In addition, we have a plethora of bourbons, craft beer, and cocktails,” he adds.
LouVino’s atmosphere parallels their dishes, as the interior is chic and industrial to represent an upbeat vibe. The main dining room can host up to 100 people and two private dining rooms are available and are able to host 14-40 people.
