The Pubs

Cead Mile Failte. A Hundred Thousand Welcomes. 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.

Root for the home team in this large feeling, larger than life welcoming, joke telling, story creating, song singing, how’s-your-father asking place to make time stop. If you want to relax, it’s the grounded beauty on the other side of the bar you might try, where we offer a high dome, a sixteen foot high focal point, short snugs with tall ceilings, and cut glass reflecting the lighting of another era.

Once pouring the largest volume of Jameson Irish Whiskey in the world, the honor is ours to maintain. If it’s a pint of Guinness or Finnegan’s you want, it’s two or three you’ll find…our bar service and a newspaper, a plate of curry and always plenty of sport to watch.
