I don’t understand the negative reviews as a result of seeing the prices or for having to wait a long time. If you do a bit of research i.e. read the reviews, you know it won’t be a place for cheap drinks or that you...More

We headed for the Hemingway bar because I am a passionate Hemingway fan. Here's what I wish I had known: it's absolutely tiny, and you can't make a reservation. On arrival at the Ritz, the Ritz concierge will direct you to the bar, but will...More

Do not not not miss the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz. Also, please dress appropriately, dress nicely! And also know it is a small bar, smaller than what you might think. But if stalwart and loyal for decades, writer and head bartender, Colin Peter Field,...More

No reservations, last time I went was a Sunday in February and it was busy but a few seats available so no queues. Best thing is to choose your day and time to not be on peak
