Harry's Bar Tips (8)

Harry's Bar: World famous & very classy (but not snobby)

To cap off our first evening in Venice, we headed over to the world famous Harry's Bar. We walked in and we felt like a part of the family. An inviting and warm atmosphere, the staff is very friendly, knowlegeable and passionate about what they do...it adds up to a club like feeling that all the best European cafes possess. And to top it off, we mentioned to our waiter that this was a very special trip to Venice...our anniversary...and ended up with Meringata alla crema to go along with our classic Bellini (juice of white peaches and Italian Prosecco wine).

Dress Code It's a classy place, so please don't show up in sneakers or natty jeans. Classy casual would be the minimum requirement.

HARRY'S BAR

Opened in 1931 by Giuseppe Cipriani with financing from Bostonian Harry Pickering, this celebrated watering hole was frequented by Ernest Hemingway, Somerset Maugham, Orson Welles, and Aristotle Onassis, among others. Harry's Bar is famous for its martinis and its Bellinis (fresh peach juice and Prosecco wine).

Harry's Bar: The Cipriani head office

No visit to Venice would be complete without a trip to Harrys Bar. The story goes that the present owners father named it after an American named Harry Pickering who gave him the money to start up in business(I dont know the truth of this). Home of the Bellini cocktail.
Unfortunately, one of these great drinks will cost you about 13 euros(last time we were there).
Harrys Bar closes between the first Sunday in January until the beginning of Carnevale.
On the day of closing, old folk are invited to enjoy a free feast. The sign on the door says 'Closed for reflection'

Dress Code Smart, casual

Harry's Bar: Hemingway's Retreat

Harry's Bar is probably the most famous named bar in the world - the one in Venice especially due to its association with Hemingway and it's a bit of a tourist trap.

This place is ok, but nothing to write home about. Expensive drinks in what could be described as another American bar overseas (so said my friends from Detroit). It would be better to find a local bar where the locals go.

If you do go here you have to try the Bellini (cocktail) which is the signature drink & at approx €14 it's fairly pricy. Don't get upset if a waiter shouts at you - it's nothing personal or so I am assured.

Dress Code Smart Casual at worst - this is a place to be seen so most are dressed up.

Harry's Bar: Definitely HARRY'S BAR

Definitely the legendary HARRY'S BAR - A meeting place for the beautifully hip people. This bar has been in the news for over a decade now....

And when you're here - don't forget to try their signature drink - BELLINI.

If you're hungry, the floor above serves delicious food. Please refer to my "RESTAURANTS" tips for more info.

Dress Code This is Italy. Everyone is fashionably dressed meaning - no tennis shoes, purleeease! There is a reason why tennis shoes are called - tennis shoes. They are meant for the tennis courts.

Harry's Bar is the watering hole for the who's-who and those who are not intimidated by the who's-who. Confused? O.K. - it simply means - When you come to Harry's Bar for your Bellini, DRESS TO KILL. Si?

Harry's Bar: Harry's Bar

Probably the most famous bar in Venice, frequented by the rich and by celebrities throughout it's history - from Ernest Hemmingway to Madonna and Nicole Kidman. (Dunno if Kylie's been, she wasn't there when I was in town!).

Dress Code Casual is OK, but not TOO casual! (No shorts, for instance).
