Lou s Pub 726 29th St S 205-322-7005 BIRMINGHAM

Half liquor store and half bar, this is a unique spot to catch a drink in Lakeview. Lou s has patio seating and indoor tables with a neighborhood bar feel. I love Lou s because it is a truly one-of-a-kind joint where you always see someone you know. It is just a great hang spot with lots of interesting locals and media types. A good place to meet a friend or client for sure. John M.
