My wife & I have frequented Harry's on numerous occasions over the past 10+ years. On our last 2 visits to Paris we have made multiple pit-stops here, since it is on the path from Montmartre to the 7th arrondissement, where we rent an apartment. I always have a couple Bloody Marys, since this is the birth-place of that cocktail;... More

My parents had recently been on a Hemingway kick and wanted to check this place out before dinner. Tried the sidecar, bellini, and sazerac and was delighted by all of the drinks. The atmosphere is casual. While the prices of the drinks are on the high end, the quality (and strength) matches the cost.

Not a Eurpoean bar, as the name implies it has a very old fashioned American vibe. Feels like you have walked into the 1940's. The staff are polite and fast. The prices are not cheap (but it is Paris). The piano ba downstairs is cosy and intimate. Live music every night until 2am.

Made a special pilgrimage to Harry's in the afternoon. Near the opera which was lovely. High prices nice decor. Stop by if you must. We walked out. The bartender was snooty when my fellow traveler asked for wine, with reply "we are a cocktail bar". And yet you they serve beer

If you like cocktails and history you must visit Harry's Bar. We visited on a Thursday evening and the place was packed. The upstairs bar (with the piano) was packed and we were lucky to get the final table downstairs. The bar is not large but it does feel like a proper bar. The cocktail menu as you would expect...

My husband and I stopped in here early one afternoon for a drink. We almost had the place to ourselves, except for a few people at tables in the back. We sat at the bar and had a nice, relaxing experience and some fabulous drinks. The bartender was professional and courteous; he made our drinks, then went about his business.... More

Such a great little bar. Expect 15-18euro cocktails made expertly by very polite and kind french barmen. Good New Yorker beer and amazing vibe! Would recommend to anyone who does mind a 75euro tab after 2hours!

Walked in during a hot afternoon and sat down. My friends were still at the Louvre and so I decided to relax after museum overload and I ordered the Sidecar drink that was invented there. The waiters are super cool, and super fast! They smile and really make you feel at home. Being American is a real advantage at the... More

My son and I stopped by here late-night and ordered the bloody marys, whiskey sours and hotdogs. Terrific stuff and the bar has a great feel to it. Waiters are fast and friendly. What's not to like.

I stopped into Harry's to have an original Bloody Mary. The place was crowded when I got there. It looked like an after-work happy hour crowd. When I showed-up, I looked 100% touristy! The hostess told me I was welcome to stay in the crowded area, but that they also have a lower level with tables and some good music.... More
