A fantastic bar that serves the coolest drinks in the world! The style is amazing and the staff are uber cool and very friendly. We wanted to try everything on the drinks menu. A must-go for aperitivo 😎

We had two rounds of drinks here. They came with multiple rounds of free antipasto - we had to ask them to stop or we'd spoil our appetite for dinner. We we're sure we were going to get slugged with a service charge but didn't. Such good value when you consider the food you get. Plus the cocktails were delicious... More

After reading the reviews below, my husband and I decided to come here for breakfast as it was so close to where we were staying. The serving staff, while nice, were not great. My husband was told by a member of staff that she would come out to take our order, but it was about ten minutes before we were... More

My boyfriend and I checked out Mag's and loved it. We both had a Spritz and they were great. It had some quirky touches like menus inside vintage books. We liked it so much we came back the next day. If you're expecting amazing service this is not the place to go. We had to ask a few people for... More

If I have to impress some guests from outside Milan I like to bring them here. The place its quite small but the decor inside brings you to Paris during the time of the "Belle Epoque". The bird cage falling down from the roof are beautiful and the cocktails are prepared very well.

Good selection of flavoured drinks, great vintage style, I've just to notice small finger food portions for two people in my opinion.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
