VIP Milan is home to the rich and famous, where actors, designers, celebrity chefs and football players mingle in the city’s exclusive bars and restaurants. Welcome to Milan, the capital of style where one goes out to be seen.
“You can tell who somebody is by the company they keep”; There is the perfect place for everybody in Milan, whether a football player, Hollywood actor, or one of the familiar faces of politics and television. Each has a favourite place, be it a restaurant for some traditional cuisine, a trendy evening hangout or a favourite breakfast joint.
Milan is home to many high-profile hotels like the Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental and Armani Hotel, but international stars in entertainment, politics and business all favour the Hotel Principe di Savoia. Anyone who is someone has slept here, from Madonna to heads of State. It has the charm of yesteryear, the elegance of a 19th century aristocratic palace, rich and opulent, but with warm customer service. The breakfast and brunch on Sundays are among the best in the city.
The Radetzky is the place that invented the Milanese nightlife, happy hour and aperitif culture. It has remained fashionable since 1988 and has boasted a respectable clientele that loves to be noticed.
If looking for a relaxed, cosy and classy after-dinner drink, there is the Bamboo Bar at the Armani Hotel. It boasts a panoramic view, background music, great Martini cocktails. King Giorgio (Armani himself) brought it all together, with his trademark grey furnishings, and an exclusive private area.
No need to be surprised by the paparazzi stationed outside this Milanese institution; There is always some celebrity to spot. Loved by politicians, TV stars, singers and football players, it is the place to be. Since its renovation from the late 19th-century Tuscan trattoria to the trendy restaurant it has become today, Giannino may have lost some of its old charm but certainly not the VIP clientele. As for the cuisine? Italian and moderately creative, serving mostly fish. The food is good, but that’s not the main reason why people go there.
One Michelin star, and two venues: one located behind the historic Piazza Duomo and the newest one to open inside the glittering Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Carlo Cracco, celebrity chef and Masterchef judge is Italy’s most famous chef and one of the most daring (in line with his extreme dishes). For Italians, it’s a visual dream, for foreigners and experts, it’s an exclusive gourmet experience.
Just behind the nightlife of Corso Como and the historic Hollywood nightclub lies an ideal destination for meat lovers seeking undisputable quality. La Griglia di Varrone, with its visible grill, serves up the finest meat in a minimal setting. The menu offers real Japanese wagyu, a tasting of Piedmont tartare and delicious aged beef. Especially loved by men (famous or not).
Former footballer Clarence Seedorf is the owner of a place suitable for true Japanese cuisine lovers and stylish clubbers, and here you can find both. Chef Roberto Okabe plays with burrata mozzarella, ham and Italian ingredients – a formula that worked so well that they opened branches in Porto Cervo, Megève and Rome.
Wealthy Milanese people live in Bosco Verticale, the award-winning skyscrapers in the new Porta Nuova district. Around there, several places have become the breakfast destination of VIPs like blogger Chiara Ferragni, a regular of Macha Cafe. The first place devoted to green pancakes, avocado burgers and Japanese macha tea-based drinks – popular subjects for Instagram – is the perfect for a cup of green, healthy energy.
In the evening, people go dancing in trendy and exotic nightclubs. If the spectacular animalier-style of Just Cavalli, owned by designer Roberto Cavalli, is not to your taste, try Hollywood, a small nightclub that remains an institution in Milan. It’s Champagne galore at Riad Yacout where you’ll find a harem-style reconstruction of a Moroccan riad, complete with belly dancers, couscous and DJ sets.
