Legendary Milan bar Camparino arrives in London for exclusive residency at Baglioni Hotel London
Bar Camparino, Milan’s timeless icon of Aperitivo culture, is arriving in London for its first-ever UK residency during London Cocktail Month.
The bar will be hosted at the renowned Baglioni Hotel London – a destination for Italian luxury – on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October, and between Tuesday 19 and Sunday 24 October, celebrating the illustrious history of Camparino and the vibrancy of contemporary Aperitivo culture.
The residency offers the truly unique opportunity to enjoy an authentic CAMPARI Seltz, the signature drink of Camparino and original version of the Campari & Soda, never before seen in the UK. Served in the very same way as in Milan, it uses a recreation of Camparino’s famous 1915 soda machines, the only way to ensure a perfectly cooled, sparkling CAMPARI Seltz with its distinctive foamed head.
Established more than 100 years ago by Davide Campari, son of CAMPARI founder Gaspare, Camparino has ever since been home to the artists, intellectuals and celebrities of the day, cementing itself as a must-see mainstay of Milan.
Visitors to the Camparino residency can expect exceptional cocktails mixed by Camparino’s Head Bartender, Tommaso Cecca, and mixologist Mattia Capezzuoli, that capture the complexity and versatility of the distinctive CAMPARI taste. These include timeless classics and contemporary creations, brought to life by the Italian luxury hospitality experts at Baglioni Hotel London.
The residency arrives as the UK continues to fall in love with Aperitivo, embracing the timeless ritual of ending the day and starting the evening with a refreshing, appetite-whetting drink alongside light bites and good conversation.
Camparino’s limited residency consolidates its status as one of the most influential establishments in the world for lovers of mixology and gastronomic innovation. It is at the heart of Italian Week (15 – 21 October) during London Cocktail Month throughout October.
