Description: In order to write the story of this cafe we should get to meet every person who has gone to it, or most of them. Certainly each one of them would have a bit of story kept in the casket of their memories. Memories of unforgettable moment, but above all of a bit of history which has helped our Country to be born again. It was the Sixties and our bar proudly represented the meeting place of the " By nigth " Rome, of the " Dolce vita " (Sweet life), the place where riotous loves were born, where never revealed agreements were signed, were everything was familiar ... This was Harry's Bar. In the hearts of the ones who patronenized it, it never died, despite the hard times. Harry's Bar Rome was born in 1959, took its name only in 1962 but the cafe existed since 1918. It was the Golden Gate Confectioner's, quoted in many books. At the end of the Twenties it became part of the De Gasperis' family until 1958, the very year it cake to be American Bar Restaurant. Today the cafe shines in its Boisseirie, and in its plasters, more then 35 years old, of late renovated, the same feel you got in those years. He who doesn't know Harry's Bar Rome, has now good reason to go and see it. Legendary Harry's Bar is the unique place that evokes tbc "Dolce Vita' as if it were a clip from the film, creating a vivid flashback to the golden era of the Via Veneto, when Frank Sinatra sang at the piano and all the stars made their appearance in this bar/restaurant full of glamour and style. As in the roaring sixties, you can still sip an aperitif, enjoy the live piano bar every evening and dive into tbc magic of the Via Veneto from the exclusive and fascinating Harry's Bar. The refined cuisine recalls the freshness of Mediterranean flavours based on prime ingredients. Tradition and fantasy inspire the elegant dishes of the menu, accompanied by the most prestigious labels and a high class service.

Yes, you pay twice more than in frequented tourist places in Rome, but you get the best service, atmosphere, and food/drinks. The bar has a beautiful outdoor terrace facing Via Venetto and Porta Pinciana, but the interior is also finely decorated and memorable.

Harry's Bar is the Rome's gathering point for the world's jet-set. Go for it, if you can afford it.

Dress nicely, otherwise you might be ignored or not get a table at all. And don't get distracted by some reviews here, this is not a place for budget travellers.

Harry's bar was highly recommended by some of my colleagues. We ordered a drink and then after waiting for over forty minutes for are server to take are order we just left. One rum and coke and a glass of wine 28 euro's. What a rip off and what crappy service. Save your money and go some where else.

We stayed at the Marriott Grand Flora and wanted a late night drink so we went to Harry's. The atmosphere was very nice and comfortable and they had a nice piano player and singer, really was nice. However the prices for the drinks at the bar are insane, a bottle of Peronni was $11 euro and that was cheap, most mixed drinks were close to $20 euro. It's a shame because we'd of stayed but just not at those prices.

We thought we would drop in here for a nightcap after a long day sight seeing.

The bar itself is nice and the staff were polite and friendly, but boy... How much can you realistically charge for a non alcoholic cocktail? €16! And €42 for three drinks.

We didn't go back!
