Bar 35 is quickly becoming my new neighborhood go-to. It’s quite small but a very relaxed atmosphere, and you’re always bound to strike up a conversation with someone while you’re there (which isn’t so usual in Milan). Unfortunately there’s no outdoor seating, but in the summer they put benches out in front so you can sit and smoke like a true Italian. You’ll find two bartenders: a black guy with dreads (Charlie, maybe?) and a guy with a ponytail (who I secretly have a crush on). They are extremely cool and always very accommodating. Aperitivo is an already prepared plate, which is not bad, but get there before 9 if you want it! This is also where you may catch a sighting of Signora Yolo….
