I mean we had to wait for them to make 4 cocktails for 30 minutes. Atmosphere is very 'british pub' Nothing special.

We saw Harry’s in our Lonely Planet guide; and we really wanted to try a Bloody Mary having never had one before. Bloody Mary’s are not for me! Too spicy. But the service was terrible. You’re supposed to sit down and order from a table,...More

A lot has already been written about the fame and pedigree of Harry’s. Beyond that, it is a very well-appointed bar with an impressive and evolving cocktail menu. Yes, it’s expensive, and whilst I love the idea of getting drunk in the company of the...More

Had to have a drink there. A small local beer and gin and tonic 35 euros! One doesn't mind paying that if the place had any elegance. This is no Fourseasons George 1V.It was rather unkept. Some history on the walls but not enough to...More

We have been to Paris many times and have stopped at Harry’s with each visit. We’ve never been disappointed! The bar has been in business since the early 1900’s and the décor reflects its age which is the charm of the place! Only the bar...More

After all the hype we expected more - I do realize it might have had something to do with our timing (we were there at 2pm on a weekday), but the place was completely dead. Not even some background music, only a couple of other...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
