‘Bellinissima’: Opened in 1931 by bartender Giuseppe Cipriani, no other bar in Europe has a richer history than Harry’s Bar in Venice. From humble beginnings, its impressive list of famous clientele includes Ernest Hemingway, Noel Coward, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock and Woody Allen, amongst many more. The bar overlooks the Grand Canal, across which the spectacular Ponte di Rialto strides. Harry’s Bar is perhaps best known for having invented the universally popular Bellini, shown here being enjoyed by a stylised gondolier. Conveying the beauty and romance all things Venetian, Avalon’s charming pastiche pays homage to Cassandre’s iconic ‘Dubonnet’ poster.
