Description: 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.

Stopped by for after dinner drinks. Great atmosphere and good value on the drinks. We had fun people watching. The bartenders were friendly. We would come back again.

Service was slow and inattentive, but the food was great. That being said the prices are a little high in my opinion.

We managed a private room in the back without reservation on a Saturday night (August) at 6pm. It was cozy with a fireplace. It was a gorgeous evening and most people sat outside. That patio was very lively and all patrons seemed to be enjoying themselves. Our party of 10 all were pleased with The Local. It is surprisingly large inside, lots of dark wood, and many small rooms for conversation and to keep the noise down. One table at the front had a beer tap in the middle. The food came very hot. One person commented that the calamari was crispy and not rubbery. I had the 2 Gingers Chicken Sandwich which was marinated in their 2 Gingers whiskey steak sauce. They agreed to modify it to lower fat with less bacon and cheese. It was delicious, choice meat, very hot. Our server was very attentive yet I hardly noticed her presence. The drinks were strong enough and everything was reasonably priced. This would be a good place for any casual gathering, large or small. It's right in the heart of downtown on Nicollet Mall.

We stopped at a few places downtown and this was one of our favorite! The beer selection was great. Service was wonderful as well! Will be going back next time we are in the area!

We tried the Local again on "Wingsday" - special wings on Wednesdays/ $2 per pound. They were very tasty and were great appetizers. They have a sweet selection of beers and ales and the menu has a little of something for everyone. Service continues to be superb.
