The Velvet Room

Tucked away in an alleyway, Velvet Room was born out of a nostalgia for the 1940s-1950s. It is a sophisticated Jazz & Piano Champagne bar, where you immediately feel welcome and at home. The friendly staff are always ready to serve you a chilled glass of Champagne/Cava/Wine and a selection of other beverages. Add that to the  cozy ambience of fine Jazz tunes, broadway hits  and the gentle sound of the piano, you find yourself immersed and mesmerised  in a room filled with love and abundance. The venue is also available for hire to host events. We look forward to pampering you!

Who is Yodé?

Yodé Olubajo, the owner and creative force behind the Velvet room, is a flamboyant personality, who enjoys nothing more than bringing joy and a smile to the faces of the people he encounters. He is legendary for his many worldwide themed parties over the years.

Born in London, he was raised in Lagos. Then, he returned to the UK to complete his education. He has since lived in Venice and currently lives in Barcelona. He speaks English, Yoruba, Italian and Spanish. Yodé’s passion for creating the Velvet Room stems from the wonderful memories he had frequenting a piano bar in Mykonos. He often took to the stage impromptu and entertained the guests.

Whilst living in Venice, for several years, he organised a hugely popular, yearly boat party, where he performed cabaret to the rapture of the international crowd, many of whom, were regular attendees.

He has extensive experience in the delivery of unrivalled customer service, having spent almost 28 years in the airline Industry, working for one of the best known brands as a Cabin Service Director.

However, as much as he thoroughly enjoyed travelling the world and meeting people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, his ultimate dream was to bring together his vast knowledge and experience, and create something original here in the city of Barcelona.
