NIGHTLIFE in Milan
When you think about Milan there is one thing that you don't have to forget: Milan is not only the capital of fashion, business, but it is also the city in which nightlife means much more than a simple drawn-out dinner. (See restaurants).
The main two areas to go out in Milan, are: around the Brera gallery and the Navigli area. Milan offers lively bars, restaurants and nightclubs, moreover some of them include live music, especially jazz music and some local bands. Clubbing starts at about 11.00 pm running to about 4 am, but if you want to be ready, start your nightlife with with the happy hour aperitifs, from about 18.00 on in one of the most famous bars and cafés. In milanese clubs the cost of a drink is about 7euro and several clubs have introduce a pay-as-you-leave-system. That is why you receive a ticket at the door that you can use for the cloakroom and it permits you to buy drinks and food. Do not loose this ticket because the fine is very high. Several clubs offer you dinner too, before the nightlife starts. This is an oppurtunity to join together food and live jazz music which is often played during dinner. At least but not the last think about your style because the most important point of going out in milan is to look your best! However if you want to have an alternative scene and less expensive, you should try the Centri Sociali with cheap or sometimes free entertainment as concerts and film showings. They also contain bars and vegetarian restaurants.
Bypass the queue with your prebooked ticket to the top of Milan's Duomo — Milan Cathedral — the city's most notable attraction and one of the world’s largest churches. Take the elevator up the steepest portion of the church, followed by just 50 steps to the rooftop, where you'll enjoy sweeping views of Milan and admire the cathedral's statues, spires and buttresses up close.
