We were told that visiting Harry's bar was a must and to try the famous 'Bellini' we could not have been more disappointed. The bar despite its art deco interior - lacked atmosphere, it had less atmosphere than a ferry crossing waiting room. The waiters...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob

It is outrageously priced and, unless you are happy to pay €21 for a Bellini it really is not worth going into. Venice has lots more decent bars and restaurants than it did 15 years ago so simply take your custom elsewhere... More

Don't go there. It cost my husband and I 29 euros for 2 substandard drinks from grumpy waiters. There are many better places to go in Venice so dont waste your time or money.

It does seem to be that the further you are from St Marks Square, the more reasonable prices get. I ate and drank at the northern end of the city last year, near the railway station, and it was cheaper than in my hometown in the UK.
Why all the fuss over Harry's Bar?? (11 Replies)
I have just returned from Venice and we decided to pay Harry's Bar a visit as it is recommended in so many guides. I can't believe what all the fuss is about. I was very unimpressed. We left as they didn't serve any bottled beer. A bellini and a whisky and coke with the service charge would have been around 40 euros. In spite of this the place was packed. If this wasn't included in all the guide books I think most people would take a look in this bar and not bother. To pay that much for...More

It is mentioned in guide books, but I really not think that many people bother, it is very over priced, and lives a past reputation,
