A well-known bar in Santa Cruz, Louie's is the ideal spot for a delicious menu. The excellent quality, set in a classy atmosphere, will have you visiting again and again.
If you're planning ahead, most people can agree that later in the week (Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays) is the best time to visit. According to most guests, business casual attire is recommended. Having said that, if you're in the mood for tunes, it's even a good place to catch a DJ.
For those who are interested, the robust menu features items that are gluten-free, low-fat, vegan, and vegetarian. Plus, it's been tabbed as a nice option for both large groups and families with children. In addition to its convenient take-out offerings, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town. Or, if you're looking for the perfect spot to unwind after work, it's got a phenomenal happy hour and a pretty stout selection behind the bar.
A highly-regarded option for both lunch and dinner in Downtown Santa Cruz, Louie's Cajun Kitchen and Bourbon Bar is definitely a good call. The restaurant is easily reachable by public transit, and visitors who drive have access to a garage and private lot nearby (or can park on the street). Should you prefer to pedal over there, bicycle parking's also provided.
