A combined restaurant and rooftop bar and pool are situated on the fourth floor just outside the most central parts of Milan. We visited in early in the afternoon, so we could have a bit of quiet time to take photos and enjoy the ambiance. Very shortly thereafter, it was popping. Considering Ceresio 7’s popularity, our early arrival proved to be a good idea.
Seated comfortably in the shade (it was crazy hot in the sun), we ordered one Aperol Spritz each, one espresso and one cappuccino. Refreshing drinks to an equally awesome view! The atmosphere was very nice, complemented by lounge music in the background and views of Milan's skyline and the luxurious pool in the middle of the terrace. This is a rooftop bar we highly recommend if you like chilled atmosphere in a luxurious setting.
RADIO ROOFTOP Situated on the 5-star hotel Melia ME in the vicinity of Milan's train station, the entrance is on the side of the building with a private elevator directly up to the rooftop bar. Once up, we chose between various lounge furniture areas. Our selection ended up to be a table with comfortable chairs in the shade. Regarding beverages our choice fell on coffee and beer. The rooftop terrace was filled with people quite quickly and many tables were already reserved - even on a Monday. Quick service, luxurious decor and great views. Simply a very good rooftop bar in Milan.
