Harry’s Bar – Venice, Italy – Somewhere In Time Weekly Travel Photo.
Somewhere In Time is a weekly travel photo from around the world. Enjoy!
Harry’s Bar is probably the most famous bar in Venice. Frequented by many well known actors & artists, the bar is most known for being a constant favorite of Ernest Hemingway. If that weren’t enough, it is also the home of the world famous Bellini drink.
Even though we knew it was overpriced we decided to saunter over there one evening and partake in the Venice ritual of drinking a Bellini in Harry’s Bar. What a mistake.
This photo was taken about 42 seconds after we got kicked out.
As soon as we entered the door, we got turned out. Randy had shorts on and that was the deal killer for Harry’s. They weren’t very nice about it and I quickly glanced at the menu and saw that a single cup of coffee was pushing 10 Euro. Ouch! I can only imagine what the Bellini must have cost.
As soon as we left we remembered that Randy was wearing his technical pants and we actually had the bottoms of his pants in our backpack. We were so bummed we didn’t think of it in the bar because it would’ve been pretty awesome to pull them out and zip them on right then and there in the middle of this stuffy bar. I’m sure it would’ve mortified everyone in there.
I can’t give a full review of Harry’s Bar because I didn’t even get to sit down but I can tell you it didn’t impress me much. Of course it might be because they kicked us out, but it seemed liked a pretty egotistical and expensive place. I’m sure back in the day before it turned snooty and overpriced it was pretty cool hang out spot but now I really can’t imagine anyone like Ernest Hemingway making this their favorite bar anymore. It did not seem like the type of spot that would lure in creative types, especially with the prices.
I would love to know if anyone has been. If you have please let me know about your experiences in the comments below. 🙂
