The liberation of the bar of the Ritz Hotel in Paris by the writer Ernest Hemingway 70 years ago, as the French capital was freed from its Nazi occupiers, is the stuff of legend. When he discovered the bar in the late 1920s in the company of Francis Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway was broke; this was before he became known for such works as "The Sun Also Rises" and "A Farewell to Arms". Hemingway put the gun in the jeep and came back to the bar, where he is said to have run up a tab for 51 dry Martinis.The hotel, which has been closed for renovations ever since 2012, named a smaller bar after Hemingway in 1994 .
