The bar is in the centre of Navigli. The atmosphaire and the music is great. The bar has a large cava. You have to try FARMILY, is their homemade drink. Flavio, the barman was very helpfull and you can ask him for your preferance cocktail.

Good and special cocktails. Loved the atmosphere and the uniqueness of the place. Friendly service and prices are not very expensive so you can enjoy a few cocktails or drinks and free snacks. A must for a drink in Milan.

This was a stop on a walking food tour of the area and we are so glad to have stopped. The drinks were made with an understanding that you usually only see from a chef. My Negroni del Marinaio was amazing and the family mule...More

This is a bar more than a Cafe. Does serve you plate of apertivo and a sandwich but this is not a place you come for a hearty meal. However as a bar this is truly awesome. Great drinks, super creative and nice enough service...More

We had a lovely time at Mag Cafe, a vintage cocktail bar in Navigli with a huge drinks menu - no food, though. If you arrive during the Aperitivo hours, you will get a small plate of cheese and ham, but nothing more.

I'm in love with this cafe. Excelent place, cozy and perfect. Next time when I visit Milan I will go there for sure. Coffee outside taste like the best cake with Cream ;) for me 5/5. Grazie mille

It is a popular place where youngsters hang out and drink during summer evenings. They make amazing and affordable cocktails and have a nice clientele. Just sitting outside and absorbing the atmosphere that Navigli offers, along with the vibing crowds of people walking by -...More

Visited for a drink as the sun went down during the "happy hour". Cocktails were fantastic. The free food was nothing to rave about... but it was free.

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
