5 things to do in Milan this weekend From 21 to 23 January

For some years now, fashion weeks in Milan have not been the same anymore: the most awaited moment in the capital of Italian fashion, between cancellations and false starts, no longer offers the emotions of the past. The times when the most anticipated event of the season conjured up cool parties and runaways seem long gone, but, while we wait for the pandemic to slow down again and the old times to return, let's take advantage of it to enjoy Milan as it is.

To Eat - The Little Bistrot

The absolute protagonist of the Bistrot in Via Paganini is the design that combines antique details and ultramodern elements in a sort of eclectic art gallery (which in fact also hosts exhibitions). In the small bistro with vintage furnishings it is possible to relax from breakfast to dinner while enjoying a selected menu. This, small only in size, reserves multiple and unexpected surprising spaces: everything inside the restaurant is a careful research not only in aesthetics but also and above all in quality.

Through a unique style capable of capturing the immediacy and truthfulness of the "decisive moment", photographs that have become a symbol of an era.

An enchanted oasis in the Navigli area, housed in a former 16th century monastery, houses an extraordinary concept store that brings together a gallery-studio, the Sixième bistro and the Irene green design boutique.

To drink - The Spirit

The boom in mixology is now an established reality in Milan, and, given the new restrictions for Milanese clubbing, finding a place where "drinking well" seems to be the best solution to save the evening.

The Spirit combines a large counter, soft lighting, classy drinks with refined ingredients, old recipes, new productions and creative combinations.
