CLEVELAND, Ohio - Bar Louie, a new bar and restaurant at SouthPark mall in Strongsville, is marking the grand opening of its fourth Northeast Ohio location at 11 a.m. Friday with an invitation to all "Local Louies": The first 100 people who come to the Strongsville location with the first, middle or last name of Lou, Louise, Luigi, Luis, or any other variation of Louie will get a $10 Bar Louie Hook-UP Card, a gift card redeemable for food or drink at any Ohio Bar Louie.
"What a World Series grand opening weekend we have planned with a tailgate brunch to salute the Indians in the World Series and Browns at home against the Jets, " said Frank Como, general manager of the Strongsville Bar Louie, in a written announcement. He is also the GM of the other three Northeast Ohio locations.
Besides the Strongsville restaurant at 10 SouthPark Center, which employs 70 people, Bar Louie also has locations at 1352 West 6th St. in downtown Cleveland, 24337 Cedar Rd. at Legacy Village in Lyndhurst, and at 9 Main St. at Crocker Park in Westlake. All together, the four restaurants employ about 230 people, but Como said he is always looking for new employees, especially those with experience.
He said the Strongsville location is most similar to the Westlake Bar Louie, because it is attached to the mall and next to the movie theater. Including patio seating, the Strongsville Bar Louie can accommodate 260 people.
"We are so excited to meet our new community and welcome them into our bar and restaurant to drink and dine on the very best we have to offer, " Como said. "We hope the new location will become a place where residents and employees of Strongsville organizations and nearby communities can come together to relax and enjoy a quality experience."
