Aperitivo Time!

Raise your glass to design at these chic and classy bars.

Aperitivo Time!

Dry Bar

Some might say a dry bar is about as useful as the proverbial glass hammer, but this particular watering hole doesn’t take its name literally. Quite the opposite, in fact. The name is actually based around the acronym DRY which, for software engineers, stands for Don’t Repeat Yourself. Aimed at reducing any repetition of information, the principle can be quite handy in many other aspects of life too. In the case of the Dry Bar, DRY translates into a minimalist philosophy thats pans the decor and gastronomic offerings alike. Designed by Italian studio Vudafieri Saverino Partners, the interior is predictably pared down, focusing on quality above all. Likewise, the food and drink combo of pizza and cocktails is far from standard, yet it totally makes sense. After all, there’s little better in life than a well-made margarita and a vintage Negroni.

Ceresio 7

Another venue with a misleading name, Ceresio 7 Pools & Restaurant, has only a pair of swimming pools, not seven (the number comes from the street address). Still, two is more than enough to make this place one of a kind. Enjoying views across Milan’s diverse cityscape from a rooftop terrace, the restaurant and bar does poolside dining and cocktails straight off a movie set. Created by design duo Dsquared2, the building’s interior features offbeat artwork, and the kind of midcentury modernist quirks that northern Italians do so well. Food-wise, things are well above standard, with Elio Sironi at the helm.The head chef, who once graced the kitchens of the Bulgari Hotel, marries tradition and experimentation to spectacular effect.
