Frida Bar & Shop


Bar, post industrial garden and shop, this is Frida, the undisputed actor, soul place and meeting point of the “Isola” artistic neighbourhood of Milan.

Let’s start form “Particelle Complementari”, an “alternative” lab for buying (or selling) fashion for women, men and kids, with a special focus on vintage stuff and creations such as clothing and accessories of young and emerging designers for a sustainable, recyclable, ethical, stylish, creative and better world.  You will also find cruelty free cosmetics, vegan fragrances and other bio products. A very original and hidden treasure to find unique pieces for your best friends and bring back home a”pezzo di cuore” (literally “a piece of heart”) of the new trendy side (and soul) of Milan. Absolutely PAWesome!

Let’s jump now to the bar. This is a “pet friendly” spot (dogs always on leash … remember that you must be the one to give “the good example”) where you can start sipping your aperitivo since 6pm (free buffet till 9pm) and going on till late night, a perfect condition to meet your friends, enjoy some good drinks and music.

The couryard is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine, a beer or one of the 80 cocktails “à la carte” and share the table with unknown fellows (with 2 or 4 legs) who will turn out to be your best friends in a couple of extra shots.

Another original “element” of this spot is “FREEdom”. Just make them your (free) proposal and you might get the (free) chance of exhibiting your paintings on the walls, performing your art in the post industrial garden, presenting your book during the sunday “branz” (another original way to say brunch),  sharing your social cause … in other word “be yourself” on Frida’s stage.

What else… ? The staff is friendly and informal, prices are very reasonable and the crowd (locals and strangers) are “mixing & matching” pretty well. Just one suggestion: give it a go !
