Irish
Our doors welcome you into the old world. In contrast with reputations in the lore of the Irish, our food is high priority. Fish & Chips, the classics and more than a few ringers for the worldly eaters. The craic is good. Come find a corner of the bar to lean up against, a snug to gather friends inside, or a lovely pub table to watch the world go by as you imbibe the finest pour.

Founded on December 17th, 1997, The Local celebrates over two decades of enduring loyalty and adoration for its many offerings, from a beautiful bar featuring a hand-carved back bar, numerous nooks and crannies for exchanging secrets, and ample space for telling flat-out lies. Celebrate the highs and the lows in our private event spaces.

Private party facilities
Paying homage to our geographical heritage, we have christened our secluded private dining / party space the “Cutting Room”, evoking the activity that ensures perfection and passionate attention to detail. (Just don’t end up on the cutting room floor…)

The Cutting Room features slide-up windows that open onto our main bar, allowing you to control the privacy of your event. Cut your whiskey with ginger ale to enjoy our signature Big Ginger, or with orange juice, lemon and fresh ginger for our O’Ginger. If you prefer your whiskey uncensored, we feature a wide variety of premium and special reserve varieties that perform nicely either neat on the rocks.

Book the Cutting Room for your meeting, cocktail party, special dinner, or the big game – a 50” flat-screen plasma television, slyly masked in the beautiful mill-work and laptop-compatible, will facilitate all your audiovisual needs.
