Milan’s nightlife traditionally centres on two main areas: the designer-label streets around Corso Como and Via Brera and the canal-side Navigli and the adjacent Ticinese quarter, south of the city, where a more mixed clientele enjoys the lively bars, restaurants and nightclubs, some hosting regular live bands. But there are numerous other pockets – including the area around Porta Venezia, Le Colonne di San Lorenzo, Corso Sempione and Porta Romana – and Milan’s relatively small size and car-and-scooter culture mean that people are happy to drive to places out of the centre, so some of the more popular bars and clubs may require a bus, a bike or a quick taxi ride.
