As the beating heart of the hotel, Mandarin Bar & Bistrot offers a seductive mix of contemporary music, delicious dishes and bespoke cocktails. The black and white marble mosaic covered floor and walls combined with a large central bar and eclectic mix of furniture creates the perfect backdrop for drinking and dining. Catering both to guests and the city’s discerning style crowd, Mandarin Bar & Bistrot enjoys a relaxed atmosphere with three distinctive areas; the bar bistro, an inside lounge and an outside courtyard area featuring lounge sofas, tables and soft lights. The bar bistro menu features a mix of Italian dishes, salads and Antonio Guida’s reinterpretation of traditional sandwiches, served with a modern twist. Pastry chef, Nicola Di Lena’s patisserie pays homage to Italian “Alta Pasticceria”.
As evening falls, the atmosphere changes as Mandarin Bar & Bistrot morphs into one of Milan’s most exclusive nightspots. Evenings are marked by two key moments, ‘Aperitivo’ and ‘After Dinner’. At 6pm, lights are dimmed, music starts to play, gourmet finger food is served and the mixologists surprise guests and patrons alike adding an Oriental twist to classic Italian cocktails. After dinner, Italy’s finest variety of carefully selected grappa and amari, together with the cocktail menu, are offered .
