If you're tired of going for a drink in a normal bar, this is the place for you. The restaurant has walls hung with objects from all over the world, and the extensive cocktail menu has a lot of international options. There are all the usual drinks, but also experimental things - in capsules, in syringes, cocktails with liquid nitrogen, etc. It's tiny, so it's better to get there early or book in advance, but if you have to wait, it's worth it. The prices range from the normal 8/9 € a drink .. up to 2500 € ... (No joke). Ah it is one of the 50 best bars in the world .. I think I've said it all.
How often do you find yourself wandering around a city, and stumble into a bit of trouble when it comes to time to fill your belly? Often we want to avoid the typical tourist fare and the even more typical bills! Well, if you're in Milan, I recommend this simple, Chinese-run bar, where you can have a simple sandwich and you won't panic when the bill arrives. It's simple but clean, and the staff are friendly. Not bad for a meal on the fly, stomach-filling if not of the highest quality.
My friends in Milan recommended that I visit this brewery, which has been producing craft beer since 1996. I'm glad that I followed their advice! 200 metres from the subway station, this restaurant entertains guests from the moment you arrive, when you choose between the 18 varieties of beer on offer. I was delighted with the Ligera, a top-fermented beer with a slightly bitter orange aftertaste.
I also took the opportunity to dine. The large dinner menu is mostly based on meat. I choose the beef with artichokes and mash. Other options: sausages, provolone, diced coppa, pork shank, etc. I must say that unfortunately the food wasn't up to much, but the staff were so friendly that I could happily overlook it. They've recently opened another location in the same area, at 60 Via Golgi. I recommend it, but be careful: it's tiny! Book in advance or go elsewhere if you want dinner.
If after a stroll through the city you fancy a good drink, one of the best places to enjoy it is in Piazza Castello, just before the start of the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. In the square, just behind the statue of the king, is a cafe with outdoor seating and a spacious, elegant interior room. They serve great drinks, accompanied by a rich buffet at good prices. A perfect way to end a day of sightseeing.
A little bar where you can eat well and cheaply. The Bolero is located near the Piazza Comune, in Solferino Street. The atmosphere is nice and quiet, and the interior rooms are pleasantly decorated with wooden tables and shelves on the walls, where interesting bottles are displayed. During the summer, you can sit outside on the tables overlooking the quiet side street. The menu is filling, and delicious - try the "chicce della nonna" with gorgonzola and walnuts! The desserts are also excellent. Highly recommended, especially for a quick lunch.
