LOUIE LOUIE  is a cafe during the day with excellent coffee, homemade cakes & sandwiches, guest chefs in the evenings  plus all day brunch at the weekends.

In the evening… we transform into a bar & restaurant featuring rotating Chefs In Residence preparing a broad range of cuisines from NY to Iran, Tel Aviv to Oaxaca, Hiroshima to Dulwich  (see below), natural wines and local beers. On selected Sunday evenings, we operate supper clubs with WeFiFo .

For our fifth evening residency of 2018, we welcome the rather brilliant James Donnelly for seven weeks starting on Tuesday 19th June. The former head chef at The Palmerston in Lordship Lane, Dulwich specialises in small plates that brings together the best modern British cuisine using nose-to-tail and root-to-leaf of locally sourced and sustainable produce from within our shores.

In James’s own words …

“There’s so much amazing food being produced responsibly, organically and sustainably within the UK right now, often grown right under our noses here in London, and I want to take full advantage of this incredible produce. My dishes, small and big, are a culmination of years of working alongside some great chefs (Tom Aikens – Tom’s Kitchen, Jamie Younger – Bibendum, The Palmerston), developing menus, tastes and travelling all around the world finding inspiration, flavours and new cooking techniques”.

Full menu here…

NEW! TUESDAY STEAL! Choose any big plate off the regular evening menu plus a glass of house wine, house beer or soft drink for £16… and any additional sides are just £2.50 each

At the weekends… DJs play through a bespoke vintage HiFi system with the emphasis firmly on great music and excellent sound quality.

Late Night Louie… our naughty basement is open between 7 pm & 1 am, Friday & Saturday for cocktails and lounge lizard vibes. You can reserve a booth by clicking here or calling 020 7450 3223. The space is also for hire for private parties of up to 40 guests every evening for drinks & food (check out our party menu here).

We have received an Arts Council Grant to present live music from local bands (Representative Music Residencies), so watch out for some fantastic monthly free gigs, workshops & special events out and about in the neighbourhood.

And finally… Time Out London readers have been voting for their most-loved local city venue in a range of different categories … and we have won best restaurant, best coffee place, best brunch spot AND best bar in Walworth 2018! Big love to all our faithful customers & staff, we could not have done this without you! xxx
