Went there for a drink after dinner. Bartender made a decent drink. Bathrooms were very dirty, floors greasy, and dining room was filthy. The only good thing was the DJ played de ent music. Will not be returning.

Bar Louie is your typical chain bar food, trying to be more upscale and polished. This location has a good energy, with a buzzing bar. The service was decent and the staff was pleasant. The food was average. I had a salad. My colleague had...More
