Found atop the Brian & Barry Building overlooking the Piazza San Babila, Terrazza 12 is a rooftop lounge bar with vintage flair and serious appeal. It’s not just the drinks, which are great, or the menu of dishes, which runs the gamut from aperitivo snacks to full meals. No, it’s the heady combination of all that, and the amazing location.
At Terrazza 12, you can bask in the Italian sunshine with an Aperol Spritz. Recline on a sleek, geometric-print couch with olives and a martini. Kick back with friends and sundowners as the light dims and Milan’s buildings are thrown into silhouette. You see, from here, you can take in a massive sweep of the city’s skyline, making for a dramatic sight, no matter what time of day you visit. And, happily, Terrazza 12 is open afternoons and evenings throughout the week, so there are more than enough opportunities to get your fill of Milan from above.
Even inside, the view’s pretty good – this time of big screens, framed vinyl on the walls, and plenty of art. Modern furnishings, numerous stylish objets d’art, and some of the city’s bright and beautiful people also make for a pleasing sight. When the party gets going here, you never want to leave.
