Steps from the Duomo, in the heart of Milan, the art deco façade of The Gray hotel masks 21 à la mode bedrooms kitted out with glam gadgetry. The lobby’s two-seater fuschia-upholstered swing hints at the hotel’s playful in-room style: vivid hues and tactile textures – cream padded-leather, faux animal pelts and two-tone wood veneers – to entice guests to get cosy. Look beyond your love nest to find mod Mediterranean cuisine in design-led Le Noir restaurant, and sample G Bar’s tempting cocktails while curled up together on a canopied sofa on the Aria roof terrace.

Lauded across the city, the hotel’s restaurant Le Noir lives up to its name with black-lacquered surfaces. The restrained minimalist style is tempered with whimsical hints of zebra print and low-lit chandeliers fashioned out of cutlery; it’s a suitable setting in which to sample a menu of creative Mediterranean fare. Delicate fish, hearty slabs of meat and seasonal vegetables, are accompanied by a local vintage.
Cosy up at an intimate corner table with a bottle of barolo at Le Noir, or secure a canopied sofa on the terrace for a smidgen more privacy.
Breakfast is served from 7am–11am, lunch from 12:30pm–2.30pm and dinner from 7:30pm–10.30pm. The Aria terrace and G Bar both stay open until 1am.
The restaurant’s à la carte menu is available in-room from 12.30pm–2.30pm and 7pm–10.30pm; otherwise, snacks such as smoked salmon and insalata caprese are available round the clock.
Grab a pre-dinner drink at the hotel’s intimate watering hole G Bar. Sip a zesty mojito surrounded by copper-enveloped walls or grab a red-velvet stool at the bar. For laid-back alfresco drinks and light meals head upstairs to the Aria terrace.
