We were determined to see the newly opened Ritz in Paris and have a drink in the Hemingway bar. True to their word the Ritz was given a wonderful make-over but still maintained the elegance and beauty of it’s history. Alas, we were there not to stay overnight but to soak in all the chic and drink a few cocktails. It was fashion week and the small bar was filled to capacity with fashionista after fashionista, many international elegant singles and couples and a few old regulars who greeted the bartender like familia. I felt like someone gave me the secret code to a private club for the night. The service was elegant, familiar, perfect. The cocktails were strong, expensive, and arrived with a fresh flower attached. I was in love. My husband was amused that I was so easy … I didn’t have the heart to explain. Everyone should have such a moment. Thank you Roman,The Hemingway Bar, and The Ritz Paris. I look forward to our next date.
