Bar Louie (the gastropubs) !!

This week, it’s been a whirlwind of activities for yours truly with a few days in Seattle, starting with Little Bill’s party a few days ago, but in the meantime….

Have you seen this TV commercial?

Bar Louie is the shared name of a bunch of gastro pubs scattered across the USA.

Here’s an official description from their webpage:

A truly unique social gathering place, Bar Louie is a neighborhood bar and eatery with handcrafted cocktails, a featured selection of local and regional beers with over 20 taps, unique wines and craveable food in an inviting, urban atmosphere. Since 1990, our loyal guests have come to Bar Louie to eat, drink and be happy with old friends while making new ones.

With nearly 140 locations across the country, Bar Louie combines the consistency of a national brand with local appeal. No two Bar Louie restaurants are alike, but each has a modern, relaxed vibe that expresses the brand’s identity. We’ve taken the bar experience to new heights, attracting an affluent 25-44 year-old crowd that enjoys premium cocktails, local brews, great food and hanging with friends.

“Each individual Bar Louie contains its own set of diverse characteristics, yet we offer operational systems and a roadmap to set up franchisees for success,” said Bar Louie Development. “Our franchisees experience the best of both worlds – they benefit from proven operating systems and home office support, but also have the flexibility to cater to the local neighborhood flavor.”

Don’t take our word for it? Just hear what our franchisees have to say:

“Bar Louie is the one of the most exciting concepts in my portfolio. Their support center is very open-minded and truly embodies a culture of freedom within a framework. It’s a fun franchise that takes pride in the food and drinks they serve, translating into a very lucrative investment on our part.” – Murad Fazal, owner and operator of Bar Louie, Subway and Dunkin Donuts.

Catchy tune, eh? It sounds like a brand new recording* by the Kingsmen!

Here’s a current map for the current locations in the USA. So far, there’s only three locations on the West Coast, and they’re all in Southern California.


* Yes – a NEW Kingsmen recording for 21st century.
Please take note.

Big thanks to big sister Ann Casey for letting me about this one, as these gastropubs are not yet active in my neighborhoods…
