The Camparino, symbol of the Milanese happy hour, was born in 1915 from an idea of Davide Campari, son of Gaspare, inventor of the homonymous red bitter, known throughout the world.
It is not just a simple bar, but a real milestone of the Milanese capital, rising in the wake of the innovation of the artistic and cultural movements of the twentieth century. Located inside the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, where its creator Davide Campari is said to have come to light, it was first a venue for intellectuals and celebrities.
Indeed, it boasts among its goers some important exponents of the Scapigliatura and Futurism movements such as Arrigo Boito and Tommaso Marinetti, who used to discuss culture and politics while enjoying a glass of the delicious red drink.
The Camparino quickly became an icon, entering the heart of city folks and enshrining the aperitif as a ritual, thanks to its atmosphere that still retains the details of Art Nouveau, its food and especially the taste of its cocktails, becoming a meeting place where people feel at home. Whether it is for a simple drink after work or for a special occasion, the Camparino is always a good choice.
If you’re looking for an authentic experience, do not hesitate to ask the Reception, they will be glad to show you the way. But no worries: the Camparino is only 4 metro stops away from Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale!
