Check out Louie Louie!

If you’re yet to make the trip, it’s high time you ventured down to Walworth Road to try a refreshing new place, Louie Louie. This gorgeous Elephant & Castle spot, which was funded by Kickstarter, is a relaxing café by day which transforms into a buzzing bar and restaurant by night! If you ask us, this is a charming place to go whatever your mood…

This café and restaurant has an amazing backstory as it materialised from a Kickstarter project. The page was launched in August last year asking for support from the local community to help raise £25,000 to open the dining experience. It was a huge success, with 244 backers helping to raise well over the budget in a short space of time. 

After the super successful campaign, Louie Louie launched in December of last year so it’s still the new kid on the block. It was created by the same team that gave us Fowlds Cafe in Camberwell and The Bedroom Bar, Comedy Cafe and NOLA cocktail bar in Shoreditch so you’ll be in good hands.

During the day, Louie Louie offers exquisite coffee, and daily homemade cakes supplied by Stromabakes. Their menu offers homely breakfast and lunch dishes and an all day brunch at weekends! After all, who doesn’t love an all day breakfast? By night, you can try incredible dishes including their Octopus Ceviche or Grilled Cauliflower Steak, all washed down with their cracking selection of beers, wines, and cocktails.

From Wednesday to Saturday, the evening menu is taken over by talented chef Oded Oren, head chef at some of the best seafood restaurants in his hometown of Israel. Oded brought his amazing food and cooking style to London back in 2011, and we’re thankful! His dishes are strongly influenced by his home culture and you can see this is reflected in Louie Louie’s dinner menu. Expect delicious veg-based dishes with meats and seafood cooked over charcoal.

 The food goes down all the better with the atmospheric music regularly played at the venue. The guys at Louie Louie have installed a great sound system, and from 10pm DJs play accessible yet credible music to get you in the party spirit. Check out the upcoming sets here.
