“Aperitif at Radetzky?!” “You’re on! Largo la Foppa 8:30!”. How often have you heard that exchange? Winter or summer, that’s where you’ll find us. We all know Radetzky, symbolic hang out of the Milano da bere open non stop morning ’til evening.
But it’s at night that it really shows what its stuff. Whether it’s simply Tuesday rather than a packed Saturday, it’s the right place for whoever hates boredom. Whether you’re with your friends, chatting and gossiping and getting ready for an unforgettable night out, or you’re with the first date, it’s the perfect place to mix, match, discover, drink and have fun… first and foremost!
Opened in 1988 by Vincenzo Iannetti, over the years the bar has transformed into an institution for socialites and more. It could be because it’s in the perfect spot, so central between Brera and Corso Como, or maybe it’s the atmosphere, always electric and sensual, but if your walking along corso Garibaldi, you can’t pass it up without stopping for a drink.
White wine, Vodka Sour or a simple spritz? Sit outside on the little couches, if you can find a spot! The aperitif is served with a plate of delicious nibbles right at your table, but if you’re still hungry you can fix that by going to the elegant counter fit for a party after 6 pm. Or take your cocktail and mix with the animated and tireless people who are parked just opposite the cafe, especially around the holidays.
We recommend it for brunch, on Sunday, maybe to help pick you up from a serious hangover or for a little lunch with colleagues, it really fits any occasion!
The architecture is simple but elegant, and the double windows on largo la Foppa and corso Garibaldi, make it the perfect spot for a tea with cake (the homemade ones are awesome) on a rainy day.
It’s nice to sit just by yourself, people watching around. Who knows, your soul mate might be having a coffee at the table next to you… So I’m begging you, put yourself together before you leave the house! There’s only one true love!
