Harry’s style

Harry’s style

Since 1953, for sixty years Harry’s has seen all kinds of humanity pass through, from ordinary people to well-known public figures; the same smile for everyone, that “arrivederci a presto” that distinguishes it and makes it so desirable, and why not, loved even, compared to other flash-in-the-pan venues.

Harry’s has its own way of being that can be defined simply as Harry’s style: unique and inimitable.

Milestones

December 4, 1953. Enrico Mariotti and Raffaello Sabatini create Harry’s on Via del Parione in Florence. Their friend, Giuseppe Cipriani, owner of the already famous Harry’s Bar in Venice gives them some tips: the Cuisine – the taglierini gratin, the carpaccio, the curried prawns, the tartare, the crepes flambéed with Gran Marnier, the American Bar – the Bellini, the Martini, the Negroni.

The year 1956. Mariotti calls Tersilio Vadorini, known as “Lio”: he was the legendary barman during the “dolce vita” years. February 1963. Harry’s finds its current location on Lungarno Vespucci. The stools, vintage originals, still recall some of the celebrity customers: the label of Margot Hemingway’s favorite champagne, the photo of Liz Taylor with her cocktail, just to name a couple.

In Los Angeles, the venue and its furnishings are precisely copied down to the last detail. 1972. Sergio and Roberto, Enrico Mariotti’s sons, sell Harry’s to the current owners; the tradition and style remain unchanged.

Year 2016. Harry’s is dubbed one of the historic places of Italy.
