10 Corso Como - a place for rest and inspiration

  BY Alina Borghese   26 March 2016

One of the most ambitious projects in Milan - a quiet oasis among the ever-buzzing city. Corso Como 10 - a place where you can relax and culturally enrich yourself.
The project is a fruit of a fantasy and the work of its ideological inspirer, Carla Sozzani. In nearby 90's it started as an art-gallery. Nowadays, 10 Corso Como complex includes a restaurant, cafe, bookstore, high-end clothing store, mini-hotel, terrace and an art gallery.
10 Corso Como store is nothing more than a place where you can find absolutely unique clothing, accessories, and perfumery from well-known designers such as Azzedine Alaia, Benedetta Bruzziches, Comme Des Garcons, Loewe, Maison Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen and many others.
Furthermore, Corso Como 10 is a great place to enjoy your morning espresso or an aperitif on Friday night. A chic garden inside the café-restaurant adds to a pleasant conversation over a glass of expertly prepared cocktail accompanied with exclusive dishes.
It is worth noting that for this gastronomic and aesthetic pleasure you'll have to pay above average. Coffee prices start from € 3.50 for a cup of espresso. While freshly squeezed orange juice will cost you 10 euros. Prices for a brunch start from 18 euros and a service fee is 10%, which is included in your bill. 
The best time to visit this bohemian place on the busy Corso Como street is for a brunch after 5pm every Saturday and Sunday. Why? Because here you will fully understand what is a new brunch trend in European restaurants, which is closely related to a combination of breakfast and lunch, but later in the day. After 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, every resident in the city regains consciousness after a night of 'adventures' in local clubs and bars ready to get down to a full meal.
In the summer, this place attracts even more visitors. The doors open to the roof terrace, which offers excellent view of skyscrapers in the Porta Nuova district.
Also, unique 10 Corso Como offers 3 rooms in a small designer-hotel. The prices for a room start from 290 euros a night. The discount is offered if you book for longer than one week. 
But that's not all what is offered by ingenious Sozzani.
Art gallery, which marked the beginning of the whole complex, every day attracts thousands of tourists and residents - free entrance and central location can not fail to attract people to see an amazing collection of contemporary art.
The conclusion is simple. If you want to find a really interesting place not only for a dinner, but also to learn something new, visit a gallery or buy an absolutely exclusive item then the 10 Corso Como is the ideal choice for you.
