In the city of fashion

If aperitivo is one of Italy’s trademarks for Italians themselves and for tourists, there is one city where the aperitivo is not only a good reason for gathering, eating and drinking but also a real lifestyle: Milan.

In the city where everything relates to style and fashion, aperitivo isn’t an exception for it.

Of course, Giorgio Armani, an extremely talented Italian designer, created his own Emporio Armani Caffè in Piazzetta Croce Rossa, right next to Montenapoleone metro station. It also has a Bamboo Bar in Brera for another type of experience.

Designer bars

Dolce & Gabbana has created, in partnership with Martini, a sublime Bar Martini in Corso Venezia, only a few minutes away from Villa Necchi Campiglio and from Duomo di Milano. The atmosphere is cosy and intimate, offering a total black look and most importantly, it leads to a patio and garden, which is priceless in Milan. Get ready for the most glamourous experience in the city!

More design

For an original and electric aperitivo, there is no better place than Cavalli Club Milano next to Castello Sforzesco. It is exactly the perfect place you want to go, during the summer, after work, for an aperitivo and you get so into the place, that you are staying the whole evening. However, it would be very advised to book in advance your table as some international fabulous artists such as Tinie Tempah, Bob Sinclair or Klingande might play there during the week.

More than high fashion

However, aperitivo is no longer the trademark of only high fashion brands. It is also now valued by other brands such as Fiat, with the Fiat Executive Lounge for example. Just right next to Corso Como and Garibaldi metro station, this place is vibrant and pulsating. The open area is such a pleasure on hot days during the summer that you may want to spend all your evenings there.

Another great aperitivo and named one of the Top 10 Aperitivi in Milan is happening at the hclub>diana. Check out this design place with beautiful outside garden.
