BEST AREA TO STAY IN MILAN FOR NIGHTLIFE

BEST AREA TO STAY IN MILAN FOR NIGHTLIFE

  • Stay in the Navigli district if you are looking for nightlife in Milan. Here you can find the most popular "cocktail bars", trendy bars and clubs.

Navigli district is a convivial area where locals gather for an aperitif or an informal dinner with friends. It is one of the most popular and crowded meeting places in Milan after 6.00pm.
The prices are affordable: with around € 10 you have a drink and a huge buffet of dishes to choose from. Here in Italy we call it "Apericena".

At the end of the day, on the bank of the Naviglio Grande there is a whole set of tables and chairs ready to host people to meeting for a drink, who enjoy their post-work relaxation in one of the most fascinating glimpses of the whole city. The accommodations here are mostly railing houses within courtyards.

BEST AREA TO STAY IN MILAN FOR NIGHTLIFE


I stayed a night in an apartment on Naviglio view right above the premises where happy hour is held. The atmosphere is suggestive but the night is quite noisy especially on weekends for this advice to choose an accommodation located in a courtyard that has the most "sheltered" room to avoid hearing people talking all night long .

  • πŸ‘‰ I recommend the Milano Navigli Apartment a stone's throw from the canals, but out of the chaos of nightlife.

Brera is one of the nightlife districts in Milan (like Navigli, Corso Como ...) you will always find people who crowd the alleys and the clubs. A tourist area but that keeps its charm.
