Hemingway’s Venice Bar

Hemingway’s Venice Bar

Eataly loves Ernest Hemingway, and he loved Italy. To celebrate his birthday, we are introducing Hemingway's Venice Bar, a pop-up cocktail lounge, from July 21 to July 27. 

Hemingway spent a lot of his life traveling, particularly in Italy, France, and Spain. One of his favorite places was the famous Harry’s Bar in Venice. He was such a regular that he had his own table in the corner and used the setting as inspiration for scenes in his novel Across the River and into the Trees.

During his birth month of July, we aim to celebrate Hemingway's  life and contributions to literature and the arts in any way we can. Enter: Hemingway's Venice Bar, which will be open at Baffo, our fine-dining restaurant, July 21-27 from 5-10 p.m. Our experts have curated a unique collection of cocktails that we suspect the author (and infamous imbiber) would have loved.

Grab a seat at Hemingway's Venice Bar, order a cocktail inspired by his travels, and hold court like Papa himself. Browse our menu, then plan your visit!
