Best Nightlife spots in Milan

When the sun finally goes down in Milan, a variety of exciting things to do in Milan starts to awake. Milan has an eclectic nightlife and there’s something for everyone depending on your taste whether it’s: a hip rooftop bar looking over Milan or a cool off-the-wall underground club. If you want a bit of home, head to one of the many popular Irish bars in Milan or sip on freshly made cocktails in one of Milan’s boutique cocktail lounges. A night out in Milan is an experience and not to be missed.

Dress smart, no matter where you go. After a certain hour, the unwritten rule in Milan states a dress code. Sip on cocktails with the locals or drink Prosecco and Champagne with the rich and famous in Milan. Happy hour in Milan starts really early, which tourists like to take advantage of, but most of the time it results in you and your friends not having enough stamina to go out and experience the nightlife in Milan. Locals tend to avoid happy hour and wait for the real fun to begin in the evenings because they know it’s going to go well into the night.

The Milanese people are night owls, and they don’t come out to play well after dark. Head where the locals go for cheaper drinks otherwise it’s quite possible you’ll be paying through the roof. Despite what you might think, Milan during the night isn’t only for the beautiful. You’ll see young and old of both sexes heading to their favorite bar or café to spend a fun evening with their family and friends. The nightlife scene in Milan is definitely diverse, and you’ll surely find a place to hang out which reflects your lifestyle.

Michele Sara

Milan's Fashion Outlets with a Personal Shopper

Sara was delightful and she certainly knows where to do good value shopping in Milan. She was very patient and helpful and I am going home with some very good purchases.

Nancy Armando

Milan’s Hidden Masterpieces: Private Bike Tour

We had a wonderful 2 hour bike tour with Armando. I wish we had done it earlier in our stay in Milan since we learned so many things we would want to come back and see and do.

Adrienne Clarissa

Accademia Museum & Family Treasure Hunt through Florence

Clarissa is an AMAZING guide. This was our first experience using Withlocals and we were so lucky to have her as our guide. She was excellent with our kids (ages 4 & 8) and kept them entertained throughout our tour. She found great opportunities for them to sit, when possible. She taught us things we would NEVER have learned on our own despite extensive preparation about our visit. We are seasoned independent travelers and were skeptical of using a guide and are SO happy we made the choice to pick Clarissa to show us her amazing city. We will ABSOLUTELY book with her again the next time we are in Florence.

The Hottest Nightspots in Milan

  • If you’re in search of nothing in particular when heading for a night out in Milan, make your way to the busy Navigli district. Over the years Navigli in Milan has earned itself a good reputation for a fun night out. Here you’ll find every kind of bar, pub and café under the sun. There are also a number of non-touristy bars that offer live music on certain nights, so it’s worth checking out. The area gives some of the world’s biggest cities’ hotspots a serious run for their money.
  • The other area of Milan where you can seriously let your hair down is Corso Como in the Girabaldi district. If it’s fine dining and bespoke bars you’re looking for, this is where it’s all at. The area’s home to some of the best hotels in Milan and tends to attract a certain caliber of people. You’ll get a chance to rub shoulders with some of Italy’s rich and famous, so adhering to the dress codes is a must.
