Summer is coming to an end, and for those used to living in a city like Milan, aperitifs by the sea in front of the sunset are also coming to an end. However, one thing that continues not to be lacking, despite the return from vacation, is people’s desire to get together and spend time together. Even better if in exclusive and exceptional locations with a unique view of the city skyline.
In fact, there is no shortage of special places where to spend a romantic evening or with friends and where to taste sophisticated cocktails signed by the best bartenders in Milan.
Aperitivo in Milan on the terrace, the 3 top locations
Below are the top 3 most exclusive locations for an aperitivo in Milan on the terrace and in which to be enchanted by the view and taste.
Ceresio7, crossroads where art, design and comfort meet
Among the most charming terraces for an aperitivo in Milan, Ceresio 7 can offer the perfect size depending on what you are looking for. As soon as you cross the threshold of the rooftop, a minimal, elegant and visually striking environment, thanks to two pools that enrich the space, stands out before your eyes.
A magical atmosphere where contemporaneity blends seamlessly with tradition by meeting the finest palates and those seeking novelty. Ceresio 7 is a unique location that makes discovery its strong point. It is no accident that details make all the difference, and in an environment where design takes center stage and the search for distinctiveness permeates every space.
From 1940s-style retro furniture, to more intimate and private areas with vintage items, international works and urban and graffiti-inspired paintings, including two valuable original and numbered lithographs by New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, donated to the restaurant by designers Dean and Dan (Dsquared2) from their private collection.
Ceresio 7 is an immersion in aesthetic and taste pleasure thanks to an exceptional cocktail bar and a kitchen that accompanies every single moment, fully reflecting an innovative and sensitive idea to be sought in the dishes.
It is no coincidence that the menu with the drink list recites a phrase, a mantra that anyone browsing through it can find in their surroundings: “We are romantics at heart; this paper is an intrepid weave of passions, connections and inspirations. Inside you will discover not only alcoholic mixtures, but pills of history and art in cocktail making” in a location that offers something new each time.
