It was well over a century ago that Stanley gave the famous greeting: “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?” Outside Tanzania, likely very few would understand the significance of this encounter.
on the 6th floor of a new glass building with a lift/elevator
the address is C/ Urgell with C/ Sepúlveda, in the modern Eixample left, next to Sant Antoni market
reinforced entrance door & video intercom system, double door in the access to the building
inside the building there is a big atrium with a glass ceiling, crossed by suspended bridges leading to your door. Groups of bamboo trees and whitee stones, are bathed by natural light cascades, creating a fresh, shining atmosphere.
glass, steel, stone and wood are the materials used for the building
Stanley relates what happened next: “The expedition at last comes to a halt... There is a group of the most respectable Arabs; and as I come nearer, I see the white face of an old man among them... We raise our hats, and I say, ‘Dr. Livingstone, I presume?’ and he says, ‘Yes.’”
Located in the Eixample left district of Barcelona, next to the Sant Antoni marketplace -designed by Antoni Rovira i Trias and built between 1872 and 1882- which is one of the oldest and most popular in the city, especially with the secondhand book stalls that surround the building on Sunday mornings. It is bordered by the avenues of Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Ronda de Sant Antoni and Avinguda del Paral.lel. The streets of Sant Antoni follow the grid pattern prevalent in all of Eixample, except for a central thoroughfare, the Avinguda de Mistral, built on the site of an important medieval road which lead out of Barcelona. Another well-known landmark of Sant Antoni is the bar called Els Tres Tombs, right next to the market.
Just a few meters away is Parlament sreet, the new happening cluster, a boiling pot where the utmost interesting things are arising.
It all started with the Federal Café, which opened at the end of 2010 and reached almost legendary status, as among the most brilliant entrepreneurs in town. In their case, they spotted a gap for breakfast and brunch in Barcelona, and these days securing a seat either in the café or on the roof terrace on a Saturday or Sunday is nigh-on impossible.
