H CLub MILAN
The Sheraton Diana Majestic Hotel’s H Club is one of the hottest spots in the city, the place to be in Milan. It's trendy lounge and magical private garden has become a rendezvous spot par excellence for both hotel guests and local residents.
Join members of the Milan ‘in’ crowd who flock to the H Club to enjoy its buzzy atmosphere and extensive drink menu during the famous evening aperitif with its 19:00 - 22:00 cocktail hour, seven days a week. To accompany your choice of liquid refreshment there is also a light buffet of delicious savoury treats.
A combination of convivial ambience, a clientele which includes the movers and shakers of the local fashion and art worlds, cool music and original cocktails have made it the city's most popular after-work pit stop.
Relax, chillout, take it easy or enjoy the resident DJs who play most nights, giving you the chance to shake your body until late. There's even a fashion evening on Thursdays, inviting you to wear your best look.
Free WiFi is also available in all public areas - simply request an access code from your waiter.
"When you read the marketing speak on plush hotel websites, they normally describe their bars as being the 'in place in town'. When you get there, you often find they may serve the best cocktails in the city but to a small crowd of business men and hotel guests rather than the fashionistas of the city. Thankfully, the H Club more than lived up to its big claims.
The actual bar is a beautiful place to drink. You walk through the hotel lobby to get to the huge conservatory, with three additional rooms coming off it. The beautiful gardens are extremely popular and perfect for the Italian summers. We advise booking ahead though to avoid disappointment - every table was fully booked with a beautiful stylish crowd during our Saturday night visit so we were limited to just 30 minutes before having to stand at the bar.
With one of the best Aperitif Happy Hours in the whole of Milan it's not hard to see why fashionable people of all ages flock here on a daily basis. Between 19:00 and 22:00 every day, all drinks are €14 (or €10.50 if you stand at the bar) and you get a fantastic buffet included in the price. With cocktails normally priced at €12, this can be great value if you have just the one drink. However, be careful not to make the same mistake as us and order a beer, cola or water, especially if it's your second drink. It will still cost you €14 - which is rather expensive by anybody's standards regardless of how much food you eat. Do as the locals do and stick to the cocktails - which are fantastic by the way.
The cocktail menu is great with many premium liquors and signature drinks to choose from, including the Indignado, a delicious mix of Hayman's Sloe Gin, Liquor 43, Rose Champagne and fresh strawberries. These really are some of the best drinks to be found in Milan and it's not hard to see why the H Club really is the 'in place in town'."
