A friend gave me a list of cool places to check out in Milan, but could only do one - as we only had less than five hours.
It was really a no brainer though with 10 Corso Como.
A boutique hotel, restaurant and shop founded by Vogue's Carla Sozzani in 1990.
It features and sells art, culture and fashion pieces.
I really loved the place - the idea of having a lifestyle complex is fabulous. The ambience is really hip and contemporary but also chill and relaxing at the same time. Apparently, it is a popular choice among celebrities. And true enough, spotted Domenico Dolce (of D&G) having lunch that time.
The street is full of energy and character that I expected from Milan.
The facade of 10 Corso Como. Very charming.
The dining area leads to the shop - I like the setup as it offers
a more relaxed and shopping experience.
Our meal would not have been complete without dessert + wine + coffee. :))
The area presents an interesting contrast + mix of the old and present.
The hip and contemporary Corso Como is in the same area as Porta Volta -
a neoclassical arch that was once one of Milan's toll gates.
10 CORSO COMO.
