Iin SCHUMANN’S BAR TALKS, the legendary Charles Schumann goes on a perambulation through some of the most interesting bars in the world, including the Dead Rabbit in New York, the Hemingway Bar in Paris, El Floridita in Havana and the High Five bar in Tokyo. He explores the secrets of bar culture, meets bar proprietors, the hearts and souls of bars and their chroniclers. During these conversations we begin to realize that each bar is its own small universe which is brought to life every single day in a different way. The clientele changes with the time of day and day of the week, but the permanent staff make the place. SCHUMANN’S BAR TALKS is not only a voyage of discovery to the most beautiful bars in the world, but also to the people who bring them to life.
