Hg2 : The Hedonist

Plastic

One of the most famous nightclubs in Milan: Pop artist Keith Haring wrote in his diaries that Plastic was his favourite club in the world; Grace Jones and Andy Warhol have also been Plastic people. Since 1980, Plastic has always been on the edge: risqué, kitsch, and always very now.

rnIts enduring success lies in its ability to stay ahead of the game – by Milan’s standards; it’s one of the few places playing indie rock and French music (more breathy Brigitte Bardot, less MC Solar); also electro and ‘sperimental’. With the proud claim of having started ‘door selection’ in Milan, offering to buy a bottle won’t work here – it’s just based on whether they like you (and your clothes).

rnGlamorama is the word – drag queens, vintage clothes-horses and chic garçons all get the nod. Think camp and saucy to go with the décor: retro science-fiction, 1950s vinyl diner furniture, and a ‘Bordello’ room. It’s most fashionable to turn up at 4, since it’s open till 6am – unofficially, of course
