5 Rooftop Bars for a great Milan Aperitivo!

Rooftop Milan Aperitivo

The latest trends for a typical ‘Milan Aperitivo’? The Rooftop Bars, of course!


On top of a hotel or on top of a museum, having a drink observing the skyline has become a classic. And Milan, as all the big metropolis, is no exception!

The Rooftop Bars are the new trendy meeting venues in the city, better if with live music or dj set. Just relax and, while you sip a cocktail, enjoy panoramic views of the city. Admire the new skyscrapers, the green Sempione Park or the spires of the Duomo…they will look very close!

So, choose among these 5 very chic terraces where a Roof Milan Aperitivo is a must!


  • Duomo 21 (via Silvio Pellico, 2 – Duomo district). Both a restaurant and a bar with an elegant ambiance, it’s in the heart of the city centre, next to the iconic gothic Cathedral. Its strong point is the Martini’s branded terrace where to order a drink with a unique view of the Duomo.
  • Sky Terrace Milano Scala (via dell’Orso, 7 – Brera district). The 8th-floor terrace at Hotel Milano Scala has an amazing urban garden on the roof! It offers breathtaking 360 views over the city and is perfect for an elegant and romantic happy hour.
  • Ceresio 7 (via Ceresio, 7 – Garibaldi district). A scenic restaurant and American bar on the rooftop of an historic palace (Dsquared² fashion group). The New York style lounge area expands on the two spectacular terraces with pool and elegant sofas. “Love in Portofino” is the new, great, summer cocktail. The view of the skyline is stunning!
  • Terrazza 12 (via Durini, 28 – S. Babila district). At the tenth and last floor of The Brian & Barry Building in Piazza San Babila, an elegant lounge bar with a beautiful 360 view of the city. Here you find a list of unique and original drinks and can marvel at the view of the little ‘Madonnina’, the gold-plated statue on top of the Duomo.
  • Terrazza Boscolo Hotel (corso Matteotti, 4 – Fashion district). In the fashion quadrilateral, here is a design hotel with an elegant terrace open to all, not just to the customers. Ideal for those who love an exclusive atmosphere, here you can admire a beautiful view of the Duomo. Live events and special evenings can also be organized.
