Harry’s New York Bar

Famous for being a Hemingway haunt, Harry’s is responsible for the invention of the (now) classic cocktails the Bloody Mary, the French 75, and the Sidecar.  Stiff, white coat clad bartenders keep a strict dress code in check so shorts aren’t going to cut it. Pants (sigh) are required if you’d like to make it through the door of this historic bar.

Reviews of interest

Hipsters in Paris (2014) “Everything here is old school. You won’t find artisan snacks or house made unicorn syrups. The bar has made few changes past 1911 and it is a good thing…The open-all-day-every-day boozer is best experienced on quiet afternoons, where grown men in white coats will whip up kicking Manhattans and ice cold Martinis.”

World’s Best Bars (2012) “Cosmopolitan, sophisticated and chic with a like-minded clientele, order a Dry Martini and soak up some old-world style.”
