At number 43 Ripa di Porta Ticinese, you will find a doorway decorated with bottles and shakers.  Inside the doorway, there's a sign on another door that states "STOP!  The smallest bar in the world".  On your left is a small serving hatch in which appears a barman wearing a V For Vendetta mask.  He will either give you the key for the locked door (you need to book ahead), or take your street drinks order.  You will need to follow the two sets of rules above his head however: "4" is for takeaways and states that you can only order one cocktail at a time, you can not ask any questions, you must leave when you receive your cocktail and you must not try to open the closed door.  There is a menu of five cocktails and one beer to take away and drink along the canal.  The rules for "3" refer to what's behind the locked door;  it only works for uncomplicated guests, the bar is your's alone for two hours. If you're lucky enough to be given the key, inside you will find a tiny whisky room so small it only holds four people and your barman.  There's a choice of five excellent bourbon based cocktails and an iPad allowing you to choose your own music.  This really is the smallest bar in the world, yet the biggest of ideas.
Open from Monday to Saturday, from 19:30 until 03:00.
