One of Downtown Memphis' sexy nightspots is Local Gastropub located along the Main Street Trolley line.
Whether it's for happy hour, cocktail hour, dinner, or late-night drinks, Local fits the bill. The Downtown spot is the original; a newer version opened in early 2013 in Midtown's Overton Square. Good food comes with a solid regional beer selection. For the big drinker, there is a good selection of high-gravity beers. And of course plenty of wine and cocktails are available for the non beer drinker.
The bar's patio is one of the welcoming spots along the trolley line; it's covered in the winter, making it a year-round spot.
Just inside, the space has a comfortable bar to the right and a long table for seating to the left. The downstairs cellar has a spacious seating area as well.
For one of Downtown's hip but comfortable drinking spots, Local has the right atmosphere.
