Bar Vendome greats you as you enter the Ritz. Sit inside or in the atrium. Expansive menu and wine list. Beautiful environment. Quiet place to dine. Food and service were extraordinary.

As Hemingway said "the only reason not to stay at the Ritz is if you can't afford it". Fear not if money can't get you into the great man's bar - it doesn't take reservations (even from residents) and was bulging on the 2 evenings we tried to get in. The Bar Vendome does and is a delightful alternative. It... More

We went to the Bar Vendone by pure curiosity cause we were originally sicking for the Hemingway one as it is an historical institution, but unfortunately it was closed at the time of our visite... which made us discover a very elegant place with a very warm ambiance, with nice wooden walls. We had an early "apéritif", some eastern French... More

We visited on Friday evening for my mums birthday. We had pre selected a table which gave us a wonderful view of the entire restaurant. The service was absolutely brilliant - seamless - the wine (a Provence rosè and champagne - Baron De Rothschild) and the food was incredible - starting with Tuna Tartare and followed by Salmon - and...

If you have some time in the morning to escape from Paris city life and in need for a stylish quiet corner, the salon is the right spot for you... Ask for a fresh croissant, hot milk and a steaming black pot of coffee, enjoy reading "le monde" and your batteries are up and rumming again for "la vie en... More

seat at the bar and enjoy the talent of Frederic the barman. ask him to improvise and you will have one of the best cocktails of your life (the spicy one was awesome). 30euros per cocktails... of course you are at Ritz... but it worths. enjoy your romantic night in one of the best hotel of the world.

My wife and I are world travelers and we love Paris. A hot tip for people watching is the bar at the Ritz. Yes the drinks are over priced so sip slowly and take in the "human stew" in front of you. You can literally write a movie script based on the characters you'll see.

What can you say? Are you surprised we have it 5 stars? Just simply and truly stunning. Arrived for a glass of wine at Bar Ritz and then Champagne by Rothschild and Afternoon Tea in Bar Vendôme. Service, setting and atmosphere just impeccable. We will be back.
