Where it all began: the Harry’s Bar and the Bellini

My destiny as a barman was decided one day by the owner of the Hotel Europa, where I was working as a waiter. “Cipriani” – he said – “You’ve got to become a barman because you adopt just the right tone with the clients. They like you and you’re good with languages.”  That’s how I became a barman at the Hotel Europa. ” says mr Cipriani founder of world famous Harry’s bar.

Ever since the first opening day, the bar has attracted the international and refined clientele that habitually come to Venice on holiday. One day in 1935 the waiters served lunch simultaneously to King Alfonso XIII of Spain, Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, King Paul of Greece and King Peter of Yugoslavia. It was just by chance, of course. Some festival brought them to Venice…. Ernest Hemingway, among others, had his own  table reserved in a corner of the bar all during his Venice stay 1945-50.

This is not only a bar but history come alive, the Italian tradition, elegancy and warmth in a truly extraordinary simple location.
