History Of The Hotel Cipriani
On May 26, 1958 Giuseppe Cipriani, opened the Hotel Cipriani on the island of Giudecca.
Giuseppe founded Harry’s Bar in St Marks Square in Venice in 1931. Harry’s Bar was founded after Cipriani was working as a bar tender at the Hotel Europa in Venice and loaned a customer Harry Pickering 10,000 lire (about US$5,000) in 1929 at the beginning of the Crash of 1929. Pickering paid him back 50,000 lire which Cipriani used to start the bar. Harry’s Bar became a popular spot for celebrities like Ernest Hemingway and Humphrey Bogart. The Bellini cocktail and the food dish Carpaccio were reputed to have originated there. The success of Harry’s bar allowed the Cipriani family to expand into other ventures. Today, Giuseppe’s son Arrigo (born 1932) is the majority owner of the multi-national firm Cipriani S.A. Arrigo is Italian for Harry.

In 1976, Orient-Express Hotels was founded with the purchase of Hotel Cipriani from the Cipriani family. In conjunction with the world famous Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train, the Cipriani Hotel would offer the highest levels of luxury and established itself as a one of the very best (and most expensive) hotels in the world, frequented by celebrities and the rich alike. In 2014, the Hotel Cipriani was renamed the Belmond Hotel Cipriani as part of the new rebranding of Orient-Express Hotels as Belmond Ltd.

Most recently, hollywood actor George Clooney hired the hotel in September 2014 on the weekend of his wedding with British lawyer Amal Alamuddin.
