Birdland (they also have a Facebook page) is located on via Vettabbia, in a roomy two-room basement. The location is not far from some major sightseeing spots (Darsena, San Lorenzo alle Colonne). You can get there by means of tram 15 (departing from via Dogana, next to the Duomo, the stop is Corso Italia-via Santa Sofia) and a short walk along via Molino delle Armi, then turn left into via Vettabbia. An alternative route is through bus 94 (departing from Cadorna station, the stop is Piazza Vetra). And, since Milano is a very compact city, you may also want to walk there from the Duomo or from the Missori subway stop.
