For 128 years the Commercial Café was one of the key stages in the cultural and social life of Madrid, so its sudden closure provoked reactions that led to its reopening in March 2017, an anniversary that celebrates its cultural vocation.
From April 18 to 25, this emblematic space, whose cuisine is now handled by Pepe Roch, has been organized from a wine tasting to a literature workshop, among other activities, because since its reopening it maintains its role as “coffee as a driver” of the arts “, with literary presentations and weekly concerts, have informed their owners today in a note.
The program opens on March 18 with a wine tasting, will continue a day later with Sethler’s concert followed by a cocktail workshop by his bartender, Byron Vinueza, and a table on literature moderated by the writer Adriana Davidova (“Making love to an angel”) with the performance of guitarist Daniel Rabal Davidov and poetic readings by Zhivka Baltadzhieva in the following days.
On April 24, the Commercial Café will host a tasting of beers, on the 25th gastronomy will be the protagonist with a tasting of traditional dishes from the bar menu in which wine and vermouth run by the restaurants, after which it will be held an anniversary party.
Given that the “post-its” had a fundamental role after its closure, since the people of Madrid used them to write their support messages to cover the windows with them, they will be distributed among the clientele so that they can write again.
