Hello, everyone! Today I want to suggest you some cool cafes and bars in Milan. I imagined a tourist exploring the city, who needs to have a drink and rest a little bit during my visit in Milano.
So I’m going to list a few ideas that can be helpful throughout your entire day.
Marchesi is a famous bakery born in 1824. The selection of product is amazing and ideal for breakfast. You can find this spot in three points of Milan: Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, via Montenapoleone and via S.Maria alla Porta.
As they suggest on their website, you can enjoy an incredible breakfast even just having the simplest of things: a delicate croissant, an espresso, a creamy cappuccino and an orange juice.
Looking for a special afternoon?
Inside 10corsocomo, a must-see concept store, there are art expositions, a shop, a restaurant and a bar.
Located in a famous area of Milan (near the Gae Aulenti Square and the Porta Garibaldi Station) is ideal for those who are interested in a break while visiting the zone. What’s cool about this place is that you can have a coffee in a tiny garden, and then delight your eyes in the store and in the art gallery. There’s always something special to see.
Now, let’s pretend it’s time to have dinner and you wanna go somewhere special.
In Corso Sempione, there are many cool bars with great buffets where you will find what we call an ‘apericena’ or simply a happy hour.
Bhangrabar is one of my favourite: they offer a huge variety of yummy food and the Indian-inspired location is very particular. You will be satisfied!
Regarding the rest of the night, there are many spots in the city where you can drink something and hang out with your friends.
Navigli is one of the coolest places to do so. Backoor43 is placed there and it’s known as the world tiniest bar. You can only order one of the cocktails listed on the outer wall and then some mysterious barman passes it through a little window. Forget to enter if you didn’t book, you can only order from the street.
Pigato is another Navigli cafe. Its peculiarity is the strange list of drinks: each one as a dedicated page on the hand-drawn menu, where they list the special ingredients. Go there to sip unique drinks in a fashionable place decorated with a retro taste. They also make tasty sandwiches, in case you’re hungry during your night out.
