Ernest Hemingway’s favorite bars for sipping a drink
Several bars from different cities around the world saw the talented Hemingway put his best ideas on paper. These are Ernest Hemingway’s favorite bars.
The Ritz Paris
The bar at the Ritz Hotel has an intrinsic relationship with the author, as here he developed much of his book The Sun Also Rises (1926).
Sloppy Joe’s Florida
In Key West, the author wrote about a third of his works. There, his local bar was Sloppy Joe’s, a bar he knew well to the owner who owned a speakeasy before, and who during the ban period supplied Hemingway with scotch.
Hotel Lutetia Paris
In this hotel, Hemingway contributed to the edition of James Joyce’s Ulysses (1922), where the latter wrote much of the work.
Bar Inglés Lima
A place where Hemingway enjoyed the famous Pisco Sour served at the bar. At the time, they served about 60 a day. It is not known how many would go to Hemingway!
Harry’s Bar Venecia
This bar appears in his short story Over The River and Into the Trees (1950). Also, he lived in this place and had a table exclusively for him.
La Floridita La Habana
The daiquiri named after Hemingway belongs to this bar. The Double Pope was born here when he asked for a change in his recipe, with less sugar and more rum.
La Bodeguita del Medio La Habana
At La Bodeguita del Medio, Hemingway used to enjoy the mojito. In the bar there is a plaque that quotes Hemingway “Mi mojito en la Bodeguita del Medio y mi daiquirí en la Floridita” (My mojito in the Bodeguita del Medio and my daiquiri in the Floridita).
No conduzca bajo los efectos del alcohol. Consuma con moderación.
