There is a new bar in town. The answer to the recent clamor about the opening of a Starbucks in Milan is a new place for coffee but this time it is 100% Italian.
RED Bistrot Libreria has just opened a new store in the city of Milan. While the first one welcomes its guests in the Porta Nuova district with its modern and overwhelming skyscrapers, the opening of RED Bistrot Libreria in the Brera district marks the beginning of a new relationship between the company and the city of Milan.
The building chosen to host this new bar dates back to the beginning of the XXth century and overlooks Corso Garibaldi which features plenty of design stores, vintage boutiques and restaurants. The whole area looks exactly like it used to and the aim of the interior designers of the RED Bistrot Libreria was to preserve this urban soul and merge it with new iconic architectures.
The open kitchen in the main hall welcomes the customers and allows them to experience a wide range of delicacies from the very first minute of their visit of the 350 square meters area of the restaurant.
The menu features quotes from books and each item available on both the food and the wine list is associated to the title of a book which served as inspiration.
More than 11.000 book titles are available in the book shop area of the RED Bistrot Libreria which is actually spread all over the place. Tables and chairs for the 80 guests are surrounded by bookcases and shelves allowing each customer to enjoy the reading of their favorite books with the excellence of Italian food.
The grand opening of the RED Bistort Libreria was grand in every sense. The actors of the Piccolo Teatro di Milano, the city’s most important school of performing arts, surprised the guests visiting the store for the first time with a piéce written for this occasion.
The opening of RED Bistrot Libreria was enjoyable for everyone and we believe that this is just the beginning of a new trend in the city of Milan.
