It’s not vintage, it’s authentic! Since 1911, Harry’s Bar has refused to undergo renovations. Besides the historic mahogany woodwork, the tin ceiling imported from Manhattan and the old-fashioned waiters dressed in white vests, there’s a serious collection of university pennants that makes the house proud. As well as the incredible roster of cocktails invented between these walls, like the spicy Bloody Mary (vodka, lemon and tomato juice, Worcestershire shire, Tabasco, salt and pepper, €14) or the tangy Side Car (cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice). For something more modern, try the Açaï Caipiroska (Absolut Açai vodka, lime and sugar), perfect with a good hot dog (€6.50). And for an alcohol-free drink, there’s a collection of fruit juices for €6.50. Take note: the piano bar downstairs brings this place to life from Monday to Saturday. // A.B.
