Harry's New York Bar
This classic cocktail bar, not far from the Opera Garnier, is allegedly the birthplace of concoctions that are now world famous, most notably the Bloody Mary. The bar itself was originally located in New York, but was dismantled and reconstructed in Paris in the early 1900s. Aproned barmen take orders and serve up small but potent cocktails, while American university pennants cover the walls. It attracts a mix of travelers making a pilgrimage for a Sidecar or Blue Lagoon, as well as curious Parisians seeking a break from their Bordeaux and Burgundy.
