Have you ever woken up with a bold idea in your mind which you haven’t had the guts to put into practice? Try materializing it, and if you can do that while you’re having breakfast, all the better. If you are in the mood to try or to simply see others fulfill their designs, come to Bailén St, you will find FabCafe within Makers of Barcelona (MOB) coworking space.
