The Local

931 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN 55402 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-904-1000

Location Description:

How much wood would a wood-carver carve if a wood-carver would have free rein to fill up an enormous space with bars and sculptures and snugs and whatnot? Answer: A lot of wood. A lot. This much wood makes you crave an Irish whiskey and a pint of Harp, which are exactly what the Local seems to sell a billion of on a Saturday night. So it's a great place to drink, a swell place to collect the phone numbers of comely strangers. And if you know what the gossip columns have reported happened in that one snug off near the bathrooms, give yourself extra points for knowing your Twin Cities tongue-twisters down cold.
