Bar Luce, a café designed by Wes Anderson for Fondazione Prada, is the stuff of Instagram dreams. The vintage pinball machines and jukebox, the veneered wood wall panels and the bubblegum pink and powder blue Formica furniture are just begging to be photographed. They are also reminiscent of Italian popular aesthetics from the 1950s and 1960s, as well as many Wes Anderson’s sets, particularly for his film The Grand Budapest Hotel. Order a brioche and coffee at the bar so that you can chat with the mustachioed waiters operating the old Faema coffee machine.

Time Out tip: The Fondazione Prada is one of Milan’s premier contemporary arts venues. There are usually at least two or three temporary exhibitions on view, while the space itself, designed by Rem Koolhaas’ Rotterdam-based OMA practice, functions as a type of permanent exhibition.
