1930

Milan is not only a fashion hotspot, it’s been the Italian capital of modernist cocktails for a good 20 years. Although 1930 has all the trappings of a vintage speakeasy — with a secret location, period décor and Jazz Age music — the drinks thought up by Benjamin Cavagna and team have a distinct futurist bent. At 1930, you drink like it’s 2030. Take the Asado, for instance: it’s made with rotovap’d pulled pork spirit, smoked gum syrup, chimichurri crusta and then smoked again with dried meat... Certainly one Gatsby wouldn’t be familiar with. 1930 is also a bar in a constant state of flux. Each semi-yearly menu focuses on a different part of the world. To provide a completely immersive experience, the decoration is changed accordingly. It’s now honouring South America and its verdant environs but there’s no telling what the bar will feel, look or taste like next semester.
