Last night me and my friend stooped by at this bar,after a long walk through Milan. We were thrilled by the concept...snacks,mini pizzas,olives,pastries stuffed with vegetables and cheese. We took drinks at the bar,and waiter Samuele quickly found us a table outside. We chatted a bit with him,offered us to try great beers and cocktails,and he was really nice to... More

We there for aperitivo with my friends, the food was ok, but the cocktails we have ordered had stinky straws. It is very difficult to enjoy your drink when the straw smells like dirty dishwasher. We asked for new drinks, becasue of that and yes they were served to us, but again with the "stinky" straws. I will not visit... More

Nice in theory, cleanish, dimly lit and table service but horrible staff clearly in the wrong profession- maybe unaware that the point of customer service is to serve the customer. As someone with experience in the hospitality industry it was astonishing to experience how rude these staff were throughout the evening, serving tourists prosecco in wine glasses, denying window seats...

This place is one of the favourite milanese places to get aperitivo and meet people. Its fame started as just in front of posher Radetsky providing fast and nice service literally 10mt from the other location, at half the price or so. It got so popular that they expanded the place from a bar of the size of a shoebox... More

There is a large choice of Gin, but also other cocktails. I would definitely come back again and recommend this place for gin connoisseurs but also... More

We went with some friends and the drinks and food were good, but what really bothered us was the poor service, the girls that were serving us were just rude, they throw es us the things and were not nice at all.. definitely would never go back to this place

Very good drinks, done with passion and a bit of show element as well. Aperativo is abundant and plentiful. As it is a trendy place then in the evenings it draws some original gucci-armani people with fake lives, friendships and relationships. A good place to observe people over a tasty drink.

Located in the center of Milan, in a stilish and trendy local you can enjoy an ample choice of finger food and even greater range of drinks and cocktails. Owners are professional, polite and very fast in service.Absolutely to try!

Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
