"The “traditionally inventive” Harry’s New York Bar, located at “Sank Roo Doe Noo” in Paris, has been a destination for distinguished expats and international celebrities since first opening on Thanksgiving Day in 1911. Its name is taken from both its famed original barman — Scotsman Harry MacElhone — and from the physical bar itself, which was relocated to Paris from its first home in pre-prohibition Manhattan.
Over the past century-plus, the legendary establishment has counted various luminaries from the worlds of literature, music, art and politics among its patrons. Ernest Hemingway, Coco Chanel, Bill Tilden and Humphrey Bogart drank there; Ian Fleming incorporated it into From a View to a Kill; George Gershwin wrote “An American in Paris” in Harry’s cozy basement piano bar. And in addition to its celebrated clientele, Harry’s has also had a major influence on the world of cocktails, having invented some of the most classic drinks of all-time: the Bloody Mary, the Sidecar, and the French 75. To this day, the bar’s dining menu consists only of hot dogs.
Especially esteemed regulars — including Rowing Blazers Creative Director and founder Jack Carlson — are inducted into Harry’s very own (and very serious) secret society: The International Bar Flies, or I.B.F. “Harry’s New York Bar is everything we aspire to be at Rowing Blazers,” explains Jack. “Inclusive and unassuming, charmingly ridiculous, but with a hint of old-world glamour and a deep, deep appreciation for history.”
