THE STORY BEHIND THE ‘LOO

The name and logo of our restaurant was inspired by Waterloo Records, an independent and “underground” record store in Austin founded by owner Josh Karp’s father, Louis. Josh followed in his father’s entrepreneurial footsteps by creating a neighborhood gathering place featuring great food, drinks and music, as well as extraordinary and personable customer service.

Waterloo has led the evolution of downtown Louisville, most recently with its move from its original tiny “hole-in-the-wall” location to its current home two doors down. With its rooftop patio, vibrant mural and live music, Waterloo is a colorful and lively fixture of Main Street.
