In the most acclaimed, publicized, and talked about zone of Milan of the magnificent years of Milan for "drinking", in Brera, one finds the Jamaica. While it was a meeting place for poets and artists at a time when the world was in a state of revolutionary turmoil, today at the Jamaica students and people of every age meet looking more to drink and have fun than to dwell upon the best social systems. Nonetheless, the Jamaica conserves all of its charm of a vanguard bar with its sparse and simple furnishings which help one to immerse oneself in the days when fashion, decorations and superfluous taste were everything. The tables which today occupy the street, a street free from automobiles, allow you to enjoy a cocktail a few metres from the Pinacoteca di Brera. Who knows, in the evening you could even meet a new boat designer or sailor, more or less by profession who have all but replaced the old cultural vanguard.
