Harry's Bar Cipriani


Calle Vallaresso, Venice
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Harry’s Bar might be the most famous bar in Venice. Hidden in plain sight behind a nondescript door near Piazza San Marco, getting a drink here is a truly Venetian experience (even if the service is consistently aloof). Sit at one of the lacquered wooden tables or at the marble-topped bar and order a bellini if you’re visiting in the summer—they invented the drink back in 1948. Otherwise, go for a gin martini that comes served in a small tumbler to assure it’s properly chilled, some beef carpaccio or a grilled ham and cheese sandwich as a snack. You going to have to accept that this cocktail is not going to end up in your Instagram story, though, since they don’t allow photos.
