I have been going to Paris, France every year since 1998 which is the same year I discovered the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz Paris hotel. This bar is the classic bar from the 20's in every aspect. Although you can no longer smoke your cigar in the bar, they have a terrace that accommodates smoke. This bar pours classic... More

I didnt actually go to this place. After two tries we were unable to locate this bar, or the hotel in which it is located, using the trip advisor city guides app.

A few years ago, after many previous trips to Paris, I booked this experience which I cannot believe I did not discover, years before! Basking in the warm ambience of this famous space of The Hemingway Bar, in the gorgeous Ritz Hotel was an absolute joy! Colin Field (the world' stop bartender, rated by Forbes magazine) was great; welcoming, humorous... More

First of all, if you're planning a trip and reading this the Hemingway Bar is CURRENTLY CLOSED but they will be reopening. I wanted to take my husband here and was fortunate enough to wander in the last night of service before closing. The staff had family members in for the evening and were all celebrating the place they love... More

This should be taken off Tripadvisor. Waste of time. Went all the way just to find out it was closed. Should be taken off the app.

It is most unfortunate that the Ritz Hotel has closed this historic landmark designed by Hemingway. We went to see it June of 2012 and were politely told that is was not open to the public.

We love coming here for the delicious drinks and fantastic atmosphere, not to mention the attentive service, excellent bar men and tasty snacks. Too bad we'll have to wait until it opens again in the soon-to-be-reinvented Ritz. So sad to see it go, but glad to hear that they don't plan on changed the bar at all. Now off to... More

I always wanted to go to Bar Hemingway having read most of Hemingway's biographical material and finally went. It lived beyond expectations. Intimate and classy, momentos everywhere, excellent martinis with wonderful "snackings". Love the ambiance. It's small and feels exclusive. Dress appropriately, and keep your voice down to continue the feeling.

Had a couple drinks here with a family friends many years ago (TA didn't provide a date earlier than April, 11). I still remembers the blueberries and blackberries in the water. Very quaint, cozy atmosphere. At the Ritz hotel in Place Vendome.
