All in all, we had a pleasant night out. The bartender was skilled and fast. The music was really good. The only problem was that they asked for 5 euros for keeping a jacket and an umbrella...

Very limited choice of non alcoholic drinks. Staff didn't understand English and apparently only only one choice of beer.

I like to come fridays and saturday nights here, to do the italian aperitivo and dancing. It's in a very strategic position in Milan to go later on somewhere in the city

I work right besides this place and I often have lunch there: I'm 100% sure that Le Banque offers the best lunch solution for tourists since the buffet option it's really convenient: fixed price, good quality and wide options to choose among.

Nice and old fashioned location. We had a business event there and the space was good looking. For bigger events the restrooms are to small. The long lanes happens. At 11:30pm they were out of Caipirinha; A bit strange for that bar.

We visited Le Banque with a group of 19, pre-booked. The food was not great, but decent. The service was okay, though we had to wait pretty long before we got our bottles of wine, and later that night it even took longer to serve us the bottles of liquour. After dinner we went to the dance floor to party... More

This place was very nice and confortable with cool waitresses and good disco music and aperitives but not for dinner. Main different courses with the same taste, service too slow and not cheap at all.

4 mintues walking from Duomo, go to Piazza Cordusio, put you in front of the Credito Italiano (Unicredit) building and take the narrow street on its left side. 50 mt and you are there, the entrance is on the left. Formerly a bank, it is now a self service restaurant where you can find good food at reasonable prices. 13... More

I went here on a clubnight once and I decided that I'll never come back. Firstly I heard the same songs over and over again (commercial music).. as if the dj had a playlist on repeat with 10 songs in it. Secondly the people of the cloakroom actually stole my jacket and that of a friend we put somewhere else... More

Description
If Domenico Dolce and Donatella Versace had a lovechild who grew up to be a leopard-skin-loving interior designer, this is the place they would have dreamed of decorating. Le Banque is an infamous dining-room-come-discoth��que located on the Via Bassano Porrone in Milan, and the Italianate interior is all plush red velvet seating, pink marble staircases, colourful LCD-lit chandeliers, dancing disco balls and vibrant VIP bling. Set in a grand former bank building, this restaurant attracts red-carpet totty, soap stars and feisty fashionistas and the chichi crowd is dressed to impress. The kitchen at Le Banque is renowned for their innovative cuisine, and wine list is eclectic and suitably expensive.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
