Expat Pubs in Milan

Walking into Pogue Mahone’s is like finding a small piece of Ireland in the centre of Milan. It’s not your typical Italian wannabe Irish pub where the d├ęcor is pretentious and the atmosphere typically Milanese. Here people from all walks of life prop up the bar and drink pints often alongside a rowdy pub crowd – it’s the real McCoy. The first thing you’ll notice is how small it is, but there’s plenty of standing space with a few tables surrounded by picture-covered walls creating an authentic Irish atmosphere. Pogue’s is one of the few sport oriented pubs in Milan, showing live sport 7 days a week on 2 large TV screens, usually with English commentary. This is complemented by a large selection of beers ranging from Guinness to McEwans. On Sundays their equivalent of a full English breakfast is a brunch of sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, baked beans, mashed Potato and Prague roasted ham, particularly comforting for those who may feel home-sick.

A little further north, near the Duomo you may also want to consider The Football English Pub which offers you a warm welcoming atmosphere to enjoy an evening of sports entertainment with friends or family Sky sporting events: football, rugby and much more are shown while enjoying a choice of over 35 whiskeys or international beers. They transmit any football match scheduled during the day (for important events a reservation is recommended). Snacks are available anytime based on English breakfast or American style dessert, hamburgers, hotdogs or a variety Italian sandwiches.
