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. There’s always something to watch. 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 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.
Root for the home team (a long way from home) in this large feeling, larger than life welcoming, joke telling, story creating, song singing (Being Irish ourselves, Irish lads need not apply), 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.
For four years running, we’ve poured 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…
Our Mission: “Give every guest an experience so that they cannot wait to come back.”
Our high ceilings ring with the echo of the life of everyman, and the company of the men and the women that know better.
