Les Ar­cades

This in­for­mal lo­cale in the Porta Nuova dis­trict, made head­lines a few years ago due to Ta­mango, a hal­lu­cino­genic cock­tail, that ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing the BBC, talked about. Based on a se­cret recipe and pre­pared with a mix of African plants and roots, Ta­mango gets its red colour from roselle leaves, a species of hi­bis­cus, which ap­par­ently prompts a sense of eu­pho­ria and a de­sire to dance. Open Tues-Sat 9.30pm- 4am. Via Fratelli Ca­lan­dra, 10. T: 339 852806. Map G6


Italy’s high­est panoramic lounge bar is housed in the skyscraper de­signed by Renzo Pi­ano to host the of­fices of the In­tesa San­paolo bank.
