I admit it. I'm a creature of habit. I've been a friend of Louie since we met at his Chicago Lincoln Park location long ago. It was Bar Louie in miniature. Cafe Louie. Same premise: eat, drink, be happy. Holds true for this Tampa location. My sixth visit since October 2011. I visit every trip to Tampa. Our party of... More

We happened to come by this restaurant/bar for a couple of drinks and appetizers towards the end of happy hour. It was very crowded, with nearly all tables/bar stools filled.

Pros: 1- In the heart of International Plaza, next to Blue Martini 🍸 2- Indoors is casual, lots of Tvs to catch on sports 3- Outside is cozy and relaxing. Nice couch, music and fire place for the cold nights (if ever! ) 4- THE BEST CHOCOTINIS in the area, city and state!

Bar Louie is awesome! They have fantastic food, and their tater tots are out of this world. I crave their veggie wrap. It's amazing. A great place to grab lunch. I have never been there at night, but it always looks like a fun time.
