Renewed Ritz Hotel and the Hemingway Bar

Information would be helpful from those of you who have visited the Hemingway Bar since it has re-opened. What did you order and what was the cost? I am trying to find out how much a glass of champagne costs. Also, how are the renovations? Thank you.

Did you read the recent reviews on TA?

Thank you Paris 1racegirl.

I have read the reviews ... somewhat helpful ... still trying to find the cost of drinks in the renewed Ritz and particularly the Hemingway Bar. A drink menu would be helpful ... if such a thing exists online.

We went a few years ago before the renovation and a drink was 45 euro at that time. I'm sure prices have risen since then.

Well, one of the review does say:

"Two drinks (accoutrements of olives, chips, almonds included) will set you back the equivalent of a lovely dinner elsewhere - so enjoy your visit."

So, sounds a little pricey.

It always was expensive

I only used the bar a couple of times when staying at the (unrestored) hotel

French TA reviews all seem to be saying it has not changed much, same staff, special atmosphere and decor amended delicately to preserve what was and keep it nice.

All of which makes good sense

A renovation not a Revolution!

If you can't make it there you can read about the hotel...

"Set against the backdrop of the Nazi occupation of World War II, The Hôtel on Place Vendôme is the captivating history of Paris’s world-famous Hôtel Ritz—a breathtaking tale of glamour, opulence, and celebrity; dangerous liaisons, espionage, and resistance—from Tilar J. Mazzeo"

Thank you all for your helpful input per my questions. We will visit and have a drink!

Let me note two more things I have learned as I investigated the costs of drinks in the bar. On google images of the bar, there are a series of bar menus with prices so that gives a bit of an idea of drinks and costs, even if outdated. Also authors can have mail sent to them in care of: name, Bar Hemingway, Ritz Paris, 15, Place Vendome, 75001, Paris, France and mail used to be saved in a special location in the bar for pick-up. I am sending myself two letters from different places in the US and will see if this is still a practice in the Hemingway Bar.
