Martini Bar, Milan
A love child born of the union between Martini and Dolce & Gabbana, this bar at the back of the menswear department of the world famous boutique is a beacon for models, entertainers, and soccer stars, who come for the à la carte cocktails and gourmet paninis. Decked almost entirely in black, the barroom has a blood red starburst Murano glass chandelier on the ceiling and red dragon on the mosaic floor. The garden room and patio are slightly more casual but formal attire still recommended.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
