I love experiencing this bar. I have never been there during the week so have never tried the food. But I enjoy the idea that this restaurant, once a bar in NY, was dismantled and put together in Paris - since 1911!! They claim to...More

This is a wonderful oasis in Paris! It is an American bar close to the Opera. It is the oldest cocktail bar in Europe which gives you an idea how great it is. I have been here many times and it is the best.

Think that's all I need to say really. Great bar and atmosphere but costly for two drinks. Friendly staff.

So, we stumble across Harry's New York Bar while wandering back to our hotel. Since my wife's grandfather is a New Yorker named Harry, we have to stop. I want to start by setting some expectations here. It's a New York themed bar in Paris....More

Made the pilgrimage to Harry's Bar in Paris yesterday and was disappointed to find a basic sports bar type atmosphere, filled with typical American tourists with not so good drinks. Sat at a table in the back, in a quite stuffy room and ordered the...More

We stopped in for a few drinks and to listen to the piano jazz that was playing. This bar has heavy history and is definitely worth a stop. Tons of great memorabilia in an intimate setting. Check it out you will like it.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
