Giacomo "Jaime" Aragall - patron of our Café Bar
The family owners have revered the world-famous tenor Giacomo "Jaime" Aragall from Barcelona for years, so they chose him to be the namesake for the hotel bar. This exceptional artist is checkin in at the HOTEL AM STEPHANSPLATZ regularly, and always visits the CAFÈ BAR ARAGALL which bears his name. Giacomo "Jaime" Aragall was deeply touched by the fact that the feel-good bar was named for him, and that his portrait occupies such a prominent place here.
The Catalan tenor, a singer of the Vienna State Opera, is unforgettable to opera lovers. With his famous roles – including the lyrical Rodolfo in "La Bohème," the passionate Cavaradossi in "Tosca" or Pinkerton in "Madame Butterfly" – he has written music history. Today, Aragall mainly dedicates himself to promoting the next generation of singers, and gives master classes around the world.
