The Hollow is a must see space that recalls old world taverns, complete with flickering candlelight, leather benches, and wooden accents. The Hollow offers some sound and AV capabilities allowing you to create a personalized playlist with your iPod, or a slideshow presentation.


Capacity: 40-50; mostly standing (Lounge – No Dining Tables)

The Choir is home to high-tops, leather sofas and armchairs and a drinking ledge with stools that looks out over the entire pub. The Choir is a casual, private space with a relaxed atmosphere and has become the most popular space at the Local for private events.


Capacity: 24 seated; 30 mostly standing

The Sanctuary’s hand-carved wooden panels and intricately engraved glass separate this space from the rest of the pub, and provides an exclusive space, just for you and your guests. It’s casual & elegant, perfect for small informal corporate mixers or smaller group dinners.


(*Not private*)

Wilde’s Corner is a large section of high-tops tucked into a corner section of the main pub area near the fireplace. This is a great area for a group that is looking to host a more casual affair, while still feeling apart of the main pub atmosphere!
