MAG Café, purposely and perfectly situated near the water in Milan’s Navigli District, embodies a merge between the old and new. Adorned with antique Argentinian counters, cabinets and rustic lighting fixtures that emit a soft glow, MAG gives a wistful feel to a night out, yet owners Flavio Angiolillo and Marco Russo hope that guests will leave having met new people. MAG is a place for those who are passionate about their food and drink; cocktails are not simply looked at as beverages but as works of art. The café’s list of specialty drinks is updated every three to six months to include a diversity of flavour and fizz, with ingredients hailing from a variety of countries around the world. LUXOS recommends trying the “Cocktail of the Month.” Though constantly modified, the drink is formulated with the freshest in-season ingredients. The walls of the café, embellished with ever-changing photos and prints, invite guests into the world of the artist, and the intimate setting nurtures a bond among friends and lovers, old and new.
