December 4, 1953. Enrico Mariotti and Raffaello Sabatini create Harry’s Bar in Via del Parione in Florence.
Their friend Giuseppe Cipriani, patron of the already famous Harry’s Bar in Venice, gave them some suggestions: the Cuisine – the gratin noodles, the carpaccio, the shrimp curry, the tartare, the flambéed crepes at Gran Marnier, the American Bar – the Bellini, the Martini, the Negroni.

1956. Tersilio Vadorini, known as “Lio” is called by Mariotti: he will be the legendary barman of the years of the dolce vita.

February 1963. Harry’s Bar finds its current location in Lungarno Vespucci. The stools, original of the time, still speak of some famous characters: the label of Margot Heminguey’s favorite champagne, the photo of Liz Taylor in front of her cocktail, just to name a few. In Los Angeles the venue is replicated exactly with every detail of its furnishings.

1972. Sergio and Roberto, sons of Enrico Mariotti, sell Harry’s Bar to the current owners; tradition and style remain unchanged.

Year 2016. Harry’s Bar is counted among the historic places in Italy.
