Bar Hemingway at the Paris Ritz

The Bar Hemingway is the sort of hotel bar we all wish to relax in with a drink, but for many this can be a rare encounter, yet although this place is exclusive, it is cosy and not at all intimidating like you may expect.

The building itself was originally constructed in the early part of the 18th century as a private dwelling and was converted into a luxury hotel by Cesar Ritz back in 1898 and over the years different rooms and suites have been named after famous people that have stayed at the Ritz in Paris.

Bar Hemingway at the Paris Ritz

The facade of the building was originally designed by the architect Jules Hardouin Mansart, who was also the designer for the extended Chateau de Sain Germain and Chateau de Versailles and to do this day, the hotel still retains the original features and charm that you would expect.

The hotel Ritz has always been a favourite of many of the world's wealthiest people and famous people that include King Edward VII, Elton John, Princess Diana, Greta Garbo and Charlie Chaplin.  Luxurious suites have been named after some of its previous guests such as Coco Chanel who made the Ritz her home for more than thirty years and Ernest Hemingway who had a bar named after him. 

The Bar Hemingway that was named after Ernest Hemingway, as it was his best loved bar, has been restored to its original appearance, with rich wood panelling on the walls and deep leather arm chairs.  Adorning the walls there are original photographs that were taken by the author and they provide a record of places that inspired this famous writer. 

As well as the single malt whiskies that Ernest Hemingway so much appreciated, the bar also serves beers from all over the world that are accompanied by tapas, in memory of his love of Spain.  Above all, though, this has got to be the place to enjoy the famous original cocktails invented by the great Colin Field who was voted the world's best barman in 2001.

The Bar Hemingway at the Ritz has also been ranked as the best bar in the world by Forbes magazine, plus it is situated right in the heart of Paris near place de la Concorde square, and can be located at the back of the Ritz on the Rue Cambon side of the hotel. 

It is a beautiful, yet small room that has the persona and feel of what it would have been like on one of the great liners of the past and from book-signings to conferences, this place is still a vibrant focus of literary life.  Plus a tradition unique to the Ritz is still in effect today, where writers may have their mail addressed to themselves at the hotel.

Paris Bar Key Points

The Hemingway Bar is open every day of the week.

Obviously this is not the type of place to walk in with jean on! It is actually semi-formal dress that is required.

The average cost for a cocktail is anything upwards of ?20 but just the experience is going to be worth it.

The closest Metro stations are the Concorde, Op?ra or the Tuileries

Reservations are not required.
