VillaRosa: the dancefloor upstairs
Barcelona’s Chinatown is a historical landmark for flamenco cabaret and 3, Carrer del Arc del Teatre housed the oldest tablao in the history of flamenco in Barcelona: Villa Rosa. Villa Rosa was the successor of a modest and rather gloomy tavern, frequented by gipsy customers, known as Cal Macià. It soon managed to attract a large and growing clientele, including representatives of the bourgeoisie and wealthy families, mixing with tourists and other strangers passing through the city.
We wanted to keep the name VillaRosa to commemorate its history, and that is what the top floor of Moog is called. If you go upstairs, you will find a smaller dance floor with a DJ who will play a selection of pop, electropop and rock tunes from the seventies, eighties and nineties – dancefloor tunes that will get you up on your feet.
The regular resident DJs you will meet most often are Dj Purpur and Monraker, who have been part of the club’s history almost since it opened.
This small club within a club offers an escape, with different rhythms, acting as a counterpoint to the rhythmic impedance produced by the artists downstairs.
At VillaRosa, fans have two areas, with different ambiances to enjoy 365 nights of the year.
