Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Reservations
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
Description: If Domenico Dolce and Donatella Versace had a lovechild who grew up to be a leopard-skin-loving interior designer, this is the place they would have dreamed of decorating. Le Banque is an infamous dining-room-come-discoth��que located on the Via Bassano Porrone in Milan, and the Italianate interior is all plush red velvet seating, pink marble staircases, colourful LCD-lit chandeliers, dancing disco balls and vibrant VIP bling. Set in a grand former bank building, this restaurant attracts red-carpet totty, soap stars and feisty fashionistas and the chichi crowd is dressed to impress. The kitchen at Le Banque is renowned for their innovative cuisine, and wine list is eclectic and suitably expensive.

I went here on a clubnight once and I decided that I'll never come back. Firstly I heard the same songs over and over again (commercial music).. as if the dj had a playlist on repeat with 10 songs in it. Secondly the people of the cloakroom actually stole my jacket and that of a friend we put somewhere else because we were out of money and they wouldn't give them back unless we paid. Without money and with broke friends, and without the possibility of going out to a bank and returning it's a statement that it was a very annoying situation.

I was here the night before write this review on Trip Advisor with My friends because I was thinking that it will be nice to meet there and have fun before I travel again.. the entrance OK it was fast 15€ for boys and 1€ for the ladys..the thing that I can not understand why for the wardrobe for each piece I have to pay 3€ a sweater + a jacket = 6€.. ok the entrance ticket is included also a free drink after you drink it to take another it costs 10€ if you take a Long Island will be 3€ more.. the place is Nice but the organization is very very bad !! they let enter everybody to the disco the only thing that you have to do is to pay the ticket and this is not good, because in the disco enter minors and young people that after are drunken and they do not respect nobody, unfortunately the situation the is unwatchable !!!!! and the security is rude and not organized at all (they don't know what to do), same the Dj I've never heard such a bad music in my life, he don't mix disco commercial music like normal club, he jump from techno to 80 to commercial to twist to techno without let even the track finish !!! hahaha I been in alot of clubs in Europe lin France, Swiss, Germany, Greece ecc and This at all is Not a Classis Milano Style Club..... for all the people who think to spend holidays in Milan, BEWARE OF THIS PLACE !!! go to Corso Como or have a nice apertive in Navigli !!

Beautiful building, disappointing food, perhaps it would be more suitable for the younger persons in there 20s to stop of for a drink before going on to dinner. Too noisy and impersonal for my taste.......

We went for an Italian Aperitivo at Le Banque and we were left really disappointed.
It's such a shame because the building is really beautiful (an old bank) and the internal Art Deco decor quite unusual (although a bit naff when it comes to sone of the details).
The cocktails were nothing special and the food quite poor. As everything is dark & red inside (including lighting, table cloths, napkins, etc), you can hardly see what you are picking up to eat from the buffet. There was no explanation about what food on offer either, so if you are a vegetarian or if you have an intollerace to any ingredient, you are stuck.
Very cold an inattentive service too.
In short: lovely building, great location, but the rest is a bit of a disaster, frankly.
