HARRY'S BAR AT THE MAGNOLIA HOTEL

The Denver Post said it best of Harry's: "If the late, great filmmaker Saul Bass designed cocktail lounges instead of film-title sequences, he might have come up with something like Harry's. Harry's is a mod-retro fantasy with colors that would make the Pink Panther purr, concentric circles that would impress Kandinsky and fabrics that would make Huggy Bear jealous."
