'Tis the Season for a Safe Holiday Celebration at Bar LouieBar Louie sees you when you’re drinking … The staff knows when you’re being safe. You’ll get free Coke products for it … so be good for goodness sake!

That’s right. With parties, happy hours and more during the holiday season, the Original Gastrobar is promoting responsible drinking through a unique designated driver partnership with Coca-Cola.

Now through Dec. 31, from 4 p.m. to close, when groups get into the holiday spirit at any Bar Louie location, their DD will be rewarded with free Coke products all night. Bar Louie’s front-of-house staff have been trained to recognize when guests aren’t ordering alcoholic drinks due to their driving responsibilities. Once recognized, the server will tell the guest about the program, thank them for their dedication to safety and notify the manager to comp all of their non-alcoholic Coke products for the remainder of their visit. If there are multiple designated drivers per group or tab, they’ll all be entitled to the complimentary service.

And above all, we want our guests to be safe. This partnership with Coca-Cola invites our designated driver guests to join in the fun with alcohol-free beverages as we all celebrate the holiday season.”
