First things first, this isn't from the famous Harry's Bar in Venice known for inventing the Bellini. It is actually from the Neon Piano Bar on Carnival's Ecstasy cruise ship. It acts as a holding room and a great place for a cocktail while waiting for a table in the main dining room. The tiny bar is decorated with neon interpretations from famous bars all over the world.
We stopped by just about every night for a little champagne to start the night off and it was almost always nearly empty. In the real world, that might be a negative but on a cruise ship, a bar with available seats, servers and views is a wonderful thing.
As far as the real Harry's Bar goes, I'll have to dig into my archives and see if I can find any photos from the world famous establishment. I seem to remember it was stuffed with tourists drinking overpriced Bellinis saying something about Hemingway... or was it Fitzgerald? Either way, we had the obligatory Bellini and quickly settled up and headed deeper into Venice in an attempt to lose ourselves literally and figuratively among the winding alleys.
