I’ve been in July for a graduated celebration! It was such a big experience talking about quality, service and hospitality! Please don’t forget to try “Negroni Rilassato”. Simply amazing!

I discovered this amazing hidden speakeasy during design week. It’s not simple to find it because of the work in progress on the street but it’s located in the heart of Milan. I’ve been impressed of the location researched vintage design, with many unique pieces......so if you are looking for something out of the standard commercial bar this is the place for you! A true emotion! Staff has been so kind and available to realize our requests, making us delicious cocktails. They propose a big choice of gin and they can suggest you the best combination accordingly with the client’s taste! Don’t miss it!!!More

Came here with my boyfriend and then with a friend. Ordered a couple of cocktails, spent the right amount for a quality cocktail. Atmosphere is very chill and nice, staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend. I love to drink nice cocktails and I like...to find places that meet my standards, and this is one.More

It was late at night and the only place open was this weird old stairway to nowhere. Once down the stairs the room opens up to this amazing little bar. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Drinks where crafted nicely. Would recommend.

The cocktails here are so good! Loads of choice and very reasonable price for the quality. Nice decor, really friendly table service including some free nibbles!

Fantastic place if you are looking for great cocktails at an affordable price. 7-9 euros for a well done cocktail in Milan is a steal. Your first order comes with a complimentary bowl of marshmallows. Whilst this is a nice gesture I feel sweets don't...really mix well with drinks and some crisps would have been ideal. The bartenders were super friendly, gave recommendations and were very attentive. When we were asking if they sold cigarettes they offered one of their own for free! We went on a Tuesday night so it was unfortunately very empty. Though I'm sure this place is buzzing on the weekend, it's one of the few bars we saw in Milan that had ample seating and large tables. I can personally recommend "From Paris with Love", a nice and sweet cocktail to get your night started.More

We got there early and the place was empty, but we took the last table available (people in fact started to arrive at around 8 and every single table was booked). We had a Venetian spritz and they brought us a big plate of different...kinds of ham (mortadella, crudo, cotto, turkey, salame), plus some other typical aperitivo stuff. I was supposed to go out for dinner but I was already full when we left the place! The room is downstairs, the atmosphere is British-like, lovely and sophisticated. I recommend!More

The place is very nice and well furnished, large, with tables and chairs sufficient so that everyone can accommodate. The cocktails are very special and the food excellent. The staff is very kind and attentive to the needs of all. The evening was very pleasant...with nice music. We will return soon to "Wave Cocktail Bar".More

We went to the wave cocktail bar for an happy hour/birthday. The place is awesome, the music is relaxing and not too loud. All the staff was very nice and attentive to all our request. The food is generous and very good, and at last...but not less important is served at your table. We spent a beautiful evening and we are going to visit the wave cocktail bar again soon.More
