Wonderful place to stop in for a famous cocktail and a hot dog. We stopped in during the late afternoon which seems to be their quiet time. Since I'm a cocktail bartender, we made immediate friends with the staff. Our French was as bad as their English. I had a French 75 (a little different with absinthe!). Great memories!

We stopped in to order my favorite drink, The French 75, as it was created there. It's worth stopping in for that and the other historic cocktails. The atmosphere wasn't all that impressive, although we did stop in during the day. There were quite a bit of flies all over the bar but the drinks were good.

Love this place, its becoming tradition to pop in for a cocktail or two after getting off the Roissy bus around the corner. Its usually very quiet at lunch time though. Love the interior which was dismantled piece by piece in New York nearly 100 years ago and reassembled. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and the... More

We enjoyed the historical place and the cocktail even though nothing else was proposed to us and a barman quite stuck up.

After reading the good reviews my husband and I took a trip to Harry's bar in the evening, it was nice. No music though. We went on somewhere with more atmosphere.

I went to try the original Bloody Mary since I love them. Just know that this is a very basic bloody mary and not fancy with celery, spices, and bacon like you may have in the US. They have jazz music at night which was fun. I don't think they had any food though.

Let's talk about the hot dogs. I stopped in after dinner to have a drink with a friend, so no hot dog for me. But it was surprising. But it makes sense. You come in for a stiff drink and to keep your wits you down a few dogs. I get it. The decor inside was a mass of pennants... More

I've had a few Bloody Mary's and this was one of the best. We came here after a long day of walking and enjoying the sights of Paris on a very cold day. Two of these certainly warmed us up!

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

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.
