“Not to be missed: Via Brera 32 opens the showcases of Jamaica, a local historian of Milan who has been loved by artists since the '50s. It's a strange place, so glamorous as the hand, where you can order a glass of wine and a sandwich and not feel out of place while on the table side by side they have international cocktails. The Jamaica bistrot is open until 2am, but given the reduced space it is better to book. Phone: 02 876723 - 2.6 Km on foot (33 minutes) - Or M3 for 3 stops (22 minutes) ”
