Now that you know about Milan's LGBTIQ friendly attitude and the most fashionable clubs, are you looking for interesting venues for a relaxing aperitivo or an enjoyable after dinner?

A map of these venues follows

1. Mono

Located in Porta Venezia District, this typical bar is one of the most famous venues for aperitivo; here you can sip a cocktail made of fresh fruit accompanied by hot dishes in a enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere. Its spaces, with their small dimensions and minimal 70s-style furniture, are some of LGBTIQ community’s (but not only) favourite attractions, especially on Sunday night when the music played by a resident Dj or by small bands allow the perfect chance to make new acquaitances.

2. Blanco

Built following the Formentera’s homonym bar’s example, that also inspired its elegant and sober style, this well-known venue close to Porta Venezia is renowed for its long-lasting opening times that start from breakfast up to the after dinner time. In its interior, rigorously all-white, and in its outer spaces, people can enjoy an aperitivo made of finger food liven up by sought-after music played by a ever-different and eclectic Dj set. Thanks to its central position, Blanco is perfect to sip a drink before a fun night at the disco or simply to enjoy a nice evening in good company in a heterogeneous environment.
