Bar Louie is an eclectic urban bar with warm surroundings, filled with nightlife photography, hand-laid tile artwork and other local architectural touches. Made famous for its handcrafted signature martinis, they also feature an exceptional selection of uniquely presented American food traditionally and regionally inspired, including small plates, burgers and sandwiches. While beer and wine connoisseurs will be impressed with the extensive selection of imports, microbrews and over 20 wines by the glass, cocktail drinkers will revel in signature martinis, mojitos and margaritas made from the highest quality ingredients, fresh fruit and hand squeezed juices.
We arrived for lunch and first shared the Roasted Vegetable Flatbread topped with fresh spinach and artichoke sauce, tomato, mushrooms, basil, balsamic, onions, provolone, and mozzarella. The flatbread was a nice portion and had decent flavor compared to most.
Keith then chose the Backyard BBQ Burger with cheddar, barbecue sauce, bacon, and topped with fried onion strings. It was served with tator tots. His burger was huge and all the loaded toppings were a bit messy, but overall a decent lunch option.
Overall, the service at Bar Louie was very energetic and friendly. The staff seemed really pumped about the new location and grand opening. The space itself is very large (in the former Memphis Barbeque spot) with large garage-style doors that open up to fresh air and a large central bar area with flatscreen tvs all around. The padded leather chairs and stools were stylish and comfortable.
