Bringing the sophistication of an uptown beer hall to the heart of Midtown, the hotly anticipated Local West finally opened it’s doors to the world in June 2011 and was besieged by locals from the very first . With over 6,000 square feet of outdoor space, complimented by pruned shrubbery, towering steel heaters and Bavarian-inspired umbrella canopies, Local West is a major contender for the “beer hall of the year” crown. A light-hearted snack menu offers the usual Fayre – soft pretzels, corn dogs and several variations of frites, however the main draw is a sixteen tap beer selection, with a few native craft ales thrown in for the discerning critic. Take advantage of everyday happy hours which run between 4 pm – 10 pm and languish in the sun, with views across to the Empire State.
