Espectapes 2016

2016 is here! February is back, theatres are back, tapas are back and so is Espectapes 2016. If you enjoy having great food, accompanied by the best live entertainment, you should not miss it! Every Tuesday, from February to April, at 20: 30h you have an appointment at the Library of our restaurant on street Provença 286-288.

The Espectapes 2015 was a success and all we can do at El Principal in Eixample is repeating this experience but with improvements, new covers and new artists that will allow you to enjoy the magical Tuesdays at our restaurant. The idea that emerged from Adrià Ferré and Bernat Cot is the purest representation of animation accompanied by the best food tasting. This year, the show features three new proposals that will take place at the library of our restaurant.

The space devoted to the theatre and to food will be our Library. An exclusive and elegant environment with the ability to take over an event that will have a maximum capacity of 60 people.

The theatre and comedy will be accompanied by three tapas and a drink served to enjoy this unique proposal for just 22 euros. Tickets will be available at Time Out Barcelona. If you came last year, you know that you have to repeat the experience; if this is something new to you, do not miss the opportunity of attending to this innovative alternative to traditional theatre.

Calendar and shows

  • FEBRUARY: Tuesday 2.9 and 16 “TOTHOM HO SAP”
  • MARCH: Tuesday 8, 15, 22 and 29 “CLARA PEYA & FRIENDS
  • APRIL: Tuesday, 5, 12 and 26 “PUNTO DE ROCIO”



February starts with a tribute to the songs of Leonard Cohen that will acquire the strength and the spirit of four friends that share the same taste for poems, text and songs of the artist. It could be defined as a poetic-musical recital that will feature the inclusion of different instruments and voices; like Montse Vellvehí or Ernest Villegas, cello and voice of Marta Marco and guitar and voice by Marc Serra.


March and the first signs of spring will be accompanied by the pianist and composer Clara Peya, that will offer a solo show to all of those that choose to attend. The artist, co-founder of the company “l’Era de les Impuxibles”, will not be alone during the four sessions, with her, different artists will participate, claiming our daily fears and representing, by music, the way to identify them and overcome them securely.


A tribute to Rocio Jurado will take place in April, by the artist Daniel Anglès, responsible of different companies and musical productions as “Les Miserables”, “Bella y la Bestia” and director of the school of singing and acting AULES of Barcelona. The show will feature the adaptation of the best songs from the artist. The guitarist Marc Sambola, along with Anglès, will also delight us with the experiences and musical curiosities of the great Rocio Jurado.
