board customisation, introductory course to DJing or Amigurumi or one where you can learn how to jazz up your plain crockery (or vintage porcelain) with decals.

Current exhibit

Just around the proverbial corner from the Macba, El Bigote del Sr Smith is a great venue for a gallery, and periodically exhibits of young artists are hosted in this simple, bright space.

Shop through here…

While the gallery takes up the front of the space, the shop takes up the middle part of El Bigote del Sr Smith. And above this, anyone who needs a (temporary) office space or just a desk, can rent it here.

Sophie Aguilera’s plates and cups

The shops stocks well made items, such as Sophie Aguilera‘s crockery pieces which received the decal treatment, as well as other ceramics, and also jewellery, clothing, a very lovely range of pretty paperware, and more…

It’s a leggy affair

Suggestive screen

Behind the lovely bamboo screen, lie the currently out of bounds bar and patio, which, once the license is approved will serve as a gathering space to have a drink (or two) and meet with hip young things from around town.

More lovely stuff…

This coming Saturday, El Bigote del Sr Smith will host its 2nd artistic market, in which more arts and crafts will be made known and available for purchase to the public. If you’re in the area, make sure to check it out. Who knows? We may run into each other there!
