guide to Milan nightlife can often be found on the Wednesday and Thursday
editions of the city's newspapers. However, these papers are
usually in Italian, so for English language guides, go to the tourist
information complex at the Piazza Duomo, where flyers and other notices
can be found.
If you love the performing
arts, you shouldn't let a visit to the Teatro alla Scala pass
you by. Classical music and opera buffs should be pleased to know
that the Giuseppe Verdi Symphony Orchestra performs from September
until May at the Auditorium di Milano located along Via S. Gottardo
42. Film aficionados can catch films in English with Italian subtitles
which are shown once a week at the Anteo, in Via Milazzo 9.
For party animals, favorite night owl haunts are
the Navigli and Ticinese areas. Brera is also quite happening at
night. If you're looking for a good pub, or the best place
to enjoy a good pint of beer, you can visit Bar Magenta on Via Carducci,
Corso Magenta. In La Brera, young crowds gather at the El Tombon
de San Marc, along Via San Marco 20 on Via Montebello.
Another popular spot frequented by the young is
Bar Margherita, where lively jazz tunes can be enjoyed with a glass
of wine or some delicious grappa. This bar can be found on La Brera,
along Via Moscova 25.
Milan music and dance clubs will often ask you
to pay a cover charge to get in, which may range anywhere from 10€
- 15€, and even more if there are big-name acts playing onstage.
Club hours vary, and opening and closing schedules are dependent
on the crowd and the season.
