Bars in Milan – nightlife in Italy’s fashion capital

Since no one in this city steps into the club before midnight, start your revelry at the bar. In the Isola District, things heat up around 7 PM, Happy Hour in Italy. For a laid back evening enter Blue Note, in Via Borsieri, which hosts world-famous jazz musicians alongside legendary cocktails. You could easily spend all night here, but for a higher BPM, head to Chiringuito San Siro club with a booming hip-hop soundtrack or Alcatraz, for DJs and live music.
The Garibaldi District, known for over-the-top glamour with a wild streak, is where the city’s most famous bars are located. At Corso Como, you’ll find the Loolapaloosa, Pitbull and 10 Corso Como, famed for their raucous atmosphere. As for something more genteel, the ultra-refined Fiat Lounge is nearby.
