This bar is a waste of time and money. On visiting Venice we thought we had to visit Harry's but wished we hadn't bothered. No atmosphere Rude staff and poor service OK Bellini and terrible americano. Very expensive Please don't waste your time there are lots of fantastic places in Venice and this is not one of them!

A drink in world famous Harry's Bar is an experience that people from all over the globe flock to experience--and that is what you are paying for: the experience. We walked in off the street after stumbling upon it (tucked into one of the winding alley's just off San Marco, it is easy to miss and overlook) and were not... More

When telling friends and family that i was going to Venice, nearly all told me to go to Harry's bar for a Bellini! We spent nearly a whole night trying to find it, and failed, no body seemed to have heard about it before? which was odd because it seemed quite famous according to our friends and family! anyway, getting...

As someone who was raised in Venice I went back last month with my boss who was really looking forward to going to Harry's Bar and I have to warn visitors that it is not what Venetians are like. We are warm and friendly people where even tourists are treated as family. Harry's Bar is cold with unsmiling waiters, high... More

During recent trip to Venice, having heard about this bar, we tracked it down, apart from wishing to enjoy a drink/food I also required the needs of a toilet. However on entering dressed in rain wear due to heavy thundery storm and khaki shorts/polo shirt. I was immediately asked to leave the premises, due to a no shorts policy !!... More

We googled cocktail bars in Venice to plan a nice ending to our last afternoon in Venice after our gondola ride..... To pay €20 for a mini cocktail in a bar that has no atmosphere is extraordinary! We should have walked out instead! Interior looks like a school canteen and there is no music or ambience. Probably the worst cocktail... More

We read some reviews here on TA that kind of prepared us for this wonderful little place in Venice! Just wanted to experience a little bit of history and we sure did. Not to terribly hard to find and in the heat of an early July afternoon, my boyfriend in shorts and I in a summer dress entered only to... More

Really not worth it, wish we'd checked reviews on here before going. No atmosphere, overpriced drinks, service ok but nothing special. Once inside, could be anywhere. Our biggest regret from the time we spent in Venice.

We went to Harry's knowing the drinks would be the most expensive we would have on our trip. At 16.50 each they certainly fitted that bill and that excluded the compulsory service charge! Similar to Raffles Singapore Slings you know you're going to pay more. This you wouldn't mind of the drinks were actually nice, instead they come out in... More
