BYBLOS MILANO

Byblos Milano, a new eating-drinking-dancing spot, is inspired by North American architecture and created by the fashion brand’s art director, Manuel Facchini, in collaboration with architect Andrea Langhi. On the top floor, the ultrachic restaurant Nove is surrounded by a big dance floor with two bars, which turns into an exclusive VIP space after dinner.

Outside, two more bars and another VIP area frame a glass dance floor floating over a swimming pool.

MORE GLITTER

Bright colors and catchy music are the main ingredients of Glitter’s latest outpost in Milan. DJ 412, DJ Barbarella and the Glitz Girlz welcome the crowd at Il 56, Glitter’s new location, at 56 Via Tucidide. Founded in 1999, the club was formerly housed in the HD nightclub and is known in Milan for its stylish and ironic mood, and as a favorite haunt for people from the music and fashion biz. But don’t blink — Glitter sparkles only on Saturday nights.
