The Perfect  Neighborhood Restaurant & Bar

We welcome the Rittenhouse and Graduate Hospital neighborhoods to our intimate bar, dining room and cafe­style outdoor seating. Our goal every day is to provide the kind of food, beverage and hospitality
experience that our guests will share great stories about.

With my wife Debbie, we also own the Happy Rooster on the corner of 16th & Sansom in Philadelphia. We live in the Rittenhouse neighborhood mere blocks from Lou Bird’s with our 11 year ­old daughter, Lexi (can you guess her nickname?). I also own WNJ Capital by day, and I served as Lou Bird's designer and developer for the overhauled space. Our vision was simple: create Lou Bird's with the neighborhood in mind. The kind of comfortable, neighborhood restaurant and bar experience that we would enjoy ourselves. We hope you'll stop by and enjoy Lou Bird's for yourself (we just updated all the menus) and we look forward to seeing you here.

We created Lou Bird’s to provide the perfect neighborhood restaurant and bar experience that we would want to enjoy with our family and friends.
