Soon You Can Travel The Heming-Way!

Just about everywhere we’ve traveled over the last 10 years we have come across a bar or lounge (some of them not so nice!), where Ernest Hemingway drank. I guess, when you consider the reputation of the man, that’s not very surprising. From Havana to Paris and beyond, you will find signs stating “Hemingway Consumed Beverages” here. What may be surprising is that someone has decided to use that reputation and lifestyle to brand a new chain of hotels.
The newly announced Hemingway Hotels & Resorts is set to develop a group of properties that will embrace the spirit and lifestyle of the intrepid writer. Locations will be linked to Hemingway’s life, which means they will cover a large and diverse territory. (I guess we many have to wait a few years for the Havana location).
Restaurants will be of major importance (after all, this is the author of “A Moveable Feast”) and of course, bars. Each hotel will have “The Best Damn Bar Anywhere,” and will serve Hemingway’s favourite libations. Reportedly, this includes everything from daiquiris and mojitos to martinis and absinthe. Just about anything with alcohol is fair game. Needless to say, they should be very well-stocked bars. N.B. Fist fights will not be part of the entertainment.
And of course there will be outdoor adventures and cultural activities like book readings and Hemingway tours. Each hotel will have a library. Check out their website.
