5 things to do in Milan this weekend From December 9th to 11th

Winter has arrived in Milan, with its rains and temperatures courting zero degrees Celsius. December being the beginning of winter hibernation for the city's viveurs, who are waiting for March to prudently resume life outdoors, it might seem that things to do in Milan have diminished-but that is not the case. So equip yourself with scarves and sweaters (preferably pure wool) and your most padded and heavy jackets to discover all that the city's streets have to offer and, most importantly, not languish at home a victim of Netflix.

So here are the 5 things to do in Milan this weekend.

To Eat – Misoya Milano

Cold = Ramen. The equation is very simple. After autumn pushed us towards traditional Milanese cuisine, made of fried food, meats cooked with butter and wine, risottos and ossobuchi, the frost of these days imposes something more radical. Specifically, this little restaurant in the Moscova area specializes in miso ramen and is without a doubt one of the best addresses in town for all lovers of noodles and spicy broth.

Via Solferino, 41


From the kiosk created in collaboration with Le Grand Jeu (the most famous urban bookstore in Paris), to basketball and skate tournaments, through a large number of talks with European guests, the edition of the main Italian festival of the sneaker world is more loaded than ever. This year, by the way, there is a high number of very interesting workshops (which you need to sign up for beforehand, so watch out) that will include customizing miniature Nike Dunk Low together with Foot Locker and Ale Custom, creating custom phone-cases with Cloud Shop and apparel upcycling together with Farah. Foot Locker will also be exploring the metaverse and augmented reality via the Oculus and will be able to assist in the development of 3D printed models.

Via Tortona, 27

To Discover – Da Opera @ Navigli

From the Milan agency of the same name dedicated to digital art comes this independent gallery devoted to sculpture and painting. On the occasion of the opening, the gallery's spaces coincide with those of the agency itself-intending to represent the idea of rapprochement between artist and collector and the democratization of art that lie at the heart of the project from the beginning. An opening that inaugurates the presence of a new space for the city's art communities.

To Shop – Shop the Story

Archival fashion in Milan. That's it, that's the story. Devoted mainly to womanswear, this vintage gem is of relatively recent opening in the city, located in the Carrobbio area, not far from the little district of elevated secondhand that is Via Mora. From Ghesquière's collections for Balenciaga to Yohji Yamamoto's pieces from the 1990s, via Junya Watanabe and Martin Margiela, the selection found in this store is on point. According to some legends, even Lotta Volkova would come here to shop when she passes through Milan-surely the selection is up to par.

Via Cesare Correnti, 11

To Club – Buio @ Gate

The idea is simple: a lights-out party. What happens in the dark remains in the dark, but the music selection communicated by the club sounds immaculate and in our opinion there is a lot of fun to be had as long as you don't spill your drink on some poor unfortunate. You can buy your tickets here. If you can't make it to today's dark party, the club has events planned throughout the weekend.
