Around 5pm of any given day, the sidewalk space in front of Bar Basso comes to life with a fashion parade of professionals and curious tourists. In search of Milan's best cocktails, they enter the old school bar with its deco chandeliers and stacked bar-back where men in white coats serve an array of drinks including incredible martinis and classic Negroni's worthy of the wait on busier Fashion Weeks and summer days.


Arrive before 4pm to avoid the crowds, or after 9pm as everyone moves onto to dinner and drinks elsewhere.
