The perfect place for a cappucino or 4. To have a smoke, to cry, to laugh, to read, to cocktail and listen to a LOT of Queen.

Drinks are perfect here. I think that an important slice of life of the Milanese mixology passes here. Just a problem. It is better to serve nothing than the really poor dish you bring to every table. One point less for this reason. Anyway recommended...More

We agree with most reviews in that this little venue would be most popular in the evenings with a young lively crowd. That said, we 'oldies' enjoyed an excellent cappuccino and a friendly vibe as a respite from our wandering around the highlights of Milan.

I reckon most people will come here for the bar at night. I came for the breakfast in the morning. It was quiet but I got to try a legit Italian breakfast and was quite surprised. I liked my cold tea drink, biscuit, and doughnut....More

If you are lucky to get a table or a small space at the bar, please do visit MAG. They have a cool menu presented where each drink is communicated as a story or a mith. You can directly feel the type of each cocktail...More

We visited Mag's last Friday evening. The place has a cool, relaxed vibe and great, well-mixed cocktails. You may wish to arrive early, as it is very popular (and crowded, for obvious reasons), but the manager kept an eye out for an open table for...More

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
