Makr Shakr Opens Robotic Bars in Milan and London

Overlooking the iconic cathedral, the Milan bar is located on the rooftop of luxury hotel TownHouse Duomo and open to the public from 26 July 2019. Modelled on the gestures of Italian dancer and choreographer Marco Pelle from the New York Theatre Ballet, the robotic bar by Makr Shakr is the most advanced drink-mixing robot ever put on the market, available for purchase or rent. Using Makr Shakr’s exclusive mobile app, users can either select pre-made recipes developed by international bartenders, or create and name customized cocktails of their own. ‘Industrial robots are going to change the global workforce, but many people have never had the opportunity to see them – let alone interact with them’, adds Carlo Ratti, founding partner of CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati firm that designed the system.

Fondazione Prada – Milan, Italy. Not in the very center of Milano, but just a 10-minute walk from the metro station Lodi T.i.b.b., you’ll find Fondazione Prada, a modern building that houses a contemporary art and culture institution co-chaired by fashion icon Miuccia Prada.

Fondazione Prada – Milan, Italy

You’ve obviously heard the name Prada in connection with high fashion, but may not know that Miuccia is also strictly connected to Milano. She has lead Fondazione Prada with her husband Patrizio Bertelli since 1995. It is a place dedicated to art and culture: The institution organizes film festivals, exhibitions, design projects and more. Bosco Verticale – Milan, Italy. Bar Luce – Milan, Italy. Inspired by the classic bars of Milan in the 1950s and ’60s, the Bar Luce cafè is entirely designed by the American director Wes Anderson, in that very unique Wes Andersonian way.

Bar Luce – Milan, Italy

When Fondazione Prada in Milan was opened, the director was invited to design a coffee bar inside the building. Based on strong pastel colors, vintage wallpaper patterns, and quirky details, every square inch exudes the whimsical atmosphere of a Wes Anderson film. The furniture and decor is also an homage to the typical midcentury Milanese cafè design, while the ceiling recalls the vaulted glass roof of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. Anderson has said the place was conceived as a bar where he would want to spend his afternoon, and where writers can go to be inspired. Despite his well-known maniacal sense of symmetry, the place is designed asymmetrical to be “lived” by the visitors in any space and any point of view, without a dominant perspective.

BackDoor 43 – Milan, Italy. At number 43 on Ripa di Porta Ticinese, a long, canal-side street filled with luxury restaurants, a minuscule wooden bar quietly stands out.

BackDoor 43 – Milan, Italy

BackDoor 43, as it is known, claims to be the world’s smallest bar. Guests can book the space for two hours at a time, during which they’ll find themselves spirited away from the hustle and bustle of city life in their own private club. The bar is just 43 square feet (4 square meters) in size, including a bathroom. There are just three stools for patrons to sit and sip upon. A key and a secret password are also required for entry.

Secrecy is key here: If takeaway drinkers do sneak a peek through the slot, they’ll find the bartender’s face obscured by a mask. The bar uses every square inch of its closet-like space. The bartender mixes on a tiny countertop complete with a camp stove.
