I was out and about at Café Bistrot, an arty bar a stone’s throw from my home in Milan, last night. Aside from being a friendly place, this bar is also rather photogenic and live music can often be heard there.

Betty Boop can be found here too:
It’s pretty good having cool places virtually on your doorstep.
