Located in a 19th-century townhouse, Louie provides a luxurious space to graze on French and Creole cuisine whilst soaking up the unique ambience. Made up of The Alligator Bar, outdoor terrace and restaurant, this is one London establishment that’s not short on space. The Alligator Bar is a grand area with eclectic decor, dark wooden stalls, and plenty of low lighting to set the mood. Whilst the terrace offers a large, light and bright space that is perfect for brunch on summer weekends.

There are two separate menus for both the main restaurant and the Alligator Bar, with the former being the larger of the two. Think seabass carpaccio, lobster rolls and Côte de Boeuf to share, along with a choice of desserts such as a Southern pecan pie. Whereas the Alligator Bar has more of a snack offering, perfect for nibbling on whilst catching up with friends over a bottle of champagne. Expect indulgent plates of caviar with blinis, oysters, and potato croquettes with truffle mayo.

On Saturdays, guests can also enjoy one of London’s most glamorous brunches, which boasts a menu of Creolen classics, such as Louie’s BBQ shrimp in spiced butter sauce, lobster rolls, and buttermilk fried chicken burgers. Of course, there are still some more standard brunch options including the likes of eggs benedict and overnight oats.

No stranger to entertainment, Louie has plenty to keep you occupied during your visit. Featuring a rotating programme of musical genres, you can expect to hear anything from jazz and soul, to funk and disco. There are a variety of bands that perform throughout the week, and at weekends you’ll find the in-house DJs creating an electric atmosphere. There’s no better place to pull up a pew than at The Alligator for prime viewing of all the entertainment.


Is there live music?

Yes, every Tuesday there is a jazz night in the upstairs bar. It can get busy, so we'd advise booking ahead.
