Somewhere in Milan
Five years ago, Flavio Angiolillo and Marco Russo’s intimate bar MaG, which focused on tailor-made cocktails, became very popular and had unforeseeably evolved into a high-volume bar. Angiolillo and Russo were frustrated they could not deliver the same attention to their customers and decided to open 1930 Cocktail Bar, an homage to their initial habitués, who received coveted membership cards to the new speakeasy. Entering 1930 is like stepping back in time. Vintage furniture, candle-lit rooms and the best music of the Jazz Age. 1930 recreates the original enchantment of MaG, but in a more relaxing and stress-free environment. It prides itself on making great classics but also evocative signature drinks. Led by bar manager Benjamin Cavagna, its drinks menu is inspired by the various parts of the world which have defined modern mixology. 1930 changes continent every six months, with the theme in Autumn 2019 being Asia including music, decor and drinks inspired by the Orient.
