Special Places: Wes Anderson's Bar Luce in Milan

Posted in:

I've been a Wes Anderson fan for a long time (favourite film: The Royal Tennenbaums, or maybe Darjeeling Limited, but The Grand Budapest Hotel was great too, ok I love them all).

So when we ended up in Milan for a couple of days this spot was at the top of my list in big capital letters.

Designed by the man himself last year, Bar Luce is part of the Prada Museum. And it is so, so perfect.

The whole place feels like a film set. The cakes are straight out of Mendl's. There's a Steve Zissou pinball machine. The waiters all wear bowties. Even the bathrooms were great.

We didn't do much else in Milan. It was August, everything was closed and the streets were really quiet. But I do have two other recommendations for you:

Coming up next – Florence.
