OTE's recommendations for day 1

September 9, 2012

We recommend bars and restaurants to visit in Milan...

Best of the bars

Blue Note MilanoThe Blue Note Milano is more about the music than the food or drink. The regular set list consists of international jazz players, singers and groups. The drinks are fairly expensive but this will soon be forgiven when you start toe-tappingto the music.Address: Via Borsieri 37, 20159

AlcatrazIf you want a break from fashion brands, the latest trends and just the general designer label crowd then grab a cold Italian beer at Alcatraz. This bar plays pop and rock hits on the busier club nights, as well as a few R'n'Band hip hop favourites. Alcatraz has something for everyone: live music, punk bands, drum and bass and even Pink Floyd tribute acts!Address: Via Valtellina 25, 20159

Riveting restaurants

VinileVintage, retro, nostalgia and more vintage is what you will find at Vinile. With the finest choice of Italian wines, a typical Italian food menu and a collection of records for sale, Vinile is one of the grooviest places to eat, drink and sing.Address: Via A. Tadino 17, 20124

IyoIyo really goes for the minimalistic, chic look and serves equally chic sushi. The fish is said to be the freshest in Milan and the wine isn’t too bad either. The menu choices are quite expansive and the price is in line with quality. If it’s classic sushi served in a typicallystylish Milan restaurant you're after then Iyo is the place to go.Address: Via Piero della Francesca 74, 20154
