Through Diario del Viajero we know a unique list of the 10 most famous literary bars in the world according to the Forbes Traveler publication. The life of a writer has always been linked to a somewhat bohemian and lonely life and this may be one of the reasons why they have associated writers with bars, some writers indicate that there was a kind of communion between the heyday of the writer and the alcoholism line.
As Enric Cardona, author of the post in the Journal of the Traveler, indicates, this list is based on Anglo-Saxon literature, so we do not share Forbes' opinion, however, it is still a curiosity to mention.
We can find the White Horse Tavern of New York, a place frequented by Allen Ginsberg, an alcoholic poet also fond of drugs and Jack Kerouac, a writer whose style was spontaneous prose and was reputed to go drunk to interviews. In second place we find the Algonquin, a place frequented by journalists like Dorothy Parker, in his last years of life, his addiction to alcohol led him to failure. The following is Heinold's First and Last Chance, a place frequented by Jack London, a famous writer who triumphed in his time but who unfortunately died of a morphine overdose.
The Harry's New York Bar in Paris, was the place frequented by writers such as Ernest Hemingway or Sinclair Lewis, in fifth place the Hemingway Bar, precisely its name is due to one of its most favorite customers. Sixth place for Ye Olde Cock Tavern, an old London tavern dating from the time of Charles Dickens.
In seventh place we find the Davy Byrnes, frequented by James Joyce writer and poet with eight written works of relevance. The eighth place is for Eagle and Child Oxford, frequented by one of our favorite authors, J.R.R. Tolkien The Long Bar occupies the ninth place, a place frequented among others by Joseph Conrad, listed as a pre-modernist writer who mixed the romantic and the real.
Finally, we finish the tour of this peculiar list with Floridita Havana Cuba, also frequented by the great Ernest Hemingway.
Anyway, all these places acquired fame for the personalities that frequented them, other places will not be so famous but they far exceed some of this list, of course, some are Spanish, which would you put on the list?
