“Bread and roses” is an expression gone down in history that points to the need for beauty in everyday life. Everyone deserves things that go beyond their basic needs, for the sole purpose of making life just a little more poetic. And this is exactly what flower bars are meant for.
They are flowery corners, where you can combine the pleasure of choosing a bouquet or a plant with breakfast or an aperitif. The concept is clear. You sit and order, surrounded by flowers, which you can buy or simply admire.
Surrounded by the scents and colors, the revitalizing effect is immediate. Your gaze gets lost in the nuances, while your sense of smell tries to recognize all the floral notes. Milan is truly beautiful for this. When we can’t take refuge in nature, we bring nature to bars.
Here, then, is our selection of places to experience the beneficial effect of flowers with a cappuccino or glass of wine in your hand.

But the undisputed stars are the flowers.There are ornamental plants, roots and bulbs coexisting with strings, threads, ropes and wrought iron. The encounter between different worlds gives life to unique and immediately recognizable compositions. This is a creative laboratory that draws its lifeblood from the vitality of plants. Rosalba Piccinni’s experience will be sure to satisfy every request!
