Camparino in Galleria

With over a century of storied history since its opening in central Milan in 1915, this is a real experience for fans of the Italian aperitif tradition and the uninitiated alike. Newly renovated, the two-level venue boasts a terrace with the best view in Milan, looking out on to the square that houses the stunning Duomo cathedral. It’s no secret that Italians love an aperitivo and the terrace is a great spot to settle in the early afternoon with a fluffy orange juice Garibaldi inspired by Dante in New York, or people-watch in the evening with a Negroni in hand. Top-notch hospitality features throughout the venue, with the downstairs Bar di Passo evoking old-school charm through a beautiful wooden bar, chandeliers and a back bar decked out in bottles. Upstairs, the Sala Spiritello is a modern space, more suited to tucking into some of the well-executed food and cocktail pairings.
