The Hemingway Bar at the Ritz Hotel was once the meeting place for F. Scott Fitzgerald (who had his favorite seat), Ernest Hemingway and Gary Cooper who are said to have stayed and talked here for hours until deep into the night.

Cole Porter would spend up to 9 hours a day in the Hemingway Bar: he’s said to have composed ‘Begin the Beguine’ here.

The legend has long since been written – but here, it comes back to life every night. Head Barman Colin Peter Field’s incredible creations are a reference for cocktail lovers the world over. And while guests flock to this warm, intimate alcove to see what he’s shaking up, they also return, again and again, for the heady, arty spirit that still lingers in this magical place.
