Just Cavalli is located in Parco Sempione, at the foot of the Torre Branca, a tower designed by Giò Ponti as one of the attractions at the Triennale architecture show in the 1930s. At that time, the tower was highly innovative. Today it is considered a true work of art.
Just Cavalli is fully justified in standing alongside the Tower. It was created by multi-faceted fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, and it has recently been given a new look in terms of its interior design, with consultancy from architect Daniele Beretta. The restaurant has a semicircular structure in steel, with walls and ceiling in plate glass, and floors in teak. Inside, colours are principally black, with the animalier-motif cushions that have become a hallmark of the Cavalli style.
Furnishings and mise en place are distinctive and highly sophisticated. The restaurant has a high-tech audio and lighting system, with fibre-optic mini-spotlights. There are lounge and chill-out areas under the canopy outside. In evening hours, the ambience acquires a mellow fascination with its sofas, cushions, torches, candles and chandeliers.
The new features introduced by Daniele include bronzed mirrors in attractive surrounds constructed in gloss-enamelled timber.
The restaurant is popular with elite and celebrity visitors, who frequent the venue for aperitifs, dinner, and after-dinner drinks and dancing. In summer, the venue can host up to 1,200 people by means of the outdoor area covered by tension-structure canopies, with two outdoor dancefloors, three bars and three privé areas. The restaurant itself is open all year round, for 180 people in winter, and 250 people in summer. It is popular for private events and buffet functions, for which menus can be personalized. It is managed in cooperation with Discoteca Hollywood which is an entertainment icon in Milan for over 20 years.
