You Have to Visit at Least Once!

A charming bar with great ambience and lots of history. Expensive? You bet, but worth it for at least one. Live a little!

Think that's all I need to say really. Great bar and atmosphere but costly for two drinks. Friendly staff.

Great ambiance as you walk into the "Oldest Cocktail Bar in Europe", but it's quickly tempered by the very aloof bartender. The $15 bloody mary we were begrudgingly served was pretty mediocre. The place had a really great old world feel, but the prices, drink quality, and service caused us to quickly close out and be on our way.

So, we stumble across Harry's New York Bar while wandering back to our hotel. Since my wife's grandfather is a New Yorker named Harry, we have to stop. I want to start by setting some expectations here. It's a New York themed bar in Paris. And it looks like an old NYC bar, with dark wood and lots of pennants... More

Made the pilgrimage to Harry's Bar in Paris yesterday and was disappointed to find a basic sports bar type atmosphere, filled with typical American tourists with not so good drinks. Sat at a table in the back, in a quite stuffy room and ordered the sidecar. Received a drink that was mostly tart, with sour lemon and barely any cognac.... More

We stopped in for a few drinks and to listen to the piano jazz that was playing. This bar has heavy history and is definitely worth a stop. Tons of great memorabilia in an intimate setting. Check it out you will like it.

Great Bloody Mary. But nothing too special. Too much "Americana" for my taste. Your in Paris, probably go somewhere Parisian.

This can be a fun place to stop for a drink or a waste of time. It depends on who is tending bar. The younger bar tenders are friendly and helpful. Some of the "older" bar tenders might ignore you and bus tables rather than serve you a drink. If you get ignored trying to be served, just eat the... More

We stopped in for lunch. Harry's is a bar, not a restaurant. That said...at lunch they have a few items to eat. The club sandwich was magnificent! Comes with a drink for 19 euros. My husband and I split the sandwich and it was perfect...Harry's is relaxed at lunch time. Not many people when we were there.

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.
