First of all, Joaquin Costa Street is famous for its rowdy bars, where the skaters, fashionistas, and young creative professionals who share upper Raval district with immigrants from poorer countries, spend their evenings. Almost at the very end of the street, not far away from the Universitat square, there is a showroom with a small collection of vintage furniture, glassware, lamps and wallpapers, owned by the Catalans Lydia Matos and Oriole Viñas. Previously, there was shoemaker shop there, but in 2010, the shrewdy couple managed to buy the shop out, and now they collect and restore distinctive interior pieces of the bygone eras.
