Good morning and welcome back on Fillyourhomewithlove.
We are in Milan, a few steps away from Naviglio Grande, one of the most popular neighborhoods in Milan.
Welcoming us, one of the most suggestive and particular hotels ever seen: The Yard Milan
As soon as you enter the hotel, you can notice a large area dedicated to restaurant, reception and bistro.
The hotel takes shape in 2013 thanks to the fantasy of a dreamer who sees in this project a unique environment, something never seen before.
And we must say it’s totally true.
It’s a real experience on board a location that recalls a parallel dimension, made of refined furnishings from all over the world.
Velvets, curtains and home decor objects fill every inch of this wonderful boutique hotel.
Welcome to The Yard Milan
From the entrance you can breathe the desire of the property to give its guests moments of total lightheartedness within a nice and unique environment.
Wide spaces with sofas, armchairs and seats of various kinds are laid out in order to create private relaxation areas in which to meet with friends for lunch, dinner or just for an aperitif.
Chandeliers and stands illuminate this industrial-style environment with furnishings from all over the world.
During my stay at The Yard Milano I was able to feel “the dreamy air” breathing inside its walls.
It reminds me a lot America, especially New York.
It reminded me of some locations I had the opportunity to visit during my stay in the Big Apple.
Let’s talk about the room
Maison Wicket: my room at The Yard Milan
The shots you’ll see coming next were taken during my stay at the Yard Milano and depict the fabulous Maison wicket.
In addition to Junior Suite, Suite and Depandance, at the Yard you can also stay at the maisons.
They are real apartments furnished and arranged as comfortable houses that reach up to 75 square meters.
They are furnished with velvet sofas and armchairs, bookcases filled with books perfectly placed on the shelves, lamps and comfortable sofas.
Each room is furnished and equipped according to a specific theme.
In this case, the key theme for the Maison wicket is cricket.
In every corner of the room there are clubs and cricket masks: they are even in the bathroom, in the relaxation area or above the headboard of the bed.
The entrance to the room is on the ground floor and, following a private staircase, you reach the first floor where the room is developed.
Immediately we are welcomed by an elegant private bar that overlooks a living room furnished with velvet armchairs, carpets and designer lamps.
The room then continues with an area dedicated to the king size bed with a library and armchairs always covered in velvet.
In front of the bed there is a relaxation area composed of two rooms: one dedicated to the shower and the other to the bathroom.
At The Yard Milano you can taste exclusive cocktails, eat elaborate dishes or gourmet pizza.
The Doping Club at the Yard Milan
” THE DOPING CLUB IS A COCKTAIL BAR THAT REPRESENTS THE ESSENCE OF A WONDERFUL JOURNEY THROUGH CULTURES AND FLAVORS, WITH A WIDE SELECTION OF ALCOHOL AND HOMEMADE SPIRITS.
OUR BARCHEMIST KNOWS THE SECRETS OF HOSPITALITY AND PLAYS WITH SPIRITS, BITTER, FRUIT AND EXCELLENT HERBS; IN A WORD COCKTAIL, THE BEST FOR PREPARATION, PRESENTATION, DOSAGE AND ORIGINALITY “
It is with these words that the Doping club introduces itself to the world.
It is possible to taste unique cocktails both in the large outdoor space and in the interior, characterized by a refined and fancy furniture.
Ancient and modern furnishings are mixed, giving way to refined and exclusive fabrics, creating a perfect mix and identification.
Every object is perfectly inserted in the context and, lo and behold, it can be purchased by those who would like to.
As I mentioned a few lines ago, in addition to tasting unique cocktails, you can also eat dishes created by the chef at the gipsy restaurant or gourmet pizza at the Dirty gym.
Browsing the menu of gipsy immediately stands out the desire of the chef to accompany his guests along this journey, to say the least, unforgettable.
He defines it “a gypsy journey into the kitchen, to find Italian flavors and excellences and more, to seek simplicity and good things”.
Raw materials such as beef, veal, octopus, potatoes, crustaceans, tuna and other ingredients are mixed in the hands of the chef who creates every day exclusive dishes to be enjoyed during lunch, dinner or brunch on Sundays.
The pastry chef Martina Fabozzi creates every kind of unbelievable cakes.
Tiramisu, babà, sorbets, ice cream and much more animate the menu of desserts that constantly changes.
And what about pizza?
” AMONG WOODEN BENCHES, STEEL CABINETS AND GYMNASTIC STANDS BEHIND THE LONG MARBLE COUNTER OUR PIZZA WORKERS WORK WITH PASSION A LEAVENED DOUGH UP TO 90 HOURS “
Gourmet pizza can be made to your liking, starting from a margherita, focaccia or marinara base and garnishing it by combining the desired ingredients.
Thanks to the long leavening, you can enjoy a light and perfect pizza even for the most demanding.
What else. If you live in Milan or if you happen to pass through, even for a few hours, don’t miss this enchanted place.
It will certainly leave you a mark.
