The Beginning

In 1931 a long-sought dream became reality. Giuseppe Cipriani opened the doors to Harry's Bar. In a discreet stone building perched along a canal just off Piazza San Marco in Venice, he created a timeless and impeccably appointed establishment. His concept was to serve others as you would want to be served yourself. His vision of simple luxury came to touch the souls of people all over the world.

 The secret isn't about what can be seen or touched, but what can be felt and sensed. It is intangible but palpable. It can't be patented, but even after eighty-two years it hasn't been duplicated by others.

Four generations have grown a single restaurant, into a world renowned hospitality brand still recognized for its distinguished venues and service all over the world.
