The incredible café has just opened in Prada's new art and culture complex, Fondazione Prada, in Milan, and it's every bit as wonderful as the celebrated director's films. The interior is quintessentially '50s - from Formica tabletops in lollipop shades to a row of retro pinball machines and glass jars full of sweets. It's reminiscent of Italian style in the '50s and '60s, as well as, unsurprisingly, the 2013 short film Anderson produced in collaboration with Prada, Castello Cavalcanti.

The photogenic fitout (it's an Instagram addict's dream) looks like it's been made for the movies. Anderson admits:  "While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in."

We can only hope the legendary Mendl's Courtesan au Chocolat (If you've seen The Grand Budapest Hotel, you know what we're talking about) is on the menu.
