Cocktail Bar Brera Milan in Italy by SBG architetti

Damascegliere is a restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of the Brera district in Milan. The conversion, in a two-floor brick vaulted warehouse-type building, has large windows overlooking the now glamourous Corso Garibaldi. The design concept for the restaurant is built around two long counters where clients can sit facing either the barman or the chef at work. The outdoor table has the same peninsula-shaped counter giving a continuity between the two spaces. On warm days the arched window opens up to make the inside of the restaurant completely accessible from the pedestrian road. The kitchen is partially visible through semitransparent glass. New services have been installed leaving the brick vaults untouched; a sophisticated air circulation system provides the possibility of keeping different functions such as the bar and kitchen in the same environment as the main seating area. In the basement the absence of windows and natural light is compensated by luminous shelves and mirrors over a continous padded bench.
