Montserrat Gabaldà: maigot

“I’m Munzia, owner of the original bar ‘Maigot’. We’re located on ‘La Calle Baciata della Gloria’, a long uphill climb that ends up in Parc Güell.

When tourists come out of the subway they usually cry out ‘Oh my God!’ because of the long uphill climb that they see in front of their eyes. This is what gave me the idea to name the bar Maigot, which is the Catalan way of saying ‘Oh my God’.

There used to be an office here. We painted it with a whirlwind of colors, furnished it in Mediterranean style, and added a few paintings and mosaics which reminded us of those in Parc Güell.

We exhibit paintings and clay sculptures because we like to give a particular atmosphere to the bar.

A friend of mine created the chandeliers using negatives of old pictures, bottle caps and vinyl records. They are the bar’s metaphor: the negatives represent the passers-by who tell their respective stories, like the sequences taken from a film; the bottle caps are the spirit of the bar, where bottles are always opened, and the LPs represent the music that a bar never fails to play.

Our customers are our friends!”.
