Lulu Bar has become one of the most popular destinations on 17 Ave. S.W. thanks to its stylish mid-century-style design and enclosed, heated patio that’s open year-round.

That creativity extends to the restaurant’s approachable yet innovative menu, which features dishes like a Vietnamese crepe during weekend brunch, gouda- and kohlrabi-stuffed perogies for dinner and mini fried chicken sandwiches during happy hour.
