Corso Como 10


You would not actually need our “help” to find out a legendary institution in Milan such as Corso Como 10, the pioneer of the “concept store”, a new way to join culture, style and business, with its “multitasking” philosophy that wisely (and smoothly) blends art, music, design, fashion, photography, cuisine and culture from all around the world … for a unique “slow shopping” experience.

… but there is probably something you don’t know or you won’t discover by reading the Lonely Planet guide or Wikipedia …  the magic “World of Corso Como 10” is  “pet friendly“. Isn’t it PAWesome ?

You will have the chance of visiting the Gallery (truly devoted to art, design and architecture), the bookshop (focused on photography and music), the store (a former garage with a cool selection of design, fashion, art and lifestyle accessories), the roof garden (a unique view on the historical “case di ringhiera” on one side and the new Porta Nuova buildings on the other), the outlet (a bazaar with vintage pieces and famous designer’s past collections, at very discounted prices) … DOGether with your furry friends (… though … this is not a criticism but a free suggestion, there is no offer for trendy pet accessories yet…).

If you need a relaxing break after so many inspirations (or your heart is still “palpitating” for the credit card balance),  the Café Restaurant (open from 11.00am to 01.00am) with its modern and creative Italian cuisine, is waiting for you. Hidden in a quiet and relaxing courtyard, it is surrounded by a conservatory full of green and flowers.  Ideal for a coffee, lunch, tea break, aperitivo, dinner or a blind date (to give a special first impression). Prices are not actually “wallet friendly” but do not forget you always get what you pay for. This is a place you have to visit if you want to smell a real slice of Milanese life and mingle with a cosmopolitan crowd.

What a pity that the 3 suites of the 3 room hotel, the hospitality creature of Corso Como 10, sacred to designers and architects from all around the world, is not actually pet friendly (exception made for very small dogs) a little “stain” on a perfect champion of innovation, elegance and style … but we are very PAWesitive about the future … DOGether for a better “6 legged” world.
