If you’re looking for an institution then Bar Magenta’s ya boy. Set on the corner of a couple of busy streets, come here for a refresh in typical Milanese style. Walls are lined with old Heineken posters, stained glass lampshades dangle from high ceilings and ochre walls are bright yellow for vibrancy’s sake. If you make it over here at lunch or early evening then you’re gonna have to fight for a seat, but what’s lunch without a scrap?
Be inspired by the décor and hit the Heinekens or if you’re feeling a little classier then go for a glass of local prosecco and make sure that you include the aperitivo deal with it. It means you can eat your weight in nibbles and it will only cost you a couple of euros extra.
Best bit? The dude in the corner selling lottery tickets and sweets for the walk home.
