KELLY BAR is not the usual Chinese cafè; rather it is a westernized bar that fully reflects the imagined expectations of a young Chinese teenager while walking along via Pellegrino Rossi in Milan.

It’s a dream come true, the starting point to rewrite a new and exciting story.

The menu doesn’t list abstruse and exotic Chinese dishes with bright names, but comforting stuffed sandwiches, sumptuous cocktails, tasty colorful salads and fragrant breakfast items.

The TV screen, surrounded by plants in bloom, broadcasts Italian programs which emphasize the passion for the change.

Ciao ciao Chinatown, void of any distinct interpretation!
