The experience at Armani Milan
I go to Milan often for business and leisure, so I always search for new experiences to enjoy the city. I like to live the habits of locals and explore the new frontiers of luxury. It is full of great hotels in Milan, but Armani Hotel is surely one of the best, with a unique sign of refinement. In Italy in last years the happy hour became an important rendezous in the daily agenda. It means to go in a bar, order a drink and get food included. Most of the people consider it a subsitutte of the dinner. Anyway it is always a chance to chat and stay with friends and colleagues after the work.
I decided to enter for the first time last year, when I was going to purchase some gifts. I bougth the gift vouchers for the spa, because I thought (successfully) to bring some relax to the receivers. Then I stopped in the bar to order a drink. The luxury setting with comfortable sofas welcomes the guests. At a certain hour the light becomes soft. When you enter a person takes you to the table, then a maitre comes to bring the menu. A waiter take note about your order and bring you what you want. The drink arrives with some snacks.
They bring more snacks during the start of the happy hour time. Some cous cous, some canape and pieces of fresh salmon with a lime sauce. Of course they change the proposals often, but the quality is really on high level, as the service. The courtesy of the staff makes the guest feel important. This is the added value of Armani Milan. People use the bar of the hotel also for their work meetings.
The menu and the prices
Go to Armani Milan is surely trendy, that is why it is common to find important people or models. The menu of the bar counts a good variety of drinks, included champagne, wines, centrifuged drinks, cocktails with and without alchool. The selection is very good, according to the quality, especially for wines, spirits and soft drink brands. The staff is ready to give advices to choose the wine. Also they can give easily and clearly explanations about the cocktails.
A glass of wine, at Armani Milan bar, costs between 18 nd 23 euros, it depends on the type. It is quite expensive also for the city range. But you have very high quality of the products and a superb setting. It is an expression of the Armani style and they take care of the guest and of each detail. Obviously these things has to be payed. If you go to Milan I really suggest you a visit at least to the bar. You will live a great experience and it is worth. Believe me, you deserve a luxury treatment time to time.
