Only a little later than scheduled, a new “wine bar and sipping lounge” is almost ready to debut at The District at Green Valley Ranch.
Announcing an official opening date of July 1, The Local will slot into 1,000-square-foot space on Village Walk Drive, between Bath & Body Works and Chico’s and a short distance from co-owners Chris Connors and Li Hsun Sun’s three-year old success story, Me Gusta Tacos.
Also backed by local real-estate agent Randy Maher and his wife Amy Maher, The Local’s mission is to fill “a void in the Las Vegas/Henderson market of a simple wine bar with delicious food, great energy and a homey atmosphere.”
Planned to serve from lunch until evening, the wine bar will feature a weekday happy hour, wine tastings, plus a menu of salads, bruschetta dishes, paninis, and a collection of charcuterie boards, including the namesake “Local” offering three meats, cheeses, vegetables and dipping sauces. A Sunday-only brunch choice is also in the works.
Among the the cocktails, a white peach cosmopolitan, the lounge’s spin on an old Fashioned, and the retails hub’s own “District Dirty,” created with Tahoe Blue Vodka, olive brine, and a blue cheese olive.
