The seventh edition of Jazz Fest, organized by Hemingway Fan Club, happens on July 21 st through the 22 nd , on the occasion of the famed American author Ernest Hemingway’s birthday. Joining the celebration will be popular musical guests from the likes of Barcelona Gipsy balKan Orchestra, Rumba de Bodas and Ghiaccioli e Branzini among many other eclectic international names. Much like the other, countless events that Hemingway organizes in Tirana and elsewhere, this one too will create that famous intimate yet vibrant atmosphere the bar is so well known for. For all those interested in participating, you cannot forget about the iconic Hemingway dress code, the one that makes the rounds on social media each and every year during this time. This year requires outfits in white with colorful flourishes on the first evening and, on the second, afro-Cuban colors must dominate the widely-loved Hemingway patio. This may be that crazy “dancing in the street” night you have been waiting for!
Tickets may be purchased at Hemingway Bar, starting this weekend, or click here to reserve your spot.

The bar is chock full of them, local and international influences, which means that everyone, local or wanderer, will find something of their own here. Of course, a bar bearing the name of the rum-loving author could not lack a rich variety of the delicious spirit. Here, you will find the best brands, the taste of which will transport you to another time and latitude. In addition, intimate jazz concerts or shows of classic films projected on the walls of the surrounding buildings are a few more reasons to visit this singular spot.
