At the very beginning, it was a fashion brand, then it became an empire. Armani Milan is one of the hotels created by Giorgio Armani and its industry. It is a five stars superior hotel located in the central Via Manzoni in the capital of fashion. Few meters from the most famous luxury shopping street Via Montenapoleone. The hotel is hosted in a huge city block, all dedicated to Armani and its shops. Clothes, bags, accessories, flowers, books, coffee, chocolate and many other products made by the fashion house.
In the middle, there is the hotel, with its 95 rooms and suites, a Michelin star restaurant and a bar on the 7th floor and a spa on the 8th floor. It offers a nice view of the city center, from one side the Duomo and the fashion district and the on the other one the skyscrapers recently built on the way to the central railway station. The position is great, as the inside setting. Each area has a design of furniture and modern equipment. Armani Milan represents the style and philosophy of the brand. It dedicates superb assistance to guests
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 rendezvous on the daily agenda. It means to go to a bar, order a drink and get food included. Most of the people consider it a substitute for dinner. Anyway, it is always a chance to chat and stay with friends and colleagues after work.
I decided to enter for the first time last year when I was going to purchase some gifts. I bought the gift vouchers for the spa because I thought (successfully) to bring some relaxation 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 takes note of your order and brings you what you want. The drink arrives with some snacks.
They bring more snacks at the start of a happy hour time. Some couscous, some canape and pieces of fresh salmon with a lime sauce. Of course, they change the proposals often, but the quality is really at a high level, like 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, including champagne, wines, centrifuged drinks, cocktails with and without alcohol. The selection is very good, according to the quality, especially for wines, spirits, and soft drink brands. The staff is ready to advise to choose the wine. Also, they can give easily and explanations about the cocktails.
A glass of wine, at Armani Milan bar, costs between 18 and 23 euros, it depends on the type. It is quite expensive also for the city range. But you have a 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 each detail. These things have to be paid. If you go to Milan I suggest a visit at least to the bar. You will live a great experience and it is worth. Believe me, you deserve a luxury treatment from time to time.
If you are searching for a luxury experience in Milan, you can book a room and a spa treatment in the Armani Hotel. There are a lot of things to visit before and after a drink. See my tips about the Castle.

I don´t think any glass of wine is worth that price in any bar! The name of the hotel/bar make the prices. I don´t care so much about the name of any hotels, service, reputation and reviews from people is crucial.
I can’t say if you are right or not, because this depends on us, but going often to Milan I noticed something particular. In any bar of the centre you pay very high prices, but the difference is evident. I mean I can pay around 10 € for a glass of wine, seated in a tiny place full of people, with a bad service… I mean it is very expensive and they treat you in a bad way. If I need to meet a person and drink something in the area, I prefer to spend even a bit more, but feel well. The setting, the space, the comfort and the service are important. I loose my money anyway, but at least I am fine when I go out from the bar. This is just my opinion.
