We're flying off to the fashion hub Milan for our latest My City, guided by the music duo Hunter/Game. With their unique sound and secret loft parties Hunter/Game manage to keep the creativity and excitement in their music, whilst still having time for their monthly club night 'Just This'.
M: You can find the best food in Milano in some typical osterias or trattorias. One in my mind now is Osteria Stendhal. It's in the middle of the Brera district and you're surrounded by the magical atmosphere of the area.
E: I'd suggest the new tapas restaurant Tom - The ordinary market. I'm managing this local spot with some friends. You can have a good meal and drinks here, and just around the corner you'll find the Stock - a speakeasy club open all the week, where I usually meet all my friends.
Where would you go for a messy night out?
M&E: We recommend Tunnel club. It's an underground club that was opened back in the 90s. We're hosting 'Just This' night one Friday a month here. You'll have fun for sure!
Where would you go to nurse a hangover?
E: Tom’s brunch on Sunday is a good natural remedy for your hangover.
M: We usually go to Santeria, a nice alternative coffee bar in the east zone of the city. If you want to stay in the centre though, there's an American breakfast place called California Bakery. It's a must.
Where do you like to shop?
M&E: Corso di Porta Ticinese is the alternative street of the city where you can find some cool fashion shops. We usually go to friend's showrooms around the city. We'd suggest Antonioli or Antonia.
Where do you go to clear your head?
M: A good spot is the new Garibaldi area. Milan has grown in recent years and this area is completely new, with pedestrian areas, greenery and modern buildings.
E: We love to run in Parco Sempione, the most famous and largest park in the city. It’s close to the oldest buildings of the city and inside there’s the circular arena and the big Sforza Castle; built around AD 1300. We love it when this old construction turns pink during the sunset.
How would you describe the vibe of the city?
M&E: Brera is definitely a fascinating place to visit. During the night you can feel the real milanese atmosphere whilst walking around these streets with their restaurants, bars, night clubs, antique and art shops, colourful street markets and fortune tellers' booths.
A visitor here can find the botanical garden, the astronomical observatory and the Braidense National Library in addition to the best buildings in the city.
