A truly “traditional” pub in Dublin means one which has retained 19th century features. There are some good ones... The Long Hall, The Stag’s Head, Ryan’s, The Palace.
Outside of Dublin there are pubs that look something like the stereotype but have always looked that way.
I agree the pub trade is starting to cater to what tourists expect, but... Well, they get a lot of tourists. There are plenty of gems serving locally produced beers and spirits if anyone wants recommendations.
As to Starbucks in Milan, and that building... Kind of reminds me of the way Weatherspoons in the UK
bought some really amazing buildings. They have a bar in Edinburgh that is in an old central bank building, something like that, it’s amazing.
Also- Italy is no longer serving the best coffee in the world frankly. There are small shops pretty much everywhere now doing the craft coffee thing better than what is being slung out in Milan I reckon...
I actually think Milan is a bit of a kip these days. Outside the center it is really grotty... More kebab shops than trattorias.
(Yes, Dublin is a kip too, LOL)
