This moody, leather-accented bar is famous for being an old haunt of so many Paris creatives—in addition to Hemingway himself, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Cole Porter, and Gary Cooper were all regulars. Legend has it that Marcel Proust ordered a cold beer from here on his deathbed. Today, the watering hole maintains its reputation with a world-class bar program by Colin Peter Fields, who’s a celebrity in his own right at this point. You’re in great hands with Fields no matter your order, but do keep in mind that they all err on the stiff side (just as Hemingway would have wanted it).
