Those looking for a drinks menu as colorful as a Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress, should head to Dry. We love the French 75 and the Hanky Panky and the crispy flatbreads are a lifesaver when you’re already half way through your second.
Mandarin Oriental Bar
Milan has a loyal following when it comes to posh accommodation but just as new seasons welcome new designers, there’s another player in the luxury hotel game. We love the new Mandarin Oriental not just for the sleek design but for the bar, set to become the new late-night hotspot in town. Delicious cocktails and bouncing DJ sets—all enjoyed in the lush garden—will make you feel miles outside of the city.
Nurse an evening Aperol Spritz at Bulloni. This aperitivo spot is so real-deal Milanese that they close at 9pm– in other words, it’s for aperitivo and basta! We’re talking classic chips and olives here– not the dinner spread of new school bars. But they’ve been stirring the best spritzes in town since 1933, with an original Futurist mosaic behind the bar and a huge selection of Italian wines.
