Address
Neighbourhood: Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.

Lovely Cafe & Bar
May 2019 • Couples
After a long morning walking in The Navigli area of Milan we stopped for a while in this Cafe/Bar for a rest. How pleasant it was to sit for a while in such a nice place and somewhere different to a lot of the other Milanese cafes. Coffee & cake was lovely & if it had been later in the day we would probably had a drink. Great customer service.

Heinz Ketchup Cocktail
Feb 2019 • Friends
Pls check uit the picture. Left one is a gin cocktail (Uluwatu punch). That one is fine. The other one, right one, calls the Mexican Trip. BUT me and my friend call it the Heinz Ketchup Cocktail. Do not take that one! At least, the bar is nice. Dogs are welkome.

The perfect place for a cappucino or 4. To have a smoke, to cry, to laugh, to read, to cocktail and listen to a LOT of Queen.

Perfect drinks, served with nothing
May 2018
Drinks are perfect here. I think that an important slice of life of the Milanese mixology passes here. Just a problem. It is better to serve nothing than the really poor dish you bring to every table. One point less for this reason. Anyway recommended place.

Beautiful bar in Milan's navigli
Oct 2017 • Couples
In 4 days in Milan I went twice to MAG. The ambience is super cozy, cool music, amazing Negronis. On Thursday we where able to find seats at the bar and then a table. On Saturday the place was totally packed and there was actually a long line to get a drink. So, as a place during the week for aperitivo and further, I totally recommend. For weekends you might want to get there early.

Good coffee
Sep 2017 • Couples
We agree with most reviews in that this little venue would be most popular in the evenings with a young lively crowd. That said, we 'oldies' enjoyed an excellent cappuccino and a friendly vibe as a respite from our wandering around the highlights of Milan.

Breakfast Time

I reckon most people will come here for the bar at night. I came for the breakfast in the morning. It was quiet but I got to try a legit Italian breakfast and was quite surprised. I liked my cold tea drink, biscuit, and doughnut. This is a very very cool place to chill.

Lovely atmosphere

If you are lucky to get a table or a small space at the bar, please do visit MAG.
They have a cool menu presented where each drink is communicated as a story or a mith. You can directly feel the type of each cocktail you are reading about without having to go through the ingredients, but if you do then you will also discover a different and unusual mix.
The Atmosphere is very nice, romantic and dark, i wish they can find a way of implementing that spirit to the outer part of the pub.
I went there on a date and the mood is perfect for these kind of meetings, i also went there with friends ans it has the same feeling, just a lovely place to visit.
Cheers!
