Ok, so well, gosh, we had to wait two hours for stupid apple to repair Gloria's phone, so we stopped in here. Domestic drafts are $3.25 during happy hour, a step up from our usual dive bar prices, but what the hey, it's an elegant place. Now, I've been drinking Original Past Blue Ribbon Beer for over fifty years, believe... More

Nice bar. Tons of food options and willing to make it Gluten Free. Lots of tap beer choices. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Service is also very fast. Trio and chips is outstanding.

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. We had good service initially, but, was then told by the server that her shift was ending & she wanted us to pay our bill. We did so willingly, and... More

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 conveniently located on Bay Steet at International Plaza. It serves a typical sports bar menu with food that is hit or miss. TV's all over showing all sporting events but if you're not a Seminole fan you might want to avoid it during FSU football games. As a "designated" Florida State bar, it draws hundreds of screeming...
