It's located in the Navigli district with dozens of bars. A very cosy place,with nice design and polite stuff. They have an assortment of their own cocktails. All their drinks come with a plate of snacks,which is really really nice) We have chosen this place based on reviews,so I think it lived up to our expectations.

Despite us being able to speak 0 Italian and it being ridiculously busy late on a Friday night, the service we received was impeccable. After trying their delicious offerings of two classics (€9 each)- the negroni and the old fashioned - our waiter discouraged us from repeating the order. Instead he took the time to suggest personal variations tailored to... More

Nestled in the Navigli area this bar was quite a find. With its range of cocktails presented in different funky glassware it stands out from other bars because of the different kinds of concoctions. It's a cozy bar with a lovely Sit out area as well.

We popped into this cafe on a Sunday morning after visiting the flower festival on the canal. The cappuccini and brioche were delicious and the atmosphere was quirky, relaxed, and very enjoyable.

Best cocktails at the Navigli area! Small bar with great decoration and nice service. You can also have apperitivo here. Very nice environment, it's my second time here and I am definitely going again next time in Milan. If you like alternative and unique places, you will love it too!

This little bar is quirky and lot of fun. We only had drinks, but we were provided with a platter of cold cuts and cheese as complimentary food. The wine and cocktails are reasonably priced. What really makes this bar/café stand out is the many quirky fun features and very friendly staff. Recommended for a stop along the canal.

This little cocktail bar in the Navigli neighborhood - which is one of my favorites. The interior of the bar is cozy with lots of eclectic flair. It's nice place to come before or after dinner to enjoy a fancy cocktail or two.

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
