TO SERVE IS FIRST TO LOVE
It all started in 1931 when a long-sought dream became reality and Giuseppe Cipriani opened the doors of 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.
Through the decades, the Cipriani experience is renewed by successive generations of artists and composers, actors and socialites, and great human beings who define each age.
