After weeks of waiting, Bar Louie will finally open up to the public tonight at 8 p.m.

Ron Barile, General Manager of Bar Louie’s new location on Alafaya and University is looking forward to the opening.

“We expect a big draw of students and professionals,” he said during a recent interview.


Serving a variety of all American food, including burgers, flatbreads and sandwiches, Bar Louie is catering to the variety of characters that make up the college town.


To celebrate their grand opening, Bar Louie will be hosting a 4-day blowout bash from Sept. 18 – 21. Every guest will receive their first Appetizer or Flatbread FREE just for stopping by at any point during the four-day span.

Customers can expect a more grown-up feel from this bar, because after 10 p.m., the bar only caters to the 21 and over crowd.

Their new location will be open seven days a week from 11 in the morning until 2 a.m. with happy hour Monday through Friday from 4-7 p.m.

“We’re going big with our opening celebration,” says Barile. “Our guests are going to be blown away when they see what we have to offer.”
