Had a few minutes for a drink before a movie, so I blew a pile of dough on a cocktail here. Their drinks aren't cheap, by my standards, but they are well made, and the scene is... read more

No American should go to Paris and not stop at Harry's. I took my family there on a lazy July afternoon. It was almost empty. The waiters got a kick out of me ordering my 15-year old son's first beer. The hotdogs were perfect. The Purdue pennant nostalgic. I went back often. I miss it. Even now. Years later.

We love going there because of the history. My wife's great uncle Tommy Lyman sang there in the 20's and 30's. He was a famous torch singer. Friends with Maurice chevalier, Charles dugalle, even the duke and duchess of Windsor among many other celebs in Europe, New York, Chicago and Hollywood. My wife and her sisters, like their father always... More

On a last minute two week pressure-cooker work trip to Paris, I was in need of a place for a time out. One Google search later, I had a list of places to try. The reviews for Harry's bar were positive, so I thought I'd give it a crack. And I'm glad I did. As a solo male traveller, it... More

The home of the "Bloody Mary" and a must stop especially if you have been to the Harry's in Venice or Rome. Very old well preserved bar with all the wall hangings to keep you occupied. The Bloody Mary is actually pretty good. Also try the Harry's "hot chocolate" they also serve a light lunch

The wife and I are Bloody Mary enthusiasts. The drink was allegedly invented at Harry's Bar in Paris. The myth is that it was invented for Hemingway to cure him of his hangovers. We decided to give the bar and their take on the drink a shot. The drink itself was excellent. The bar itself is a cult destination for... More

Had a few minutes for a drink before a movie, so I blew a pile of dough on a cocktail here. Their drinks aren't cheap, by my standards, but they are well made, and the scene is acceptably entertaining. Sitting at the bar was an education in proper bartending, worth a few of those €€€ in and of itself.

Dirty rowdy and crowded. Billed as a classy piano bar but far from it. Need to reserve but no way of knowing if it's worth the hassle

A take off on the average New York Bar, full of State pendants and Americans. They were having a straw Presidential Vote. Very friendly staff. This is nosy, casual and ideal stop after the long day to get a drink and a Hot Dog !!

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood 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, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
