Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 — July 2, 1961) was a novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. He was part of the 1920s expatriate community in Paris, and one of the veterans of World War I later known as "the Lost Generation". He received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 for The Old Man and the Sea, and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
Hemingway's distinctive writing style is characterized by economy and understatement, and had a significant influence on the development of twentieth-century fiction writing. His protagonists are typically stoical men who exhibit an ideal described as "grace under pressure". Many of his works are now considered classics of American literature.
Bar Hemingway is located at Ritz Paris, 15, Place Vendrôme, Paris 75001 and open 5pm to 2am. Semi-formal dress is required.

Colin Field & the Hemingway Bar
Djordje Varda & l'Atelier Floral du Ritz
After visiting Harry’s Bar in ROMA in Paris, our next stop was the world-famous Bar Hemingway. Located at the Ritz Hotel, Bar Hemingway is probably the most well-known, and almost certainly the most expensive bar in the world.
The bar is run by Colin Field, twice voted “The Best Bartender in the World” by Forbes magazine. Colin was behind the bar when we arrived but we opted to sit on a sofa in the small side room rather than at the bar so we didn’t actually meet him. Our order instead were placed through the impeccable waitstaff.
Mr. & Mrs James Bay,
