Great location, right next to the Duomo. Cocktails are OK; with a good selection of cold cuts and finger food (free!!) to snack on. There's a DJ most nights after 8pm... good vibe! PS - Why does everyone in Milan smoke??

A step away from the Milan cathedral, this establishment offers a very good selection of small bites included in the apero’s price. Not pretentious but up to a decent standard it gathers to a relatively young and pleasant crowd.
