About the book
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Harry’s Bar in Paris, originally Harry’s New York Bar, here is the history of one of the world’s best-known watering holes. Illustrated throughout with photographs, caricatures, newspaper and magazine clippings, business and calling cards, ads, and much more, the book begins with American ex-jockey Tod Sloan, who founded the bar in 1911 and hired an inventive Scottish bartender, Harry MacElhone, who eventually became the bar’s owner. Anecdotes abound from the many celebrities, writers, athletes, artists, and more who frequented Harry’s Bar over the years—among them Ernest Hemingway and Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marlene Dietrich and Leslie Caron, Jack Dempsey and Marcel Cerdan, and many more. A “home away from home” for traveling Americans and ex-pats alike, Harry’s Bar is a hugely popular destination. With 15 recipes for cocktails created at the bar, this book is the perfect souvenir for anyone who’s ever enjoyed a drink at 5, Rue Daunou.

Praise for Harry's Bar:

"The story of Harry's—which is still going strong—is richly chronicled in Isabelle MacElhone's new book, Harry's Bar, which draws upon her family's photos and anecdotes to pay tribute to this most hallowed of watering holes.” —Hemispheres magazine
