DOORSHere is my entry for Norm’s Thursday Doors Challenge. Thanks Norm for hosting this challenge.

This is one of the six doors found in the bar restaurant The Four Cats (cat, Els Quatre Gats) in the street Carrer de Montsió, 3 (Barcelona)

Els Quatre Gats (The Four Cats), often written Els 4 Gats, was a café in Barcelona (Catalonia) which opened on 12 June 1897. It also operated as a hostel, a cabaret, a pub and a restaurant. Active until 1903, Els Quatre Gats became one of the main centers of Modernisme in Barcelona. The artist Ramon Casas i Carbó largely financed this bar on the ground floor of Casa Martí (1896), a building by the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch in Carrer Montsió near the center of Barcelona. Els Quatre Gats was reconstructed in 1978.

Pablo Picasso visited this pub–restaurant often in his early art career.

The 4 Cats

“Four Cats” is a colloquial Catalan expression for “only a few people” and the name of Els Quatre Gats is derived from this saying. The four founders of the café—Pere Romeu, Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas, and Miguel Utrillo—also chose this name as a tribute to Le Chat Noir, “The Black Cat,” a celebrated Parisian café whose creator, Rodolphe Salis, had recently died. They modeled Els Quatre Gats largely after the Parisian café.
