The Local was established in 2005 by brother-sister proprietors Rue and Melissa Sexton. Originally from Ireland, the Sextons knew they could transport the friendly atmosphere of the Irish pubs so deeply ingrained in their culture, add some delicious, eclectic food to traditional fare, and spin in fantastic, intimate live music to create a unique space in the heart of Roncesvalles Village.

     Since then, The Local has become THE local pub to grab a pint, have a meal, meet old & new friends, and listen to a variety of musical performances. From the revolving art displays to the bartender playlists to the inviting back and front patios, The Local is designed to bring on the good times.
