Address: 12 Viale Monte Santo | Telephone: 02 2900 5315 |

BackDoor43
Billing itself as 'the smallest bar in the world', this intriguing venue in the navigli district is more of a drinks cabinet. With three stools for three guests, there's still an enviable list of cocktails, whiskies and more. Phone them to book first.

La Buttiga Beer Room
Set on a street corner in the colourful chinatown area, this hip beer emporium with pavement tables features craft brews from the company's microbrewery in Piacenza, great music and friendly people.

Radetzky Cafe
Named after the Austrian general who put down the Italian uprising of 1848, Radetzky Cafe is an oasis of cool that since the 1980s has loomed large on the Milan nightscape. With its po-mo decor popular among architects and fashionistas, this is the place for an early evening aperitivo. radetzky.it

Address: 105 Corso Garibaldi | Telephone: 02 657 2645 |

Address: 5 Napo Torriani | Telephone: 320 2973647 |

Ginger Cocktail Lab
Bare brickwork gives this Navigli hangout a church crypt feel but the welcome is far from chilly, the cocktails inventive (€9) and the buffet has veggie/vegan options. A retro vibe and period pop music attract creative thirtysomethings.      

Address: 21 Via Ascanio Sforza | Telephone: 335 569 0779 |

UGO Cocktail Bar and Bistrot

Address: 12 Via Corsico | Telephone: 02 3981 1557 |

The Room
An unimaginative name for one of the coolest nightspots in Milan, The Room is an architect designed space that's great for cocktails, brunch or a full blown feast. The burgers and steaks come highly recommended; swift service and classic 1990s music complete the welcoming vibe.

Address: 38 Via Messina | Telephone: 3388098326 |
