OK, I live downtown and I've tried a lot of fish and chips and no other restaurant gets close to The Local's. Plus, the ambiance of this place is amazing. A real historical treasure. Here's a tip: they've got a lunch menu with smaller portions...More

We stopped here for mid-afternoon drinks and a bite to eat - we just shared the Chicken Shots appetiszer and they were great! Friendly bartenders who made excellent recommendations on beer. They work as a team and all were very helpful. Will be back!

The Local celebrates two decades of enduring loyalty and adoration for its many offerings, from an 80-foot bar featuring a hand-carved back bar, numerous nooks and crannies for exchanging secrets, and ample space in the Whiskey Lounge for telling flat-out lies. Celebrate the highs and the lows in our Boardroom, Kissing Room and private event rooms, The Hollow, The Sanctuary and The Choir. Our food comes from our scratch kitchen, with an exciting menu under the direction of culinary director Vincent Francoual.
